G.I. Joe: Origins #2 5-Page preview

ComicContinuum.com has posted a five-page preview to the upcoming second issue of G.I. Joe: Origins, slated to hit stands next Wednesday.  This issue appears to pick up right where issue #1 left off, digging a bit more into Snake Eyes’ past, but also uncovering a bit more about the mysterious Chimera as well.

Rise of COBRA movie banners on eBay now

Possibly from the screening event in Australia, eBay seller eyesonthesky2005 has posted auctions for banners featuring The Rise of COBRA Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.  The two banners take imagery from the posters we’ve already seen, but instead are printed on oversized banners, perfect for hanging in your “mancave”.

Thanks to HissCommander from The Terror Drome for the information, and check out the two images below.

G.I. Joe Comic Book geared for kids coming from IDW

Full details of this awesome looking upcoming book can be found at Chris Ryall’s “Ryalltime” blog, and I also slapped up a gallery of some of the images below.  This looks like a whole lot of fun!  My three-year old already runs around the house yelling “COBRA!” so this will be the next obvious step in the evolutionary chain.

Reviews start cropping up for G.I. Joe: COBRA #1

Joe #3).  Anyway, until I get mine up, check out some others around the web:
