In celebration of Yo Joe June, today Skybound and Image Comics, in collaboration with leading toy and game company Hasbro, announced the debut of all-new ongoing series G.I. JOE #1 from the superstar creative team of writer Joshua Williamson (Duke, Cobra Commander), artist Tom Reilly (Duke) and colorist Jordie Bellaire (W0rldtr33). The biggest comic book launch of the decade will introduce a bold new vision of G.I. JOE and Cobra to the Energon Universe on Wednesday, November 13.

Conrad Hauser, Codename DUKE, has assembled a special force known as G.I. Joe to battle the rising power of the mysterious COBRA in the aftermath of the Autobots and Decepticonsí arrival on Earth. But the enigmatic Cobra Commander has unleashed the power of Energon like never before!

The all-new series will become another tentpole of the Energon Universe, the crown jewel of the historic collaboration between Hasbro and Skybound, who has introduced a brand-new era of the TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE franchises in one shared comic book universe. Energon Universe titles include the ongoing series Void Rivals by writer Robert Kirkman (Invincible, The Walking Dead), artist Lorenzo De Felici (Kroma), and colorist Patricio Delpeche (The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country) and TRANSFORMERS by writer Daniel Warren Johnson (Extremity, Do a Powerbomb), artist Jorge Corona (Middlewest), and colorist Mike Spicer (Stillwater, Murder Falcon). The Energon Universe also includes G.I. JOE miniseries Duke, from Joshua Williamson , Tom Reilly and Jordie Bellaire ; Cobra Commander from Joshua Williamson, Andrea Milana (Impact Winter: Rook) and Annalisa Leoni (Oblivion Song); Scarlett, from writer Kelly Thompson (Black Widow, Birds of Prey), artist Marco Ferrari (Frontiersman), and colorist Lee Loughridge (I Hate This Place, Killadelphia); and Destro, from writer Dan Watters (Loki, Universal Monsters: Creature from the Black Lagoon Lives!), artist Andrei Bressan (Dark Ride, Birthright), and colorist Adriano Lucas (Dark Ride, Birthright), which introduce the iconic characters of the G.I. JOE and Cobra factions to the Energon Universe. Fans should expect canít-miss moments from every issue of the Energon Universe, as secrets are unveiled along the path to answering the BIG questions from some of the biggest franchises in comics today.

So Classified Cobra Commander is dressed like a bellhop or doorman.

And Skybound Cobra Commander is dressed like Horatio Hornblower.

Thank God Classified is finally giving us a real CC. The state of design today suggests we would never get him.

I'm gonna need Mercer and the new Chameleon (blonde assassin in red and black) in Classified.

CR - I am intrigued by the idea that there will be a "Hama-verse" apart from the Energon universe. Hama's characters and stories inspired the old cartoon series, but never crossed over. Maybe that's as it should be. Even as a 4th Grader, I understood the distinction between comic book and cartoon continuity, and it was just fine with me.

So I am curious, how is Serpentor alive again since he was killed back during the original Marvel run?

Hey, JayC. In the last arc of the previous series, Mindbender cloned Ghengis Khan directly but gave him knowledge of modern millitary tactics. He is the new "Serpentor", but not actually the original. He is wearing the suit and all that.

Isn't that Andy *Kubert*?

Yeah. It was a typo on the Popverse.com page and got carried over here. It happens sometimes.
