My mouth dropped a bit in reading the most recent issue of GI Joe so I thought I'd share with you 4 pages from that issue, and 7 from the preceding one.

That cover is funny, it's symbolic nothing even close to that happens, but it's funny.

Following their failed and disastrous attempt to take the Pit, Cobra is slithering underground, the Crimson Guards are resuming their original mission of infiltrating American life and manipulating the system from the inside... but before Cobra Commander switches to stealthier tactics there's a loose end to take care of. A loose end named Destro.

The bad guy trinity of Cobra, Zartan, and Destro are about to have it out. )

Wednesday is here! Which means GI Joe A Real American Hero 191 is out! Which means I can tell you all about the awesomeness of GI Joe 190 for my first ever post in this community. Aren't you all excited, I know I am!

Eep! It's one of my three favorite Joes*, Lady Jaye about to be plugged by Major Bludd. Say it ain't so.

*For the record the other two are Storm Shadow and General Hawk.

It's so )

I met Larry Hama unexpectedly a few weeks ago, since he had a table at the Emerald City Comicon that I didn't know about before buying my ticket, and since then I've had his old '80s G.I. Joe comics on my mind. It doesn't hurt that Retaliation finally came out, either.

Special Missions was a relatively short-lived spin-off book that was a series of what were usually done-in-ones, involving particularly dicey or complicated missions by the team that did not necessarily involve Cobra.

This is a story from its second issue about refugee Nazis, Israeli Nazi hunters, and the Holocaust. This might be the kind of thing that mandates a trigger warning.

In Larry Hama's G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #161, the Joes must interrogate Storm Shadow to make sure he's not a double agent. But that's easier said than done when your interrogatee is a ninja.

Greetings True Believers!

Here is my entry for Day 6 of 30 Days of Winter. This might be the greatest G.I. Joe story ever told.

The flow of it is wonderful and Snake-Eyes and Scarlett are unstoppable bad-asses in it and it's the first ever appearance of Storm Shadow. Larry Hama was born to write G.I. Joe.

Enjoy G.I. Joe #21, "Silent Interlude".

And now for something completely different.

It's 1997. Foggy Nelson discovered that Matt is Daredevil. As part of making up for the years of lies, Matt joins Foggy in partnering with a vicious attorney named Rosalyn Sharpe (who is also Foggy's bio-mother).

Venom: On Trial! This miniseries is kind of a sequel to the Spider-man Special Edition: Venom on Trial. If you read the review of that one-shot, you'd know Matt Murdock was eager to defend Venom and even asked Spider-man to show as a witness, successfully getting him acquitted. However, Spider-man punched Venom and spoiled his plan by revealing that the symbiote was still part of his body. When Murdock refused to handle the civil lawsuit Venom wanted to bring against Spider-man, Venom fired him.

Guess who got caught again? Read more... )

So the Joes are in South America to do something involving a coup. This being G.I. Joe, Cobra, Destro, a fruit company cartel, and other sinister forces are at work. But in the midst of all that, our boys pay a visit to the embassy.

For Free Comic Book Day, IDW released G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #155 1/2, a prologue of sorts to the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero series proper, whose first issue will be #156. The series is in the same vein as Marvel's recent "Forever" books, in that it's Larry Hama continuing where he left off all those years ago, as if the intervening comics never happened.

Eight* pages under the cut...

*I'm assuming the rules for Free Comic Book Day comics this year are the same as last year's.

Like most comics in the 90s, G.I. Joe got bad. How bad? Well, let's take a look at a random cover.

That bad. The Law of Conservation of Ninjitsu clearly states that the fewer ninjas you have, the more badass they are. There's just something cool about an army that just happens to have a ninja on their side. But when the ninjas get their own department and their own stationary and they start taking ninja smoke breaks, propping the door open so their smoke bombs don't cloud up the whole office, it's just a little silly. Here's some more bad things that happened in the 90s.

With ninjas. )

When it comes to titles hit hard by the 90s, G.I. Joe is right up there. You see... wait, that guy looks kinda familiar.

Can Cobrapool be far behind? Find out! )
