WWZ was one of the best books I read last year and I'm definitely looking forward to this. Considering he's a New York Times Bestseller, I'm surprised IDW has been hyping this more. Someone like him could bring in readers who might not otherwise read a Joe book and increase readership.

I'm brand new here, so sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but what is this Mr Brooks mini?

its a five issue mini-series with each issue focusing on a joe and a cobra. two stories each / a day in the life. so far all we know is one of the characters is firefly. that's all i know.

Honestly, with all the series that have been announced I really don't see this series seeing daylight until at least the conclusion of Operation HISS. There's already too much on the plate as is: G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, G.I. Joe: Cobra II, G.I. Joe: Operation HISS, G.I. Joe: Origins.

yeah, i'm expecting it after the conclusion of the cobra mini. i'd just like to hear more info on the book. its easily the most anticipated for me, personally. i read world war z and fell in love with it. i think he can do wonders in the joe universe.

doesn't hurt having a new york times bestseller writing a joe tale, either. plus, seeing firefly will be great. he's always been one of my favorites, pre-ninja tack-on, of course.

hope he still has that swiss bank account.

To potentially de-thread this; what the hell is OPERATION HISS?? Is that not a reprint of a move tie in comic? That isn't a series, is it?

And why even announce Max Brooks as an author of a book last summer if it isn't going to see daylight until more than a year later? They didn't announce anything that Hama was doing and then they gave us 155+... So I am thinking this may not happen at all...

It sounded like #1 of the Operation HISS mini series was a reprint of that Gamestop freebie comic that was given out for preordering the videogame. Same creative team and all that. However, that issue did not feature Major Bludd and the Operation HISS mini series does introduce that character. Plus the story seemed to be wrapped up in that same freebie comic. All I know for sure is that we could use some more information on that Operation HISS series. I did not order the first issue because I am thinking it is a reprint of that Gamestop comic and why pay for another version of what I got for free? I wish Chris Ryall or somebody would varify some things about it, but I think they might not want to deny themselves a few extra copies moved to those that find out it is a reprint. Not saying that Operation HISS #1 IS a reprint, but it looks and sounds like it is to me.

Glad to help. :lol: :lol: All I do know for a fact is it is a mini series that continues the movieverse Joe comics. That and Major Bludd appears in it. I don't even know how many issues it is. Issue #1 ships in February.

G.I. JOE: Operation H.I.S.S. Comic Launches in February
Tuesday, Dec 22nd, 2009


This February, IDW explores what follows the dramatic ending of this summer's smash-hit movie, G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra. Under license by Hasbro, Inc., G.I. JOE: Operation H.I.S.S. focuses on two of the brand's main characters, SCARLETT and SNAKE EYES, as they combat the latest plot of the evil and menacing COBRA organization.

The war against COBRA has only just begun as writer Brian Reed (G.I. JOE Special: Agent Helix) unveils the return of the wildly popular STORM SHADOW character and introduces a sinister new character, brought to life by the dynamic art team of Augustin Padilla and Alex Cal, from the popular G.I. JOE: Origins series. G.I. JOE: Operation H.I.S.S., a five-part miniseries, draws readers into a world of danger that threatens to corrupt the heroic G.I. JOE team member, DUKE. Joe Corroney (Star Trek: Mirror Images) provides the variant covers to the hottest title yet to spin out of G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra.

"The G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra publishing program has been one avenue of support for the film's storyline-until now. With Operation H.I.S.S., we chart new territory and are adding to the strong mythology developed for the film," said Andy Schmidt, IDW's G.I. JOE editor. "This series is not about filling in holes and tying up loose ends, it's about big, over-the-top action while emphasizing what makes these characters great."

In this latest G.I. JOE adventure, DUKE goes undercover to infiltrate COBRA and encounters MAJOR BLUDD, who makes his first appearance in IDW's comics.


G.I. JOE: Operation H.I.S.S. #1 (of 5) ($3.99, 32 pages) debuts in February. Diamond order code: DEC09 0888

Okay, now that clears it up. Since it's a movie-verse title, I will hedge my bets as to whether it will see the inside of my pull file.

Back to the original topic of this thread, as Cash pointed out, Brooks is a successful, best selling author and so you would think that IDW would
be hyping his upcoming Joe work. Since all we can seem to find regarding this is the sound of crickets, I would lean more towards the notion that there is no info because there is no work. I was excited for this as well; WWZ is a new classic to me; so I am disappointed to now believe this will never see the harsh light of a comic rack.

I'm hopng someone from IDW --HINT! HINT!-- would read this thread and fill us in on the latest info. Or non-info, as it were. Please do not just let this be a "Whatever happened to..." mystery. If it is cancelled or seriously delayed, please tell the fans now, instead of letting wild speculation run rampant.
