Collecting the art of G.I. Joe: Volumes 5, 6 and Slipcase are a GO

It’s done! We did it! With your help 3D Joes will be able to complete the mission of documenting every piece of G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero painted art released from 1982-1994 in the United States!

So now that Volumes five, six and the slip cover have been funded, what’s next? The money raised above goal will go to two places: 

  • Volume 6 (1993-1994) needs more great art, and it won’t be cheap! (more on that below)
  • Volume 3 (1986-1987) will be reprinted to fill all Kickstarter orders and keep these books in print for G.I.Joe fans both old and new

Carson shared a full breakdown that you can read after the break below. Included in the breakdown are details on what volume 6 will include and fans are gonna love it! There will be 20 pages of unreleased and international art in Volume 6. We realize this will only be a drop in the bucket relative to all of the art created around the world to support our favorite toy line, but it will be an interesting cross-sectional survey and hopefully it will inspire some of you to collect international Joes. To give you an idea of what we’ll see, check out this out –
