"G.I. Joe: Special Missions" writer Chuck Dixon discusses the re-launch of the classic title with artist Paul Gulacy, sharing his thoughts on Joe fans in the military, the live-action films and more.

IDW Publishing's re-launch of the G.I Joe universe continues this March with the debut of "G.I. Joe: Special Missions" by writer Chuck Dixon and artist Paul Gulacy. "Special Missions" finds the Joe team evolving into a leaner, meaner military strike squad led by fan-favorite character Scarlett. The title, "Special Missions," is a deliberate tribute to Larry Hama's Marvel Comics book of the same name from the mid-'80s.

Joe" title for several years, right up to this year's franchise re-launch helmed by writer Fred Van Lente.
