New comic day arrives on Wednesday this week with the latest exciting issue of G.I. Joe from IDW Publishing. The Mad Monk saga continues through the streets of New York as G.I. Joe scrambles to stop his nefarious plan!
Check out the preview for this latest action-packed issue below.
G.I. Joe #9
Fred Van Lente (w) • Steve Kurth (a) • Jamal Igle, Kurth (c)
THREAT MATRIX! Below the streets and above the high rises of the New York City, the G.I. Joe team is strained to the brink fighting back THE MAD MONK’s all-out assault on the Big Apple! But… is that playing right into his hands to ultimately destroy DUKE?
IDW Publishing obviously has some love for the good old days of Marvel’s G.I. Joe title and has gone to great lengths to demonstrate that love.
The Real American Hero continuation has been fantastic, and IDW’s Complete Collection series (working hand in hand with Mark Bellomo) has crafted a really nice all encompassing run of the old Real American Hero titles. IDW has taken this formula to their IDW Limited series as well, and Volume 2 is now up for pre-order!
With their exclusive Black Label, Blue Label, and Red Label offerings in the IDW Limited online store, there is something here for everyone, even featuring some exclusive art by comic legend Russ Heath. I have the pleasure of owning Volume 1 of this great series (which I reviewed right here) and I cannot recommend the IDW Limited collections enough for the discriminating G.I. Joe comic fan.
New comic day hits tomorrow and G.I. Joe fans are treated to two excellent new issues from your favorite comics publisher, IDW!
The next thrilling addition to the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero continuity hits tomorrow as the G.I. Joe team mobilizes to rescue Grunt in Sierra Gordo while the gears are in motion in the IDW Universe to disband Flint’s Black Ops team in the Cobra Files. Check out the previews for these two issues below.
G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #7
Mike Costa (w) • Antonio Fuso (a & c)
BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE – PART 1! FLINT is ready to disband the COBRA FILES team, but CHAMELEON will have none of it. But what neither one suspects is that TOMAX, the captive COBRA member, has an ace up his sleeve that will rock the team to their core. No punches are pulled in G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #7!

Antonio Fuso returns for the beginning of the end!
Riley Rossmo variant cover!
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #194
Larry Hama (w) • S L Gallant, Hama (a & c)
G.I. JOE makes its way to Sierra Gordo, looking for the next piece of the puzzle that will reveal COBRA’s newest plot. But when they find that the evil corporation Revanche has a presence in Latin America, they could be involved in something far more sinister than the typical COBRA plot. What secrets does Revanche hold?

Part of IDW’s “IDW Gets Animated” variant cover month!
In a terrific, funny, and fast paced four-way conversation, the folks from Comic Book Resources have connected with Fred Van Lente (G.I. Joe), Chuck Dixon (Special Missions), and Mike Costa (The Cobra Files) to speak about the current state of the IDW G.I. Joe universe and where we are heading from here.
There is some great insight about fan response to each individual title, what to expect in the coming months (The Cobra Files sounds like it’s going to get intense).
I still don’t quite understand how Mike Costa did it, but somehow he took one of my least liked elements of the IDW universe (the prevalence of “green shirt” characters) and twisted it all around into something interesting. Clockspring has quickly become a deeply layered character central to the Cobra Files mythology, and I find myself wanting to tune into this title every month to see what he’s going to do next. Right? Not Flint, not Lady Jaye, not even Chameleon or Tomax. Friggen Clockspring.
Issue #6 hits comic shops tomorrow, check out the preview below.
G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #6
Mike Costa (w) • Werther Dell’edera (a) • Dell’edera, Antonio Fuso (c)
THE BOY MOST LIKELY TO, Part 2! After being captured by the enemy and seeing the team’s mission fall apart, FLINT’s faith in his leadership abilities has been shaken. Can FLINT keep things together and help the team get past their mistakes… or have the cracks begun to show?

I said this in the post I made with the preview for this issue…but it seems like just yesterday we were anticipating what Fred Van Lente was going to do with IDW’s flagship G.I. Joe title, and here we are, seven issues deep, and we’ve already made it through one story arc and are on the verge of kicking off another.
Even before this issue was released it was causing some controversy, mostly based around the supposed return of G.I. Joe ninja Snake Eyes. So, were those concerns valid? Read the full review after the jump. As one might suspect, there are spoilers contained below!
So last night I was going through Comixology to make sure I was up to date on my G.I. Joe comics, and was surprised to see Real American Hero #193 had been released! For whatever reason IDW hadn’t put it out there for a Preview, so I had forgotten it was due this week. I’m glad I found it, though, because it was another great issue from Larry Hama, Sergio Cariello, and SL Gallant. Cariello took care of the majority of art chores, with Gallant filling in on the final few pages.
Check out the full review after the jump.
