Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 (of 6)

Release Date: June 21, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I seldom like modern twists on what I would consider a classical piece of literature, even when I’m not a huge fan of the original work. There is something almost perverse about modifying something that old. However, I will be the first to admit that sometimes what I think is going to be a modification or a reboot is instead an invigorating chapter or work unto itself. Case in point, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 is a spectacular sequence of events that do not in any way tarnish Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Never would I have thought this would entrance me so.

Cover Price: $3.99

Wouldn’t it be great if you could literally see the evil in the world? What if the evil that was in mankind was there by their choice? Maybe they made a bargain of sorts? Well, Darkness Visible #1, from writers Mike Carey (Unwritten, Lucifer, Girl with All the Gifts) and Arvind Ethan David (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency), explores something quite similar to that concept. For you see, the evil does walk among us! In many cases, they are us.

Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5 is stunning. That’s the good news. The bad news is, that’s pretty much all I can say about it without spoiling anything. Seriously, this is one of the hardest reviews I’ve ever had to writer. Every page of this book could be considered a spoiler. But, I’ll do my best.

There’s a reason that Mike Costa writes a lot of G.I. Joe comics. He’s really really good at it. So, if you’ve been keeping up on the title (which you REALLY should be), you know that Jinx and Billy are on the run from somebody’s who’s trying to kill them. This issue, we find out why and the answer will shock you and at the same time, it’s just flat out brilliant. PLUS….OK, this is impossible to keep up with at this point.

In G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes, Agent of Cobra #3 we get more kick butt action than you could ask for! The mystery of why Snake Eyes is working for Cobra takes a back seat this issue, but that’s ok, there’s plenty of other stuff to keep us entertained and to keep the story moving. But, there is a little something missing from this issue. Want to find out what it is? Read on.

In GI Joe: Snake Eyes Agent of Cobra #2, the “Holy crap what the heck am I looking at?!?!?!” factor continues, in a big way. This book is the unexpected gem of IDW’s current output of GI Joe books, and that’s saying something, because the other ones are not too shabby at all!
