Roger & Josh are following the path of many G.I. Joe fans by converting their passion for G.I. Joe into a book. That path is very common: create book idea, use Kickstarter to get funding, make book, finish book, release book. Then repeat for the next volume. They are now starting as of May 19th the Kickstarter for Volume #2.
