There comes a book once in a blue moon that will make you shed a tear or two and GI Joe A Real American Hero #214 did just that. This is the conclusion of the Death of Snake Eyes and IDW along with Larry Hama and artist SL Gallant delivered a fitting conclusion to a major story arc in the history of GI Joe.
I know many, including myself really enjoy seeing action figure covers and toy covers in general for comics. IDW has already treated us to both GI Joe and Transformer toy covers and now we will have an action figure cover! Robert Atkins is teaming up with IDW to produce an exciting carded figure variant cover for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #215!
After my review of the first issue, I was really eager to read the second issue of Jem and the Holograms. What's best is that not only wasn't I disappointed, I enjoyed it better than the first, and there's not many comic book series that I can say that about. I'm just really happy that this comic exists.
This comic keeps moving across my desk, begging to be re-read and reviewed. Maybe it's the more animated-style artwork by Elsa Charretier (more on her Friday) that reminds me of Darwyn Cooke, and maybe it's that I'm a sucker for time travel stories, although I tend to be harsher in my assessment of them. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a good read.
GI Joe ARAH continues in to shine in issue #213. Serpentor is back and the death of Snake Eyes continues. Folks I just read this issue and I am flabbergasted. This is a must read and yes, no spoilers will be revealed. Check out the preview below and make sure you snag a copy tomorrow Yo Joe.
IDW will be offering an exclusive GI. Joe ARAH #212 at this years GI Joe Convention and it looks awesome!! Make sure you pick up your Exclusive Jem & Holograms & GI Joe Dreadnoks Cover at the show. This looks to be brought to us from Plastic Empire and no word if IDW will actually be at the show. Check out the cover below and and go Cold Slither!!
IDW has had a lot of press behind the launch of their new Jem & the Holograms series, so it seems only right to give it a read and tell you about it. I was personally looking forward to it given that I'm prone to like old ideas given a new spin, and for the most part it works. I'm going to give you a spoiler alert, but I'll still try not to ruin it for anyone.
This just hit my newsfeed for Twitter and this is a must see. If you're a fan of IDW's GI Joe A Real American Hero then you will want to snag this copy. As most of you know, IDW only released a handful of covers for ARAH through their solicitations and we are just now seeing some of the upcoming variants. This issue will be huge as Snake Eyes will be "dying". Thanks to Antonio Fuso’s Twitter account, we can now get a look at one of the covers IDW has held back. Antonio Fuso has is no stranger to GI Joe comics as he worked on the fan favorite Cobra and Cobra Files from IDW. This upcoming run from IDW is sure to change many things for both the GI Joe team and us readers. Look for this issue to hit in May.
This, besides Star Wars, will be a must read folks. IDW has done an excellent job with the GI Joe property and I am intrigued on how this one is going to play out. Look for it on the 21st! DESTRO, one of COBRA’s top operatives, has been captured. As the metal masked maverick gets transferred to a new prison, a prison break is instigated by none other than… SNAKE EYES! The brand new series debuts on the 21st! SUB Covers by Drew Johnson
IDW has released a press release concerning a new Jem and The Holograms comic series. I am sure many of you (including myself) caught an episode or two back in the 80's so these gals need no introduction. Read on for the press release and lets get ready to get outrageous!
This book has been interesting to say the least. I know many were put off by the art but I sure do like it. The art has the "old" time feel to it and I do encourage anyone who likes these properties to check it out. This issue is hitting today so make sure you add it to your stack! Check out the preview below and happy reading!
