Adam Riches Special exclusive Baroness variant cover for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #252

Adam Riches let us know that a special variant cover for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #252 will be released at JoeCon.

Attention G.I. Joe fans!
I’m excited to announce the release of a special exclusive Baroness variant cover for IDW Publishing’s G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #252, I’ve created in collaboration with WONDERWORLD COMICS, to be released at GIJoeCon (Official) (June 21-24) in Chattanooga, TN!

For those of you unable to attend JoeCon, it is my understanding WonderWorld will be offering a limited number of pre-sale copies for non-attendees (details on that as soon as I have them). Of course, if you are attending JoeCon (you really should be), both myself and Larry Hama will be in attendance to sign copies throughout the show, and bonus: The back cover features a brand-new COBRA logo blank, just begging to be sketched on. 😉
See ya in Chattanooga
