from Steel City Publishers:

Steel City Publishing LLC would like to announce the Fall 2014 release of: “3.75 Inch Joe: Inside the Minds of the Creators 1982-1994”

G.I.Joe* is one of the most recognizable and well known action figure lines in history, yet there is no full story showing the creation process of the G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero brand that ran from 1982-1994.
Well that’s about to change with the release of “3.75 Inch Joe: Inside the Minds of the Creators 1982-1994″ !!
Although there have been many books written about G.I.Joe, what makes “3.75 Inch Joe: Inside the Minds of the Creators 1982-1994” unique is the fact that the information shared within the book comes from exclusive interviews with former employees who worked on the G.I.Joe Brand. Some of the things to expect include:

• The inspiration and influences behind the different figures and vehicles
• Alternate names for figures and vehicles
• Insider stories regarding the changes that occurred during the design process
• Conceptual designs and photographs that will show the progression and different stages of creating a figure or vehicle
• And much more…

This book will have a limited run and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a Non-Profit Organization. The expected release date will be Fall 2014! More information will come in the near future regarding the size of the book and what it will cost. I appreciate everyone’s continued support and patience over the last few years!
Thank you
