If you’re not following Mr. Tom Waltz on Twitter, then you don’t know what you’re missing, as this Gentleman knows how to build HYPE! Just yesterday he shared 3 amazing pieces, all pertaining to the upcoming Special Missions story arch starting with IDW Publishing‘s G.I.Joe A Real American Hero #251.
While we’re on the topic of #251, I’d like to issue a retraction and off an apology – This past Tuesday I noted that Issue #251 should be on stands on the 25th (yesterday). Please note that this information was not correct; Issue #251 will be available next week, May 2nd. Apologies for any confusion and/or inconvenience I may have caused.
Now, back to Special Missions! Tom shared 2 pages from upcoming issues, along with an announcement regarding the cover of issue #255, the special oversized conclusion of the Special Missions arc. Here’s the scoop:
In issue #251, Special Missions #1, prepare to give and take fire with Stalker! As noted above, this issue will be on stands May 2nd.
In Issue #252, Special Missions Part 2, the Baroness means business (and then some!)
Issue #255 will have a special Retailer Incentive Cover, a Tri-Fold (gatefold) cover featuring a Plethora of Cobra Baddies!
As if the Special Missions news wasn’t enough to get you going, Tom also shared some ARAH Goodness in the form of a Top Secret G.I.Joe project coming in September! Keep an eye out for the announcement from IDW Publishing and of course right here on the Island.
