Bullet points:

  • The artist of the smash hit COBRA COMMAND is back!
  • A pivotal moment that defines the future of G.I. JOE!
  • The Other Guy

    The art is terrible, the characters don’t make any sense and nothing seems like G.I. Joe at all. It’s just someone’e shelved action title that they changed certain aspects of and called it G.I. Joe. Without names I wouldn’t be able to recognize anybody. And like we’ve been saying, Chuck is just going to have the nerd (Mainframe) who has nothing in common with the female (Scarlett), somehow get the girl just because he saved her life.
    Even if he does get Scarlett and Snake Eyes together… it still won’t be believable. Snake Eyes did nothing but team-up with the blonde Mary Sue half the time, he left Scarlett two times to be with his Ninja friends, Scarlett was behind a desk having to put up the asshole Duke and the stalker Mainframe…
