An excellent look at the upcoming IDW Cobra Files Relaunch

I think most of us appreciate and understand the geek cred that USA Today writer Brian Truitt brings to the table, and today he’s giving us another gift in the form of an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming Cobra Files G.I. Joe comic.  Along with the flagship title and the emergence of G.I. Joe: Special Missions, IDW’s Cobra themed book is getting a new issue #1, but beyond that, not a whole lot is changing, according to writer Mike Costa.

He has a great interview with Brian Truitt and talks about the make up of the team (pretty much what we see already… Chameleon, Ronin, Flint, and Lady Jaye) and how he likes to play in his little corner of the world.

It sounds like more obscure Cobra characters are in the wings, something I’m exceptionally happy about.  I’ve been extremely pleased with pretty much every single thing that Costa and Fuso have done with the Cobra book ever since the beginning, and I’m thrilled that it’s maintaining status quo with this new thematic shift in the mainstream G.I. Joe universe.

Take a peek at this great interview and sneak preview over on USA Today, and to keep up to date with all the latest geek happenings, follow Brian Truitt on Twitter.

  1. I think IDW deserves some credit for keeping this title, they obviously understand its a quality read. Sales are weak and still declining so I wouldn’t have been surprised if they had cut some excess fat and dropped the worst selling book. Instead they continue it in the re-boot which is so awesome. I wish more people would realize how great this book is and bring the sales up.
