I just received the following email from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club:

Five Page previews posted for Hearts and Minds #4 and RAH #158

Last week was a down week for G.I. Joe comics from IDW, without a single title getting released, however they’re making up for it this week by releasing two books in one week.  Wednesday will see the release of G.I. Joe: Hearts and Minds #4 (featuring Dr. Mindbender and Doc) as well as G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #158.  Check out the synopsis and 5-Page previews below.

You know, I’m still not sure about that Jungle Viper, but…

I’m starting to get sold.  Just a little.

I haven’t been wild about the Jungle Viper since day one, simply because he’s got so much gear, he seems like he might lack some playability.  But the more I see about him, the more I’m getting converted.  A fan of the site Jack Sparrow only further fanned the flames by sending along some great pictures of Jungle Viper “in the wild”.  This figure is looking cooler and cooler.  We’ll see what I think once I get him in hand.  Check out the images below.
