I’ve been shamelessly behind on my IDW G.I. Joe comic reviews, but with the release of Snake Eyes #21 next week, the current generation of G.I. Joe comics ends this chapter and sort of rebrands itself going forward. With the main title written by Fred Van Lente, Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow being replaced by Special Missions (written by Chuck Dixon) and a shift from Cobra to “The Cobra Files” (still written by Mike Costa) G.I. Joe will be moving in a slightly different direction.
Which, of course, brings up the question… how did the current generation end up?
G.I. Joe and Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow both worked together on the Target: Snake Eyes mini-series while Cobra brought the Russian “Oktober Guard” to the IDW universe. Click the read the rest of the story link below to review how these ended and how the transition evolves to the “new G.I. Joe” coming soon!
It’s like a little miniature Lee Byung-Hun is staring into my soul.
Thanks to Toy News International for passing along word that details and images are now available for the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation Storm Shadow figure from Hot Toys! Just like Snake Eyes, this is one incredible, movie-accurate version of the infamous Arashikage ninja. He looks SHARP.
