    Man this is a match made in heaven. As a big GIJOE fan and a big Dixon fan I never thought of him writing the Joe series. I am very excited.

    Gage, Dixon & Hama? Man, some mainstream stuff is going to be canned from pick up list that month to make room... maybe permanently if it's good.

    Sweet. Chuck Dixon's one of my favorite writers, and G. I. Joe was right up there with M.A.S.K. and Transformers when I was a youngin'. Never read a comic book about them before, however, but I sure as heck plan to now. Hope Jinx is featured somewhere down the road. She was always my favorite Joe(anne).

    Thanks for the link and all the new info. I am looking forward to it but just hope they don't flood the market and therefore bore the reader. Still think this is gonna be good!

    I wish I could be more excited about hearing that both Hama & Dixon are doing GI JOE.

    After trying out both their "comeback books" (Stormshadow & GI Joe Declassified in Hama's case, Robin and Batman & Outsiders in Dixon's), I found them all to be awful, cliched boring reads.

    Maybe I've outgrown their writing styles, I don't know.

    Hope they do a better job on Joe...

    While, Andy Schmidt was the addition that convinced me to jump onboard, seeing Chuck Dixon and Christos Gage attached really has me psyched.

    You're just all sorts of awesome, Chuck.
