Fred Van Lente Leaving IDW GI Joe Main Title

About a week about, Newsarama broke the news that IDW GI Joe main title writer Fred Van Lente will be leaving the book after #11. I was really disappointed when I heard this because I really enjoyed the direction that Fred had taken Joe. It was a breath of fresh air and I was very surprised by this. Fred said his reason for leaving was that he had too much going on and something had to give. I was also surprised to hear that Fred thinks he accomplished all that he had wanted with Joe through only 11 comics. This makes me think that IDW and Van Lente agreed to a short run from the beginning. How could you accomplish all your goals with a GI Joe comic in 11 issues?

I really loved the retail incentive cover art for Cobra Vol. 2 #19 featuring the Baroness and I recently had the opportunity to buy that and an alternative unused cover featuring Chameleon!!! Fuso did an incredible job ob both of these and they are now hanging on one of the walls in my office! The first picture is scan of the final produced cover, followed by the Baroness art and Chameleon art!

Original Comic Art – Inks !!!

I picked these up a little bit ago, but never shared them until now. They are the original inks for several different issues of IDW GI Joe #1. Some highlights include some of the first images of Krake, Destro killing some prisoner and the Hard Master (I think).
