G.I. Joe, Volume 4 #7
Written by Karen Traviss
Art by Steve Kurth
Colors by Kito Young
Letters by Tom B. Long
Edits by John Barber
Cover art by Jeffrey Veregge and Dheeraj Verma with Sanjay
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 1, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #7 continues the story of Cobra versus a group of renegades with what’s left of the G.I. Joe team literally caught in the middle. This book is way more than “good guys vs. bad guys,” it’s almost a political thriller mashed-up with an action movie. If you’re looking for the colorful garb of the Joes or Cobras, you won’t find any of that here.

IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 4, 2015

G.I. Joe #6 gives us some much needed closure. Not complete and total closure of the book, but some great wrap-ups on some storylines, and a lot of forward movement on some other storylines. And, that’s just a bonus, because the rest of the issue is pretty awesome!

IDW Publishing
Release Date: September 24, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

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?

G.I. Joe #14
Written by Paul Allor
Art by Steve Kurth
Inks by Allen Martinez
Colors by Joana LaFuente
Letters by Shawn Lee
Consulting Editor: Carlos Guzman
Editor: John Barber
Special Thanks to Max Brooks
Covers by Steve Kurth, Allen Martinez, Joana LaFuente & Freddie E. Williams II, David Garcia Cruz
IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 19, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #14 starts with a shock and then just keeps on going. Talk about ACTION!!! There’s more than you can possibly handle in this issue. All this and I haven’t even mentioned the great story and awesome art.

Writer Paul Allor lays out a story that reads like an episode of the original G.I. Joe cartoon, only better. With more character depth and action and modern day military situations. Allor manages to get all the trademark G.I. Joe hallmarks into this issue, while telling a great story that focuses on the newest Joe team member, Hashtag, and her trouble to fit into the Joe team when her position is eliminated. There’s some great character development for her, but it doesn’t take away from the missions that the Joes are sent on. This was actually a real page turner, and Allor managed to give us a great close to this issue, yet leaving the characters in a great “to be continued” moment.

G.I. Joe #13
Written by Paul Allor
Art by Alex Cal, Robert Atkins & Juan Castro, and Chris Evenhuis
Colors by David Garcia Cruz, and Joana LaFuente
Letters by Gilberto Lazcano
Covers by Steve Kurth, Allen Martinez, Joana LaFuente & Freddie E. Williams III, and David Garcia Cruz
IDW Publishing
Release Date: February 5, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #13 could be titled “Everything you always wanted to know about Cobra, but where afraid they’d kill you for asking.” Thankfully, it’s not. What it IS is a really awesome issue.

This month, new writer Paul Allor gives us not one, not two, but THREE stories all packed into one surprisingly not over-crammed issue. The stories are framed with The Baroness being told about the history of the Cobra organization. A tale that goes back — like REALLY way back. It turns out, the Cobra organization has been behind some pretty interesting things that you’d never even associate them with. You know that I’m anti-spoiler, so I’m not going to tell you what those things are, but I suggest you pick this issue up and find out what they are, because I guarantee you’ll be highly entertained. This is one of my favorite issues of Joe in a long time.
