In the same vein as Marvel's X-Men Forever and X-Factor Forever, IDW is going to put out a G.I. Joe series by Larry Hama that continues right off from his last issue, as if none of the comics since then have happened.

Newsarama has a preview up of the first isssue, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #155 1/2, here.

Nope, no political insinuations here, nosiree. )

Last time, there was mention I'd be including the worst Amalgam issue. This is NOT that issue.

Instead, we combine the tragedy and horror of the transformation of Dr. Kirk Langstrom aka Man-Bat and the bizarre and magical ascension of the Man-Thing to get...

Say you're Cobra Commander. You want to take over the world. Inevitably, you're going to recruit some odd characters to help you do it. But after a while, it must get to you sharing an office with guys who dress like this. But if metal suspenders, a codpiece, thigh-high boots, and a hairstyle that went out of fashion in WW1 aren't enough to make you snap, what can?

Behold, the straw that broke the camel's back! )

I've heard of villains so evil that they cheat at solitaire, but a villain so evil he mocks his underlings' poetry? Daymn.

So waaay back in GI Joe 21, after the title's first big story arc, there were a series of "cooldown" issues before the story got underway again. One of them was completely free of dialogue, which is interesting for a comic in the 80s based on children's toys. The story goes like this: Scarlett has been captured by Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes goes in to rescue her. Hey, you see how complex you can make a plot without having any dialogue.

So we pick up in Destro's castle, where Scarlett has already started her own damn escape while Snake Eyes is infiltrating. Then, some of Storm Shadow's ninjas confront everyone's favorite mute, scarred ninja.

Fight! )

Issue #7 awaits below the cut. The Joe team commits their very first war crime!

Not their last, though.

Anyway, once again, for those who've never read them, the GI Joe cartoon has the same relationship to the comic book that the Left Behind books have to the Bible. What I mean to say is, screw the cartoon.

Everybody loves Snake Eyes and it's pretty easy to see why just from the early days of the comic, when I think he just wears sunglasses and a ski mask. While it's hard to tell Breaker from Stalker, Snake Eyes sets himself apart with horrific scars, no dialogue, and a certain mystique that comes from never saying how badass you are when other people can do it for you.



Another, larger example under the cut. )

"...my tank would disappear. And Staten Island. And, my tank."

Hello and welcome back to the ongoing attempt to integrate Cold War kid's propaganda into the post 9/11 liberal mindset. It's probably impossible.

But by maintaining the tension of this intellectual paradox, we are proving Ayn Rand entirely wrong*, so it's worth it.

GI Joe, issues two and three.

This is a repost from the original s_d. It was written when Bush was president, and things have changed. Moreover, it had remarkably interesting comment threads, so I've changed my mind a lot based on new evidence and analysis. So it's edited, and we can go from here. Call this version 2.0.

I read all the old GI Joe comics. All of them. Thank you internet! One hundred and fifty-five issues, plus 26 of Special Missions, 13 of European Missions, 4 of GI Joe and Transformers, and a bunch of other stuff here and there. They were great.

I consider myself a liberal activist. You can dispute my effectiveness, whatever, the point is that's the way I see the world. I try to work on liberal causes and help make them happen, I go to protests and stuff, I work tables and sit in trees and so on and so forth.

I love GI Joe comics. I always have, ever since I was a kid and they were new and I owned half the toys.

I oppose military adventurism in all the forms that I can. I think America should get out of Iraq tomorrow. I protested the bombing of Iraq when Clinton did it! I think Bush should be tried for war crimes.

But I do love G I Joe comics.

Because they're that damn good.

In this post I discuss issue #1. Note to new readers: GI Joe comics have NOTHING to do with the cartoon. There are characters in common but the structure, goal, and tone are entirely different.
