IDW PUBLISHING LANDS G.I. JOE

Hasbro has reached an agreement with IDW Publishing to launch an all-new line of G.I. Joe vs. Cobra comic books.

As part of the agreement, IDW will produce a new monthly comic series, as well as deluxe reprints of the G.I. Joe property's vast comic library. IDW also has the rights for trade paperbacks and graphic novels.

The first products from this deal, a new monthly comic book series, will be launched with an introductory debut issue in October. It will feature new storylines.

In 2009, IDW will also produce comic series both inspired by and based on the upcoming G.I. Joe live-action motion picture from Paramount Pictures and Hasbro slated for August 7, 2009, as well as deluxe reprints.

"We are thrilled at the prospect of expanding our relationship with IDW. Theyıve done an outstanding job with Transformers in the comic/hobby segment, national bookstores and mass market chains," said Matt Gildea, Publishing Director, Hasbro. "IDW would bring that same expertise to the G.I. Joe brand in both new content and the existing G.I. Joe vs. Cobra library. Together, Hasbro and IDW would continue to engage G.I. Joe fans of all ages with amazing graphics and storylines."

"G.I. Joe will be a perfect extension of the partnership we've developed with Hasbro over the past three years," said Ted Adams, IDW's President. "We are ecstatic about the opportunity to build upon the great history of the G.I. Joe brand and to present the type of entertainment and storytelling that our readers enjoy from our many licensed properties."
