When we last saw Zartan in the IDW G.I. Joe storyline, he was on board an airplane as it crashed in the Australian wilderness…there had been no real sign of a hood or eye black, and besides his uncanny ability to mimick the appearance of others (a great genetic experiment that was actually a highlight of IDW’s backstories in my opinion) he bore little real resemblance to the Zartan we knew and loved.
Well, that’s apparently all changing with the July release of G.I. Joe: Special Missions #5, which brings Zartan as well as the Dreadnoks back to the forefront, and Zartan looks might familiar this time around.
Newsarama spoke with both Chuck Dixon and Will Rosado about Special Missions #5, and the details are revealed right here.
From the sounds of things, the Dreadnoks in IDW’s world are pretty nasty little buggers. Not so much the comic relief as they were in other G.I. Joe universes. I’m kind of looking forward to see where they’re going with this. Again, check out Newsarama for the latest info.
