8 issues in and the new ‘series 4’ is already over. G.I Joe #8 marks the last of the current storyline and title so, while it is abrupt, how does the end result look? First, the official description from IDW: The war of intel and secrets reaches dangerous new heights as Scarlet’s G.I. Joe team […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #213 Review

Despite the stupidity and sillyness of G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #213 and its current plot, it’s hard not to feel impressed in some way. As far as all out action, suspense and drama goes, this issue definately pays off and – for that – it’s hard not to like it. The official description […]

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #4 Review

Well, it’s only a 5-part series, so G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #4 is the penultimate issue, rife with plot set-ups and final confrontations. Still, based on its charm and atsmophere, it might just be the best issue so far. The official description from IDW: SNAKE EYES’ mission for COBRA has been severely […]

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes Agent of Cobra #3 Review

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #3 marks the middle point in the mini series and, well, so far it’s good. That said, this issue raises a lot of issues about the G.I Joe storyline itself. If there’s this kind of potential there, why was it simply dropped to begin with? The official description […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #211 Review

You know, for a series that’s had its share of ninjas, gadgets and robot super soliders, its hard to imagine something like G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #211 being any more silly/bold (delete as appropriate) with its sense of scale. Well, that might be changing… The official description from IDW: THE RETURN OF SERPENTOR! […]

G.I Joe #6 Review

For a title that has defined itself in a much more grounded, realistic approach, G.I Joe #6 demonstrates many of the benefits and drawbacks of such an approach. The more realistic tone makes the title easier to follow, but does it lose a little of what makes it G.I Joe in the first place? The […]

Transformers vs G.I Joe #5 Review

For a series that dances with issues of clarity and simplicty, Transformers vs G.I Joe #5 pushes the envelope a little too far. Nobody can say these issues don’t pack plenty of action, but the coherency of said action often seems to be the collateral damage in the process. First, the official description from IDW: […]

G.I Joe #5 Review

G.I Joe #5 marks a strong problem with the current set-up. I’m enjoying every issue, but it seems to be going nowhere fast. Much is spoken about, but little seems to happen. Still, there’s something in it that seems to keep me reading for the mean time. The official description from IDW: FALL OF G.I. […]

G.I JOE: SNAKE EYES: AGENT OF COBRA #1 Review

IDW’s G.I Joe universe has been a bit slow of late, but G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #1 is the kick start it needs. This mini-series could be a title that focuses on the espionage, stealth and political aspects of the series without overdoing it. For a first issue, there’s plenty of potential […]

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #209 Review

For a series that often struggles to flip between reality and aloof, over-the-top fun, G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #209 really knows how to tow the line. For every serious threat it tries to present with one hand, it teases some ridiculous notion with the other The official description from IDW: The secrets and […]

G.I Joe #3 Review

The third issue in, G.I Joe #3 is an important issue. I want to love this series and, while I do like it, it needs to that little more to feel like a true G.I Joe title. So why do I still feel dissapointed? The official description from IDW: THE FALL OF G.I. JOE continues…and […]

Transformers vs G.I Joe #4 Review

With a series like this, what else is there to say? Each issue gets more and more jam-packed and Transformers vs G.I Joe #4 is no exception. I’ve read it more than a couple of times now, just to try and take everything in. Not that that’s strictly a good thing, mind you… The official […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #208 Review

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #208 is currently taking place in Dublin, but in the end it’s all robots, ninjas and guns, isn’t it? I’m not saying this is a bad thing, but a long running title like this needs to mix it up once in a little while. The official description from IDW: […]

G.I Joe #2 Review

After my previous views on the first issue, G.I Joe #2 needs to feel a lot more, well, G.I Joe. Less dialogue, less politics and more action. Isn’t that what this series is all about? The official description from IDW: THE FALL OF G.I. JOE! Scarlett’s last chance to save the G.I. JOE team’s existence […]
