There have been a lot of “dream crossovers” in comics recently. Batman met the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the Shadow, the Lone Ranger met his descendant in the Green Hornet, and now, the forces of G.I. Joe are going to meet the Six Million Dollar Man. The book will be written by Ryan Ferrier with art by G.I. Joe artist SL Gallant.
“To say Shannon and I are having fun with bringing these two iconic properties together would be a massive understatement,” Ferrier said in a press release. “We are going full-tilt and no-holds-barred with this story. It’s everything we love about G.I. Joe, the classic characters, and massive action, colliding face-first with the steel-infused, secret agent coolness of The Six Million Dollar Man. We are chomping at the bit for everyone to read this comic with a kung fu grip.”
“Ryan and Shannon have found the perfect story to tell,” IDW’s Editor-In-Chief David Hedgecock said. “Fans both new and old are going to be amazed at what this creative team is putting together. This series beautifully blends all the classic tropes of the characters while simultaneously creating something exciting and fresh. We are thrilled to be working with this team and with the fine folks at Dynamite to bring this series to the fans.”
The event will launch in January 2018.
