Yeah, we all saw the 3-minute Operation: HISS animation that was…well… not so great. Obviously somewhat chopped together on a low budget and made for the lowest common denominator, there wasn’t really much to write home about.
The Operation: HISS comic from IDW, on the other hand…that’s definitely showing some promise. While it didn’t get rave reviews from IGN, the reviewers from HissTank and The Terror Drome both saw something to look forward to, and the image of the variant cover to issue #2 is absolutely kicking my ass. Major Bludd in reactive armor? Sweetness. Love the repurposed NATO armored vehicles as Cobra tanks is great, too.
So for folks out there who are interested in reading a bit more about the Rise of Cobra universe (like me) this is a nice surprise. Click the links below to check out the reviews:
