NYCC 2017: G.I. Joe and the Six Million Dollar Man crossing over

Dynamite Comics and IDW are crossing over with each other. The Six Million Dollar Man, Steve Austin, is set to clash with G.I. Joe’s Snake Eyes and co.

Yo Joe!

Inter-company crossovers are always a fun time, and this one is pretty unique, as they go. IDW’s G.I. Joe is about to meet Dynamite Comics’ Six Million Dollar Man.

The upcoming 4-part series will be brought to fans by Ryan Ferrier and artist SL Gallant. While Ferrier is a relatively new talent, Joe fans should recognize Gallant’s name. He’s worked on the military property before, alongside legendary Joe scribe Larry Hama.

Look for covers from the likes of John Cassaday, Ken Lashley, and Mike Zeck when the first issue lands at stores this January.

Here’s more about the new mini, from the teams involved.

“To say Shannon and I are having fun with bringing these two iconic properties together would be a massive understatement,” said Ferrier. “We are going full-tilt and no-holds-barred with this story. 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.”

“Ryan and Shannon have found the perfect story to tell,” said IDW’s Editor in Chief, David Hedgecock. “Fans both new and old are going to be amazed at what this creative team is putting together. This series beautifully blends all the classic tropes of the characters while simultaneously creating something exciting and fresh. We are thrilled to be working with this team and with the fine folks at Dynamite to bring this series to the fans.”

“G.I. JOE and Steve Austin, The Six Million Dollar Man, are two pop culture mainstays who have influenced the comics industry for years,” said Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “We’ve had great runs with our Six Million Dollar Man series, and long been admirers of IDW’s ongoing G.I. JOE series. Now is the time for these two to cross-over and we couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating on this event series, and working with our good friends at IDW.”
