We do know that The Loyal Subjects (of which are big fans) has their Joe line due out this year, and I am super excited about that.

There is also Kindle worlds stories to continue reading about your favorite Joes, written by fans, for fans. I named dropped Troy Osgood, but there are several high quality writers from Jim Beard’s Adventure team centric work, Justin Bell’s welcome to wolf squad, or the prequals to his dios, or Bill Nedrow, Don Mau’s tales of castle Destro are being moved there, and there is plenty more.

We do actually have t-shirts including the “Average Joe” shirt in a couple of variations, you can use the drop down menu above to check it out.

Additional show notes, links and images to be added (again) tomorrow (3/23/16) I wanted to get this out there so that you get to hear more about the petition and so you can help get the word out by SHARING!

Nerdversity interviw with Dan Klingensmith author of 3.75 Joe featuring Gary from WOJM

3.75bookcoverSam (rev) Sears (myself) hosts this interview with Dan Klingensmith author of the upcoming book 3.75 ” Joe that delves into the origins of the 80’s and early 90’s big toyline, from it’s origins, designs, the creators stories, to unused concepts. Sam is joined by hosts Alex “Jaxs”, new comer Nate Blaine, and we were blessed to have What’s on Joe Mind Host Gary Godsoe as a host this episode as well.

You can Listen to it embedded below or on Stitcher  HERE or Itunes key word nerdversity101 (note there were some technical issues that delayed this podcast being up, there is more info below)

We discuss Dan’s interest in the brand and segway to his book. We discuss the Flagg’s Origins, an alternate take on the B.A.T. (Battle Android Trooper) as well as an interesting early spin on Major Bludd and more. We then discuss the current state of the G.I.Joe brand and our hopes for the future.

This episode was plagued with issues. It was recorded prior to the Buzz Dixon interview but the data, after editing, become corrupted and i had to re edit the podcast, and even during the podcast, Nate Blaine lost service, my computer over heated which caused some confusion. We will try have Dan on again the in the future to make up for it but Gary and Alex really kept things going and I really thank them for it!

If you want to hear more from Dan @ his facebook page for his book and this group for his podcast covering behind the scenes of the toyline with the creators themselves. His old page also has a great set of pics as well
