IDW has just release a compilation of GI JOE short stories. While they’re prose stories and not comics, they do have illustrations, and while they all deal with the continuing conflict between the Joes and Cobra, they’re not part of one continuos story. Authors include: Chuck Dixon, Matt Forbeck, Jonathan Maberry, John Skipp, Cody Goodfellow, Duane Swierczynski, Denniss Tafoya, Jon McGoran and Gabriele Dell’Otto. My role in this project was as the co-editor, along with Jeff Conner. I did contribute a story, but it’s more of a short ‘bonus’ story. IDW decided to include it because it introduces a new GI JOE Charachter that they plan to use in the comic series.

My new mini-series from IDW comes out this May. This is my first collaboration with artists Howard Chaykin and Antonio Fuso. It’s five issues, each issue has two stories, one Joe, one Cobra. Each story examines some aspect of their past, their military specialty or their personal philosophy of life. We deal with issues like torture, poverty, suicide, human evolution, medical malpractice, morality vs science, and Sensory Integration Dysfunction. If I had a chance to sit down with these characters and say “Tell me about yourself”, this mini-series would be the answer. It’s called “Hearts and Minds”, and although there aren’t any zombies, I hope you’ll enjoy it.
