G.I. Joe: Retaliation prequel comic preview online at Comics Alliance

If you’re anything like me, you’re absolutely dying for G.I. Joe: Retaliation news or info.  Well, next week we should be getting our first look at the G.I. Joe: Retaliation universe courtesy of IDW’s prequel series, which hits comic stores on Wednesday.

If you’re impatient like I am, good news!  Comics Alliance has posted the five-page preview to the series, which catapults you right into a air battle between G.I. Joe and the Red Ninjas!  This initial adventure apparently takes place “several years ago…”  I do sincerely hope the entire 4-issue limited series doesn’t take place “several years ago” because I was hoping for some bridging between Rise of Cobra and Retaliation.  I guess time will tell.

I won’t mirror all the images here, instead you should hit up Comics Alliance for the awesome preview, and be sure to get to your local comic store on Wednesday to buy the full issue and start your G.I. Joe: Retaliation adventures!

    Retaliation was so fast-tracked…makes one wonder how much actual info was available to write this comic. they mayve been told to make it ”several years ago” as to not interfere with what mayve been a somewhat liquid storyline for the movie…but still establish some core details about roadblock.
    that same fast-track makes me wonder too about some of the lacking designs for the toys. easier production with quicker turnaround time vs. using existing parts over and over.

    oh, and roadblock’s line ”leave em alone!”—a woman with a sword protruding between her breasts another joe stabbed in the back—thats some primo dialogue there…..what a badass.

    How the heck do you go down from a handful of shuriken getting stuck in your body armour?

    A rushed storyline that has nothing but idiotic action
