GI Joe 50th Anniversary Panel
Being the 50th anniversary of GI Joe, I thought I would contribute a little something to the informal fan celebrations that have been happening this year. To that end, I’ve recruited a valiant Midwestern special mission force. Its purpose: to pay tribute to the world’s first action figure as well as the brand we all love.
Twitziller, Brian of Codename: Iowa, and I will be presenting a 50th Anniversary of GI Joe panel at this year’s Planet Comicon in Kansas City, MO on Sunday, March 16th. We’ll present a whirlwind overview of Joe’s history, from 1964 to the present. We also will cover the brand’s current fandom, including online resources and fan projects, and discuss where we think GI Joe will go from here. Be on the lookout for more coverage of the event right here, and for more information on the convention, check out PlanetComicon.com. Yo Joe!
