G.I. Joe #15 is basically the perfect G.I. Joe comic. It’s got everything that you want – Joes, Cobras, and fighting. Another great issue by the current creative team. YO JOE!!
Writer Chuck Dixon sure knows how to handle a crowd!!! There are COUNTLESS characters in this issue and they all get a fair amount of “scren time,” he moves the story along at a great pace, and winds up and starts several plot threads. And let me tell you, one of them that he starts is gonna have a REALLY interesting outcome. Frankly, I’m afraid of how it’s going to turn out. Seriously, this issue is GREAT. In a way, it really reminds me of an old episode of the TV show, although clearly updated.
I’m really starting to LOVE artist Will Rosado on this book. He’s got the characters, tech, and scenery down pat and is really coming into the book, and the G.I. Joe universe as a whole. There are some GREAT underground scenes that, in the wrong hands, could’ve really turned out disastrous, but he executes them with a great precision. Well done, Will!!! Also, there are some very human moments in this issue, and he knocks those out of the park!!
As stated before, this is another great issue in a series of great issues. This book is, in my opinion, very under appreciated. We need to buck that trend right now! Get out and grab a copy, you’re not gonna be sorry.
