Everyone seems pretty vocal about the upcoming G.I. Joe main series revamp in March, but I haven’t heard a whole lot about what people are looking forward to with the Special Missions title. Comic Book Resources spoke with writer Chuck Dixon about the series, which looks to be pretty heavily infused with the realistic, gritty military action that many of us adult Joe fans are into.
With art by Paul Gulacy, and a team featuring stalwarts like Scarlett, Recondo, Beachhead, Mainframe, Ripcord, and Torpedo, Special Missions is a more down and dirty look at the underbelly of G.I. Joe’s military operations across the world.
The article showcases some great preview pages along with the interview, check it out at Comic Book Resources. Thanks to Kord on Twitter for the heads up.
For folks like friend of the site Arune Singh, who longs for a shirtless Lee Byung-Hun, this 12″ representation of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Storm Shadow looks like he might be just what the doctor ordered. A promotional image circulating features a decent up close look of the upcoming Cobra Ninja, and it looks awesome.
Folks who like the movie appearance of Storm Shadow (and yes, I am one of them) this figure looks very, very cool. You can almost feel the depth and quality of the trenchcoat through the picture on the computer screen. Roadblock is featured in the image as well, though he’s a bit blurry and in the background. Big thanks to geektrooper on Tumblr for the heads up. The image is mirrored below.
