IDW Solicitations for G.I. Joe titles – August, 2015

Still no real news on the next evolution of G.I. Joe at IDW, as we cruise through another month of Real American Hero and Transformers vs. G.I. Joe. Not that I’m complaining, Real American Hero continues to excite, even as it stumbled just a bit through Snake Eyes’ ultimate sacrifice.

Looks like that story continues full steam ahead with issue #217 coming in August.

  1. I really want to like Transformers vs. G.I. Joe but it is just unreadable. The art, while an interesting style, just doesn’t fit the world of G.I. Joe or Transformers. Tried to read issue #4 yesterday and just couldn’t get past the first couple of pages. The story is solid but the way its being told is very difficult to follow.

  2. I, for one, love Transformers vs. GI Joe, but I get the issues people have with the art. For me, it contributes to the ridiculous feeling of a child’s imagination run-rampant – Like a crazy middle-school fever dream. If it was the only Joe comic we were getting, I’d get the disappointment, but as a supplement to a full roster of Joe fiction in comic form, I think it’s pretty great. And pretty much the only way I’d want a crossover to go at this point, as I think Transformers, as a property, is patently ridiculous anyway.

    That said, I again want to reiterate – I get why people don’t like it. I’m mainly just saying why I do.

    But let’s get to the real nitty-gritty – Why do we even bother calling the property GI Joe anymore? How about the Spectacular Snake-Eyes, or Superior Snake-Eyes, in the case of RAH? And why is he taking a heel-turn in every comic where he isn’t “dead”?
