By Brian Jacks


Devil's Due and Image Comics have announced the addition of more than a few notable names as contributors to G.I. JOE, G.I. JOE: FRONTLINE and the upcoming G.I. JOE VS. TRANSFORMERS crossover.

Leading the pack is veteran comic book superstar Mike Zeck, well known for the covers he contributed to the original G.I. JOE comic book series in the '80s. Zeck will be pencilling the interiors for an all-new silent issue featuring the most popular G.I. JOE characters, Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow. This marks Zeck’s long-awaited return to sequential illustration and his first ever full-length G.I. JOE story.
