En octobre, le scénariste Larry Hama lancera l’évènement hebdomadaire The Cobra World Order (littéralement, l’Ordre Mondial de Cobra) au sein de la série G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero à partir du 219ème numéro.
Cette saga en huit chapitres verra le groupuscule terroriste Cobra, dirigé par Destro et Zardan, contre-attaquer violemment l’institution des Joes grâce à un plan secret préparé de longue date.
Si S.L. Gallant dessine l’intégrale de l’histoire, chaque couverture sera illustrée par un artiste différent (notamment Paul Pope, Francesco Francavilla, Phil Jimenez et Stephen Mooney).

The COBRA WORLD ORDER
Starts This October For
G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero
The Master Plan Is Set
San Diego, CA (July 11, 2015) – This October, it’s zero hour for A Real American Hero! G.I. JOE has been fighting the evil forces of COBRA for decades, but now COBRA is ready to unleash its master plan on an unsuspecting G.I. JOE!
Written by the man who started it all, G.I. JOE comics legend Larry Hama, this table-setter leads into a mammoth 8-part bi-weekly event, kicking off with G.I. JOE: ARAH #219 and #220! Art duties for this arc will be in the very capable hands of S.L. Gallant who has become a fan-favorite for his attention to detail and accurate portrayals of classic G.I. JOE vehicles and characters.
“What we have seen of Cobra’s plans in G.I. JOE: ARAH to date is just the tip of the iceberg,” said series writer, Hama. “Other players in the Cobra periphery—like Destro and Zartan—are making their moves so as to be in on whatever benefits accrue from Cobra Commander’s master plot. Meanwhile, Hawk leads an international team around the globe to uncover the details of this sinister conspiracy.”
The Prelude issue will boast covers by some of the hottest artists working in the industry today; with Paul Pope leading the charge on the standard cover and variant covers by Francesco Francavilla and Phil Jimenez. And it doesn’t end there; this issue is also part of IDW’s celebrated Artist’s Edition Month with a variant by Stephen Mooney as well as a Blank Sketch variant.[/quote]
