Excellent interview of IDW Editor John Barber on ComixVerse.com

The folks behind The Comix Verse are friends of the site and are making a push to bring their network of sites into the mainstream…doing a great job of it, too.  They’ve posted a very good and enlightening interview with IDW editor John Barber, who is one of the guys editing the G.I. Joe stable of titles, and also the writer of the impressive G.I. Joe: Retaliation Prequel limited series.  He lets loose some insight about what might be coming after Cobra Command, and the interview even showcases some nice preview pages!

Check it out right here.  Good stuff, and thanks to The Terror Drome for the heads up.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Ninja Showdown Snake Eyes – FIRST LOOK!

Well, here it is…the last of my “First Looks”…  I am officially sad.  My experience with this sampling of figures has been very enlightening, and I really want to thank Gyre Vipre for giving me the opportunity to reveal these figures.

There’s been a lot of great stuff (Red Ninja, Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes, most of Roadblock) but also some concerns as well, and I think this is likely indicative of the Retaliation line itself.  Lots of ninja elements, but some very cool modern military elements, too, and I look forward to both.

Bring on May, and bring on a full blown G.I. Joe: Retaliation toy onslaught.  I’m ready!

Until then, check out my G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review Page, or just click the link below for the last installment in my weeklong “First Look” segment.  I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.
