GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe: Real American Hero #174

I find myself looking forward to the Real American Hero title every month, but this week…wow.  Seems like we got some IDW G.I. Joe overload.  I really found myself loving the issues dealing with the modern style of IDW G.I. Joe comics this week, so suddenly being thrust back into the old school Marvel Universe was a bit jarring, but still a lot of fun.

We get a lot more tank action, some more convoluted military stylings, and a whole lotta Larry Hama goodness.

GeneralsJoes Reviews IDW’s G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes #9

I had to smile when I saw the cover to this issue, featuring a jungle camouflaged version of the Cobra Deviant Mech barreling through the jungle, facing off against Snake Eyes.  I can’t really explain it, but for some reason when I see my toys in movies, cartoons, or comic books, I absolutely love it, and I really dig seeing the Cobra mech’s being used in the IDW universe.

Part of me does wish they stuck with the original paint scheme, but that red and black would have stood out quite a bit in the jungle foilage.

GeneralsJoes Reviews IDW’s G.I. Joe: Cobra Annual 2012

Many of us really saw it coming throughout the Cobra Civil War that Krake was destined to be the new Cobra Commander, but I still thought it was a very fun ride getting to the end result. But I think most folks were complaining a bit that we didn’t really know Krake’s history and what makes him tick.

No longer. The entirety of the 2012 G.I. Joe: Cobra annual is devoted to the backstory of Cobra agent Krake and how he becomes who he is. I was approaching the issue with some hesitation, just because I wasn’t entirely sure how much I cared. Turns out I did care.

Channing Tatum talks G.I. Joe: Retaliation…it’s not a CGI fest

With Haywire hitting theaters shortly, Channing Tatum has been hitting the press junket, and he spoke with Frosty at Collider about not just Haywire, but they also touched a bit on G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  According to Tatum, there will be less “laser guns” and much more “boots on the ground”.  Good news.
