Official Press Release
CHICAGO, IL -- G.I. Joe: Reborn has literally disappeared from store racks from coast
to coast. The latest offering from Devil's Due Publishing has
completely sold out at the distributor level.
Written by John Ney Rieber and penciled by Joe Bennett and Javier
Saltares, Devil's Due marketing knew that there was a lot of excitement
surrounding the books.
Still, DDP president Josh Blaylock was surprised by how quickly the
title vanished, despite its hefty size. "G.I.Joe Reborn was a nice
thick forty-eight page, $4.95 book, and we overprinted twenty percent.
Thanks to a lot of hard work from my team, and the killer creative
talent behind it, it's paid off in full. Thanks to everyone who picked
up the title!"
Blaylock added, "The Cobra Reborn and G.I.Joe one-shots set the stage
for the all new continuity that is G.I.JOE RELOADED, and this confirms
how well it's being received. I can't wait until people see what
Rieber and crew have planned next. What Cobra Commander is planning
will have MAJOR consequences for the entire world."
G.I. Joe: Reborn was the compliment to the story started in Cobra :
Reborn (by Spider-Man/Wolverine: Origin writer Paul Jenkins) and was
one of the first titles Devil's Due Publishing announced as an
independent publisher. The series is gaining notoriety for its
grounded, edgy portrayal of the mythos. There is a strong sense of fan
support and validation with this news, as the company evolves out of
its "eighties" niche, establishing a new G.I.Joe continuity for both
new and veteran fans.
Devil's Due wants retailers to know that the first issue of the
follow-up ongoing series, G.I.JOE RELOADED, is still in stock but
moving fast, and Cobra Reborn is still available thanks to a hefty overprint.
The "Classic" series G.I.JOE: A Real American Hero continues as well, and will
feature a back-up story by Aspen Studios (Fathom, Superman)
introducing a new villain to the mythos starting in June.
