I just found this today at Walmart for $5.97. Here's the synopsis:
"Part of an elite covert military team, Lieutenant Duke Hauser and his buddy Ripcord Weems are dispatched to the small oil-rich South American country of San Sebastiao to help quell a revolution. The multinational peacekeeping force known as G. I. Joe has secretly sent special ops to support Duke's unit. Their other mission: Find out who's playing both sides of the conflict by supplying each with the same advanced lethal weaponry. But it turns out that the devious culprit has raised the stakes - promising to deliver an army of super soldiers in the near future. If Duke's squad and the G. I. Joe team can't stop the revolution, halt the proliferation of weapons, and eliminate the threat of laboratory-produced warriors, a dark plot toward world domination will soon be launched...."

The book isn't bad - but it confirms our greatest fears about Marlon Wayans: he is constantly cracking wise during combat, outside of combat, and even in consoling teammates! If this author wasn't the same guy who wrote the novel for the movie, I suggest maybe it was one man's interpretation, but I don't think that is possible. Ripcord has become Cool Breeze - the joe who only lasted one comic book! (GI Joe 112)

Lt. Duke Hauser?!?
So he's not even 1SG or MSG Conrad Hauser?
For $6.00 I'll give it a try.

Dont get me wrong I've been excited for a gi joe novel written for adults, but after the first 10 pages I hope "rip" gets killed before the movie. Its not just that he is cracking jokes in combat, its that they are the lamest most expected jokes. I havnet encounted the "Aw Hell no" but I'm 100% sure its coming

As for the novel, its tough to read his "parts" in the novel.... makes one pessimistic about the coming film.
"His cereal never gets soggy.It sits there,staying crispy,just for him."
"His organ donation card, also lists his beard."
"The police often question him,just because they find him interesting."
"He once punched a magician. Thatís right. You heard me."
He is.....The Most Interesting Man In The World
