EXCLUSIVE: G.I. Joe vs. the Six Million Dollar Man #1 Covers Revealed

Last month at New York Comic Con, IDW Publishing announced a crossover between G.I. Joe (long licensed by IDW) and The Six Million Dollar Man, the property that started life as a ’70s TV show and calls Dynamite Entertainment its comic book home. Now, CBR can reveal three covers and solicitation text for the February-scheduled first issue — and the crossover’s full title, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero vs. the Six Million Dollar Man.

Yep — rather than a team-up, this series will see the highly trained special missions force in opposition to Steve Austin (at least initially), and there’s a good reason for it, as the Six Million Dollar Man has been hacked by Cobra. Here’s the official synopsis for issue #1, from writer Ryan Ferrier and artist S L Gallant: “The greatest American heroes go face-to-face with the most dangerous living weapon… Steve Austin! Hacked by COBRA, the Six Million Dollar Man has the G.I. JOEs in his bionic targets as the fate of world peace hangs by a thread and Cobra Commander holds the world’s infrastructure in his venomous clutches!”

“We are going full-tilt and no-holds-barred with this story,” Ferrier said in the initial press release announcing the series. “It’s everything we love about G.I. Joe, the classic characters, and massive action, colliding face-first with the steel-infused, secret agent coolness of The Six Million Dollar Man. We are chomping at the bit for everyone to read this comic with a kung fu grip.”

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero vs. the Six Million Dollar Man #1 is scheduled for release on Feb. 7, and CBR has the first look at the issue’s main cover by John Cassaday, along with variants by Gallant and Jerry Ordway. Check back with CBR tomorrow for IDW’s full February 2018 solicitations.
