Sideshow Collectibles Presents… ZARTAN.

So I spent the last 24 hours salivating over a Sideshow Collectibles product (the Cobra Viper) and the fact that Zartan was going to make a re-appearance in G.I. Joe: Renegades.  Come in from snowblowing tonight, and all of a sudden it all comes crashing together!

Sideshow has released a “Production Peek” which just happens to feature a look at our favorite Master of Disguise.  And it’s a hell of a look.

If that ain’t about the coolest thing…  very reminiscent of the classic Zartan, but even more angular and updated.  This could be another winner.

GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe: The Pursuit of Cobra Black H.I.S.S.

Well, it’s kind of a review.  Since there wasn’t much that changed (other than the color) I didn’t necessarily go real deep into it, but I did talk about some of the differences of the two and of course included a bunch of pictures.

Zartan returns to G.I. Joe: Renegades on March 18th

Everyone set your DVR’s!

By and large, many folks have been complaining about Zartan’s first appearance in the G.I. Joe: Renegades universe…but it looks like the Renegades writers are looking to make it right, with Episode 14 – “Knock Offs”.  According to TVGuide.com, the infamous Cobra Master of Disguise may finally get a recognizable look:

“Lady Jaye and Flint use Zartan to track the Joes. Meanwhile, the Baroness tries to sneak a camouflage suit to Cobra”

Excellent.  According to Zartan’s official bio, he steals the camouflage suit, and something tells me, he will end up looking a lot more like the Zartan we know and love.  Can’t wait.

GeneralsJoes Reviews IDW’s G.I. Joe #27

So last month when I reviewed Issue #26, I praised the art and the overall story, but was disappointed that this particular story was put where it was.  A cool and fun tale, but it didn’t serve well as the culminating issue of a two-year long story arc.

I agreed to give Dixon one more chance to surprise me, and with Issue #27 hitting this week, it’s time to say whether he pulled it off.
