I am currently working on an iBook Textbook that catalogues all the G.I. Joe "modern era/25th style" figures (much like the Bellomo book) using personal collection pics and pics from various sites (like our beloved Hisstank, YoJoe.com, Generals Joes.com, etc. - all credited for). This is still a work in progress and I am updating it on a daily basis.
I have been wanting to create a book that could serve as a checklist and as a multimedia guide to the modern era of Joe for some time now. It has definitely been a labor of love and I can't wait to share it with my fellow Joe bros.
I am currently using iBooks Author for the Mac. This allows each page to show photo slideshows, interactive photos (like blueprints), video (I have short 5-10 second clips from the Sunbow series and Resolute that show the character), and weblinks. The iBook can only be viewed on an iPad.
I am thinking of making this book available for FREE to everyone at this years's G.I. Joe Con in NOLA, which I will be attending (my second Joe Con besides Dallas). I am thinking of setting up shop in the lobby or other places with my MacBook and downloading it for anyone who wants it. Below is a draft screen shot of one of the figure pages for the A.V.A.C. Once I finalize it, I will publish and make available to other Tankers.
Let me know your thoughts about this - feedback and ideas are highly appreciated!
