Danger Girl G.I. Joe #5 is the epic conclusion to this fantastic mini-series. And I do mean EPIC! I honestly can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed a comic this much before. It’s like the first time that someone put chocolate and peanut butter together. It’s too good not to share with the world.

It’s no surprise that writer Andy Hartnell knows his Danger Girls. After all, he co-created them. BUT, what is surprising is that he knows the G.I. Joe characters so well. This book is what every Joe fan wanted. It’s an extension of the 80’s cartoon series. There’s no updating costumes…I mean, fatigues..for modern times. No black leather and black & gray camo. The Joes run around in their classic looks and you don’t even bat an eye at it. It’s totally believable, and acceptable at the same time.

Danger Girl G.I. Joe #2
Written by Andy Hartnell
Pencils by John Royle
Inks by Philip Moy
Colors by Romulo Fajardo, Jr.
Letters by Neil Uyetake

Release Date: August 22, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

After reading Danger Girl G.I. Joe #2, I’d advise you to breathe into a paper bag, put your head between your knees, whatever it is you need to do to catch your breath. This issue, as was the first, is quite a roller coaster ride!

Andy Hartnell has proven himself time and again that he can write Danger Girl. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that he’s the BEST writer of Danger Girl that there ever has been and ever will be. You can imagine my surprise, then, at how well written this issue is, because the Danger Girl team is BARELY IN IT!!! That’s right, it’s 90% G.I. Joe and 200% awesome. The thing that I love about Hartnell’s work here is that he chooses the continuity that EVERYONE knows when it comes to G.I. Joe – the cartoon continuity. And from there he drops Abbey Chase and friends smack dab into the action. VERY well played.

Danger Girl: Revolver #3
Written by Andy Hartnell
Art by Chris Madden
Colors by Jeremy Cox
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Covers by J. Scott Campbell & Chris Madden
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 4, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Danger Girl Revolver #3 is just what you’ve missed about Danger Girl comics. Hopefully now that they’re back at IDW we can look forward to more minis or maybe even an ongoing. This franchise is too much fun to let lay for too long.

Series co-creator Andy Hartnell tells a classic Danger Girl story here, actually it’s more than your typical Danger Girl story as he uses this issue (and series) to delve into the personal lives of the team, which we haven’t seen before. Also, there’s TONS of action, intrigue, and a nice ongoing mystery. This issue is a goldmine for fans of the franchise, because Hartnall crams this issue with tons of past Danger Girl character cameos, which is a real treat for long time fans. My only complaint would be that it’s a quick read, but that’s due to pacing, and not lack of story.

Danger Girl: Revolver #1
Written by Andy Hartnell
Art by Chris Madden
Colors by Jeromy Cox
IDW Publishing
Release Date: January 18, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Andy Hartnell brings the girls back in Danger Girl: Revolver #1. Like most comics in the action-spy genre this issue paid homage to the movies, comics, and novels that have defined the spy franchise. Instead of the sleek, classy, and cool agent, Hartnell re-introduces readers to his impossibly proportioned heroines. Danger Girl: Revolver #1 is an introduction to this genre done right. With dynamic art and choreography, this issue introduces a brand new Danger Girl storyline lacking any dull moments. From the second this issue started it demanded the reader’s attention.

Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness #3
Written by Andy Hartnell
Art by Chris Bolson
Colors by Adriano Lucas
Letters by Marshall Dillion
Covers by Paul Renaud, Nick Bradshaw
Dynamite Entertainment and IDW Publishing
Release Date: September 8, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

Don’t you just love it when two great things come together? I’m not saying this is as good as a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup…mmm…chocolate and peanut butter…er, um. What I mean is this may seem like strange match, but it may well turn out to be a great combination. Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness #3 gives us a smattering of both the world of a Danger Girl and that of Ash.

This issue introduces the reader to Sydney Savage and a bit of her back story. We also get a lot of shots of her in her vintage black leather catsuit (no, I’m not complaining). So after we see how she became a Danger Girl we get to watch her infiltrate the facility where Ash is being held.
