Chris - I have been wondering about this and maybe you can help me out.

Why has IDW dropped 'A Real American Hero' from the GI JOE logo in the reboot comic covers?

I'm guesting on a comics podcast this week where we'll be discussing GI Joe in general, including the IDW reboot, and I'd like to be able to accurately explain why 'A Real American Hero' was dropped.

Thanks in advance!

There's really no answer here, because we never dropped it. We never used it. Hasbro wanted the comics called G.I. JOE, so that's what the main title is called. Any subtitle there could've been more confusing with our other subtitles, Origins and Cobra and others to come. Nothing more to it than that.

Love to get a link to the podcast after it's done so I can see what you think of things so far.

I'll make sure to get you a link once it's up. Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. I had thought it might have something do with Hasbro (much like the Dial Tone thing) but just wanted to make sure and clarify before it got discussed.

Have a great Sunday!
