Yo, Joe! Celebrate 40 years of the Real American Hero with this oversized deluxe edition filled with iconic stories and exciting bonus content!
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #21: “Silent Interlude” is not only one of the most recognized G.I. Joe issues, but one of the most famous comics of all time. Its groundbreaking use of art to tell a story with no dialogue or captions has become a touchstone in the history of comics, referenced in countless subsequent homages. Along with the original issue, a new interpretation is included with 22 different artists doing a single page, including Rob Liefeld, Tim Lattie, Netho Diaz, Kei Zama, Antonio Fuso, Robert Atkins, Tom Feister, Maria Keane, and more!
Also included are classic issues from the series, starting with the one that started it all, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #1: "Operation: Lady Doomsday;" the short story "...Hot Potato;" issue #24 "The Commander Escapes" with art by the great Russ Heath; issue #26 "Snake Eyes: The Origin;" issue #50 "The Battle of Springfield;" and issue #86 "...Not Fade Away."
Bonus content includes an essay by Chad Bowers (Snake Eyes: Deadgame) about the impact "Silent Interlude" and G.I. Joe had on comics; the original breakdowns by Larry Hama for issue #21; character profile cards; and a vehicle gallery.
