Here's some great news for fans of G.I.Joe: Origins and Cobra ...
It’s the year of G. I. JOE! Building on the tremendous fan support of G.I. JOE: Origins and G.I. JOE: COBRA, published under license from Hasbro, Inc., IDW is pleased to announce extensions for both mini-series! Offering a look at the people who make up the team, G.I. JOE: Origins will become an ongoing series, starting in August. G.I. JOE: COBRA Special #1 will be released in September, offering insights inspired by revelations in issue #4 of that series, on-sale in June. For more information about IDW’s G.I. JOE comics, visit IDWPublishing.com/GIJOE.
"Reaction to all three of our G.I. JOE series has been beyond expectations, with both fans and critics raving about Origins and COBRA in particular," said Andy Schmidt, IDW 's G.I. JOE editor. "After seeing the fan response of both series, we came up with enough great content to extend them both. Even though neither series is over yet, fans are already asking for more. We're grateful for their support on these books, and so we’re happy to give them what they want!"
“We are thrilled with the direction IDW has taken with G.I. JOE. Their success in creating amazing and engaging storylines based on our classic characters is evidenced by the enthusiastic response from fans. The decision to expand both G.I. JOE: Origins and G.I. JOE: Cobra from their original scope shows the dedication and passion both Hasbro and IDW have for delivering fans exciting new experiences,” said Michael Kelly, Hasbro’s Senior Global Publishing Manager.
G.I. JOE: Origins #6 and #7 put the spotlight on Scarlett and Mainframe, respectively. Writer Chuck Dixon focuses on these two important characters, adding another layer to the main G.I. JOE ongoing series. Starting with issue #8, Larry Hama returns to G.I. JOE: Origins for three issues of action-packed missions! “There are literally hundreds of great stories to tell in Origins that take place before G.I. JOE and COBRA ever met, and that's exactly what you'll get in the book,” said Schmidt.
Coming in September, G.I. JOE: COBRA Special #1 picks up on several major revelations in issue #4. The final COBRA issue will feature the same creative team as the rest of the series and is sure to be at the top of any G.I. JOE fan’s list. After beating up on G.I. JOE for four issues, writers Christos Gage and Mike Costa are not done yet, and artist Antonio Fuso brings every agonizing emotion to life. Added Schmidt: “The COBRA Special will reveal a lot more about our sinister organization and will have repercussions throughout the G.I. JOE line.”
G.I. JOE: Origins Issue #6 launches in August 2009.
G.I. JOE: COBRA Special #1 launches in September 2009.

Good, I feel like the comics don't get enough love here. I don't see a ton of threads about the comics.
