Cobra 7Cobra #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.

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.

Release Date: October 19, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

After reading issue Transformers #27 and LOVING it, I have to admit, Transformers #28 was a bit of a let down. It was by no means terrible or unreadable or anything even close to that. But, it did have a couple of problems that kept me from enjoying it as much as I wanted to.

Story-wise, this issue is a lot of fun. Cover to cover action and it features what most of us Transformers fans love — no humans! Mike Costa and James Roberts deliver what every TF fan wants — all-out war between the Autobots and Decepticons — with a few really nice twists thrown in for good measure. All of our favorite characters each get an equal amount of “screen time,” while the story advances at a good pace. Fans of this series will definitely enjoy this chapter in the Chaos storyline.

Written by Mike Costa

Colors by Joana Lafuente

IDW Publishing
Release Date: October 5th, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

OK, let’s face it, there’s a lot of people out there who think licensed comics are inferior. To them, I say pick up a copy of Transformers #27 and then get back to me. This issue has everything you want in a Transformers comic: Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons.

Writer Mike Costa and IDW set the stage right off the back with a RECAP page!!!! People argue that the recap of the storyline should be told in the first few pages of the comic, but WHY waste the time when you’ve got so much story to tell? It’s a great, single paragraph that brings you up to date on what’s been going on, without talking down to you or making you feel bad if you haven’t read the previous issues. But, I’m telling you, if you haven’t read the previous issues — shame on you! You’re missing a fantastic comic.

Comics Review: G.I. Joe Cobra II #4

IDW Publishing: G.I. Joe Cobra II, Issue #4G.I. Joe Cobra II #4
Writer: Mike Costa and Christos N. Gage
Artist: Antonio Fuso
Color: Lovern Kindzierski
Letterer: Chris Mowry
IDW Publishing
Price: $3.99
Release date: April 28, 2010

It’s finally happened. It only took us more than a year, but Cobra Commander has finally shown up officially in an issue of IDW’s G.I. Joe series, and I’m really surprised his first appearance was in an issue of G.I. Joe Cobra, but here we are. Really though, he’s not the focus of this issue. The focus as always is on Chuckles, the undercover agent for the Joes, and on his mission, and we reach a big point in that mission in this issue, as Chuckles, and his teammate Chameleon are able to get out a valuable Cobra asset, but not without casualties.

G.I. Joe Cobra continues to be the standout series since IDW took over the property. The action continues to be exciting, and Chuckles continues to be an interesting character, with a dilemma not seen executed so well since Ed Brubaker’s Sleeper. Each issue makes you feel worse for him, and each issue sees him dig himself deeper into a hole. This issue is no different. If you like some espionage mixed in with your G.I. Joe, this is a series you will enjoy. It’s definitely not a “traditional” G.I. Joe series, but they have the main series if that’s what you’re looking for. This has characters you may know, but it’s told in a more realistic kind of way. Writers Mike Costa and Christos Gage have created a series that has me coming back for more with each issue.
