If you're going to the G.I. JOE Convention, stop by the IDW booth!

This Saturday, May 1st, comic stores throughout North America will take part in the annual Free Comic Book Day, offering doezens of comics for free! If Free Comic Book Day wasn't exciting enough, IDW is re-launching the classic GI JOE: Real American Hero series with Larry Hama! The first issue of the relaunch can be yours for free at your local store. The series picks up again in July with GI JOE: Real American Hero #156.

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #156 is written by Hama, with art by Augustin Padilla and covers by Padilla and Rod Whighman.

The '80s live on in this all-new series that spins out of the Free Comic Book Day issue 155-1/2 and hearkens back to the beloved JOE comics from your childhood! Larry Hama returns to script Real American Hero even as COBRA wins the bid to provide internal security for a terrorist-beleaguered USA. First order of business: put out a secret assassination order on the disbanded G.I. Joes.Ā SNAKE EYES isn't taking it lying down and overreacts maybe just a tiny bit...
