What is the difference between the Blue and Black Label editions? I spent a while on their website and now this post comparing the two and the only difference I saw was a different artist on the hand drawn stuff and I it looks like one vs. multiple hand drawn sketches? Whatever the differences are I will be getting the Joe Blue Label!!!

The difference is typically in the art. We commission the artists to do more elaborate, more time intensive work.

Blue Label is also stamped with the Blue foil imprint, bound in blue and has a blue satin bookmark ribbon. So there's some really nice small touches.

The GI Joe art should be in the office soon and we will definitely be passing along previews of it. Can't wait to see it!
