IDW Digital launches with Online Store!

Depending on where you live purchasing Comics or at least the one you want to read can be tiresome. As big as the industry has impacted entertainment you would think there would be at least a small shop in every city. Unfortunately that’s still not the case. Fans either being regulated to limited selections and big name brick and mortars like Books a Million, Barnes and Noble and the like, or being limited by what they can find by 3rd party online retailers and what they may have capped their orders at.

Well fans of IDW can now breath a sigh of relief if they are in any of those unfortunate situations. IDW Publishing has launched IDW Digital and looks to expand their reach with their publications.

In other words you now have no excuse to be checking out their Joe, or any of their other amazing titles!

Final Week to Support The USO with the FINEST!

It’s no secret that we here at CobraIsland love The Finest. The Ladies of The Finest maybe even more so!

 

 

 

With that being said we are firm believers that all Vipers and Vipettes should have one of their 2016 Calendars hanging some where displayed with prominence in their homes. If that is to happen though they need YOUR support! In supporting them not only are you helping an amazing Calendar be achieved and earning potential awesome perks of being a contributor you are also supporting and donating to the USO.

 

“As you know by now, the Girls of the Finest charity calendar is no ordinary pin-up calendar. All your favorite female characters (plus a few twists) will be portrayed here – 12 months of our amazing female costumers photographed exclusively for this calendar!

As passionate as we are about G.I. Joe, we also know a good cause when we see one. The Finest is honored for the opportunity to partner with the USO, a nonprofit organization that has supported America’s troops and their families since 1941. One hundred percent of the net proceeds earned from this campaign will go to the USO.

This year’s cause is near and dear to our hearts. A significant portion of Finest members are active duty troops and veterans. Many of our own members and their families have directly benefited from the USO over the years, so being able to partner with this historic organization and give something back is an amazing opportunity!

What better way to come together as a fan community and support the Real American Heroes of the U.S. military and their families!

We Need YOU!”

Check out some of the cool Perks!
