What’s on Joe Mind Special Edition #37 – G.I. Joe: Retaliation Commentary!

Somewhat surprising to us, many folks have been asking if we could do a screening of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film with our own commentary…well, since G.I. Joe news is so slow, we figured what better time than now! Join Gary, Justin, and Mike as they watch the entire G.I. Joe: Retaliation Extended Action Cut on Blu-Ray and give their thoughts and opinions throughout the entire film.

We tried to keep sports metaphors to a minimum, but no promises about childish humor.

Check out the embedded player below or our Podbean page for the latest special edition, and enjoy!

Venom and Spy Troops) will be making an appearance at the Convention next year. They will join Michael Bell (Sunbow’s Duke) and BJ Ward (Sunbow’s Scarlett) for voice talent, as well as former G.I.

Upcoming Transformers and G.I. Joe writer Scioli breaks down classic G.I. Joe comics

It was announced a short while ago that Tom Scioli, a long time comics writer and artist, would be tackling the first ever G.I. Joe and Transformers crossover from IDW Publishing.

To prepare for this event, Mr. Scioli has been doing copious amounts of research on the classic Marvel Comics G.I. Joe series, and he has written a fantastic long form essay over on Comics Alliance breaking down some of his thoughts and perspective from this research. It’s a great look back in time at some of the early events of the Marvel series, and refreshing to see someone embrace and appreciate the quality of the Marvel Comics series back in the day.

Check out Comics Alliance to see this great article, it’s an awesome read, and the fact that Mr. Scioli is going to this length makes me feel pretty great about the upcoming series.
