In the world put forth by Dynamite Entertainment, fetish model and actress Bettie Page led a double life working for the government in an underground spy capacity. Indeed, she bore witness to several earth threatening travesties and was paramount in the success of many of the cases.

The story shared here in Bettie Page: Unbound #1 is but one of many times she risked life and limb for the good of humankind. There is, however, something that makes this particular tale more appealing than some of the others. Read on if you must know more!

G.I. Joe #1 ushers in a new era of awesomeness for the Joe team. It’s G.I. Joe against Cobra, the…..peacekeepers. Yes. You read that right. Peacekeepers. As in people who keep the peace. Let’s see how that works out for them.

For the first time in history, G.I. Joe has a woman at the helm. Literally. Writer Karen Traviss makes the jump from military fiction novels to comics, and the one burning question that I have is, why didn’t she do it sooner?

Cobra #7
Written by Mike Costa
Art by Antonio Fuso
Colors by Arianna Florean
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Covers by David Williams, Antonio Fuso, Trevor Hutchison
IDW Publishing
Release Date: November 23rd, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

WOW! Cobra #7 is really gonna put you on the edge of your seat! While we don’t find out who the new Cobra Commander is — that happens next month in G.I. Joe #8 — we do get some big time payoff. It’s getting down to the wire and business is picking up!

Mike Costa does a great job writing what basically ends up being Die Hard in the G.I. Joe headquarters. Secrets are revealed, the body count rises, and the person that I thought was gonna be Cobra Commander is….well, let’s just say it’s not going to be who I thought it was. Just an all around great issue for the penultimate chapter of this year-long storyline. After this issue, the dynamic of this whole book is going to change a full 180 degrees. I can’t wait to see where it goes next.

Cobra #6
Written by Mike Costa

IDW Publishing
Release Date: October 26, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

I have a feeling that Cobra #6 is the calm before the storm. The really, really BIG storm that’s going to be rolling through the GI Joe titles in November and December as the Hunt for Cobra Commander storyline concludes.

I have some mixed feeling about this issue. While the there are some further developments in the overall arc, for some reason I get the feeling that there should have been more. Writer Mike Costa gives us another solid issue, but with the reveal of the new Cobra Commander just two issues away, I was expecting a lot more.
