G.I. Joe #13 is one of the best issues of the title that I’ve read in a while. The dust from the Cobra Command crossover has settled, and there’s a new status quo for the G.I. Joe team. One that’s not really all that great, actually. It’s nice to have the Joes being the underdogs for a change.

Writer Chuck Dixon has been running the GI Joe universe for quite some time now, and he and the audience, are quite comfortable with that, as he’s doing a great job. He consistently delivers fresh, easily accessible stories that are both entertaining and exciting. This issue is no exception. You have Cobra with the upper hand, the Joes behind the 8-ball and off on a mission that they really can’t afford. Literally. To make matters worse, the Joes have been exposed to the world at large. So, things are quite tense for America’s freedom fighters, as you can imagine. This issue is solid, action packed, and fun to read. Everything you want in an issue of G.I. Joe!

I’m getting really fond of artist Will Rosado‘s work. To make things that much sweeter, you can tell he’s really getting familiar with the characters and tech of the G.I. Joe universe, and it’s showing greatly. He’s improving with each issue in my opinion, and you can see his enjoyment on each page. I mean, c’mon, how fun must it be to draw G.I. Joe for a living? From what Rosado puts on the page, I’d say pretty darn fun.

Month in and month out, IDW and the creative team put out a fantastic book. Yes, this is the thirteenth issue, but it’s a decent jumping-on point for new readers. I would highly recommend picking up this issue. It’s a great read and you won’t regret it!
