COMIC-CON: MAX BROOKS TO WRITE G.I. JOE MINI-SEIRES

IDW Publishing at Comic-Con Internation on Friday announced that New York Times best-selling author of World War Z and Zombie Survival Guide Max Brooks will be writing a G.I. Joe mini-series in 2010.

An Emmy-winning writer, Brooks has brought his own unique style to both TV and print. Brooks was part of the writing team for Saturday Night Live for 40 episodes from 2001 to 2003 and began acting in the 1980s. Brooks' The Zombie Survival Guide was released in 2003, and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War followed in 2006 .

"Both Chris Ryall (IDW editor-in-chief) and I read World War Z and we knew we had to try to get Max to write something for us. What we didnšt know is that Max is a huge G.I. Joe fan and had expressed interest in writhing G.I. Joe to (Cobra writer) Christos Gage," said Andy Schmidt, IDW's G.I. Joe editor. "Synchronicity ensued and G.I. Joe has never looked or read so well! Wešre very pleased to add Maxšs vision to the G.I. Joe canon.˛

The five-issue miniseries will be the first G.I. Joe comic for Brooks, and his first partnership with IDW.

"I'm thrilled to be working on an icon of my youth, and after this, my next project will be Different Stokes 2.5," Brooks said.



COMIC-CON: IDW'S G.I. JOE PLANS

IDW Publishing unveiled its plans for G.I. Joe comics at a panel at Comic-Con International on Friday, including Larry Hama's return and more of G.I. Joe Cobra.

Larry Hama returns to G.I. Joe in #8 in October, and series II of G.I. Joe Cobra will launch in 2010. Robert Atkins returns for a five-issue arc.

"We've essentially loaded the bases this last year with our G.I. Joe books and our creators are ready to swing away with year two! Wešve learned a lot about what makes G.I. Joe tick and the stories are only getting better,˛ said IDW's G.I. Joe editor, Andy Schmidt. "The fan response to all the books has been tremendous, but wešre bringing it to a whole new level this year."

Starting with issue #8, IDW is shaking up G.I. Joe: Origins, when Larry Hama returns to write a three-issue story arc with art by Andrea Mutti.

Marc Audreyko and Ben Templesmith chronicle the Baroness' origin in issue #11. In issue #12, Klaus Scherwinski illustrates J.T. Krulšs origin story of Beachhead, including an explanation of the character's amnesia.

Ripcord is introduced into the comics universe in a two-part arc with issues #13 and 14, scripted by Scott Beatty with art by S L Gallant. And Merrill Hagan makes his G.I. Joe debut with Scherwinski returning on art in issue #15, featuring the first appearance of Snow Job, as he adventures across South America on skis.

G.I. Joe: Cobra II picks up from the end of the first series. Written by Mike Costa and Chris Gage, with art and covers by Antonio Fuso and Howard Chaykin, Cobra II delves even deeper into the Cobra organization and continues to follow Chuckles on his own personal mission.

G.I. Joe the ongoing series continues with artist Robert Atkins, who launched the series for IDW and will return for five issues, beginning with #13. Chuck Dixon continues as writer, and the story will see the demise of a well-known G.I. Joe character.
