Writer Larry Hama's run on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero is unmatched in breadth; with its first 150 issueswww.skybound.com
It’s just a continuation of the original run. It’s not a part of the Energon universe.How does this new series fit in with the old? It seems like a continuation, but from what I understand, it's also connected to the Transformers stuff, is that right? How does that work?
That includes G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #301 selling over 50,000 copies – a number that is not only notable for likely generating envy from the execs at Marvel and DC for doing so without any high ratio variants but also a massive growth over the series sales at former publisher IDW (where it averaged anywhere from 7-10K unit sales per issue). This also tops the sales for other recent high-profile GI Joe launches, including Rob Liefeld's Snake Eyes: Deadgame #1 and more than doubling sales for the variant cover-laden anniversary issue G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #300.
And equally meaningful is the nearly 25,000 copies sold of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #1 Larry Hama Cut, a reprint of the series debut issue from Marvel with correct dialogue honouring Hama's original wishes and printed on pure nostalgia, I mean "newsprint." While the issue has been reprinted many times, this is the first time with the aforementioned dialogue correction and it looks like the G.I. Joe fans turned out in a way we haven't seen in quite a long time.
