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 […]

Drones #1 Review

With a title such as Drone #1‘s, it can be very easy to think of it as a purely military, patriotic spy-fest. However, Drone #1 adds just enough surprises into the mix to give it a whole different angle. The official description from IDW: Two former predator drone operators face insurgency and insanity on the […]

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 […]

Dead Squad #5 Review

Dead Squad #5 is the end of the opening ‘origins’ arc, although it instantly teases the next comic so it’s certainly confident in itself, but is that justified? And more importantly, is it earned from the readers? The official description from IDW: It’s a battle on the high seas as Blake, Hooper, and Vargas confront […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dead Squad #3 Review

Dead Squad #3 has its share of niggling bumps, but it’s not strictly a bad wide. You can forgive a few faults if its still fun and, although it does dance on the line, it might still be doing okay. The official description from IDW: The Dead Squad has thirteen hours to live and only […]

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: […]

Dead Squad #2 Review

Dead Squad #2 presents readers with an interesting concept. If done well, it could be a strong, thoughtful read that questions the matters of life and death.

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?
