Copra creator Michel Fiffe has heard the call — “Yo Joe!” — and will tackle the G.I. Joe team in a new miniseries, G.I. Joe: Sierra Muerte.
“Love and loss, combat and cunning, cheap laughs and high stakes – this is everything I want in a G.I. Joe comic,” Fiffe told Nerdist. Fiffe’s story will feature Snake Eyes, Roadblock, Lady Jaye, Scarlett, Rock ‘n Roll, Gung-Ho, Stalker and Flint, who go rogue on a rescue mission.
This seems like a great companion piece to Tom Sciloi’s Transformers vs. G.I. Joe series, and will look great on my bookshelf sitting next to it. You can check out preview pages at the Nerdist. The series comes out next spring.
Update: some quotes from the official press release, which notes that Fiffe will be at the New York Comic Con next month to promote it:
“The opportunity to put my own spin on this iconic franchise was impossible to resist,” said Fiffe. “I wanted to take all of my favorite players and give them a chance to shine in their own unique ways. By creating the entire package, I tap into the personalized core of this classic cast. Love and loss, combat and cunning, cheap laughs and high stakes – this is everything I want in a G.I. Joe comic.”
“It is a true honor to be working with Michel Fiffe, one of the industry’s most unique and talented voices, on this project,” said IDW Associate Publisher David Hedgecock. “Michel’s love and passion for classic G.I. Joe shines through with every new page he turns in.”
