G.I. Joe issues:

Overview[edit]

The story follows G.I. Joe as they first learn about Cobra, suffer attacks, and retaliate. Whilst the two groups fight a secret war across the globe, Cobra's high-ranking members vie for power and control, with figures including the Baroness, Destro, and Dr. Mindbender all coming to blows with each other. The overarching plot for the series revolves around Destro's M.A.S.S. Device, a revolutionary teleportation system with the potential to give Cobra the power to dominate the world.

Creative team[edit]

The series is written by Chuck Dixon, with art duties mostly shared between Robert Atkins and S.L. Gallant on a rotating basis. Alex Cal draws for a three-issue stint, whilst Allan Goldman assisted Atkins on the final issue. Andrew Crossley is permanent colorist for the book.

The one-shot G.I. Joe: Special was written by Brian Reed with art by Joe Suitor.
