Welcome, my friends, to Big Trouble In Little China #3! Twenty-eight years ago, one of the finest action comedies to ever grace the silver screen was released. And apparently it was so awesome that it took this long to create a suitable followup to the film. This third issue, in what has to be one of the funniest comics around, is a worthy sequel to John Carpenter‘s masterpiece. Of course, the first issue got a wonderful review from GoD’s PS Hayes, so make sure you check it out, too.

G.I. Joe #16
Written by Chuck Dixon
Artist Will Rosado
Colors by Romulo Fajardo Jr.
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Editors John Barber & Carlos Guzman
Cover by Tommy Lee Edwards
IDW Publishing
Release Date: August 15, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

After a somewhat mediocre last issue, G.I. Joe #16 fires back with a vengeance. This issue moves the story forward quite a bit, advancing MANY storylines and overall, manages to entertain the reader.

Chuck Dixon turns in a great story this issue. It’s a classic G.I. Joe tale, with all the trademarks of what makes G.I. Joe so much fun to read. You’ve got several split up groups of Joes each fighting their own battles, and some of them aren’t actually fighting Cobra; in fact, only half of them are. Between the main story pieces are one to two page little stories that remind you about what some characters are up to and others that set things up for future issues, which is always a nice touch, especially when the payoff is going to be big. There’s some great dialouge between the characters, and I really feel that Dixon is finally making these characters his own instead of writing them how he thinks they need to be written. There’s a couple of different endings, all great, but there’s one involving the immediate future of the G.I. Joe team that will have you impatiently waiting for this book to come out next month.

G.I. Joe #15 is basically the perfect G.I. Joe comic. It’s got everything that you want – Joes, Cobras, and fighting. Another great issue by the current creative team. YO JOE!!

Writer Chuck Dixon sure knows how to handle a crowd!!! There are COUNTLESS characters in this issue and they all get a fair amount of “scren time,” he moves the story along at a great pace, and winds up and starts several plot threads. And let me tell you, one of them that he starts is gonna have a REALLY interesting outcome. Frankly, I’m afraid of how it’s going to turn out. Seriously, this issue is GREAT. In a way, it really reminds me of an old episode of the TV show, although clearly updated.

‘Doctor Who’ Meets Jack The Ripper In New Comic From IDW

The closest the Doctor ever got to Jack the Ripper on TV was in the Tom Baker episode of Doctor Who entitled The Talons of Wang-Chiang. The Doctor, with companion Leela, arrives in Victorian London. The Doctor wears a Sherlock Holmes-style hat during the episode and the concept of the crimes of The Ripper are vaguely hinted at through the episode.

But now, for the first time ever, Matt Smith‘s incarnation of the Doctor will pit him up in an adventure that places him in the path of Jack the Ripper, in a new comic book from IDW Publishing.

io9 got the scoop on the comic book release, where the Doctor ends up in Victorian London again, this time with companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, in a situation that makes them discover that Jack The Ripper is on the prowl, and it may turn out that he may not necessarily be a human serial killer… in fact he may not even be human at all.

Top Cow
Price: $3.99; Release date: February 24, 2010

Marvel and DC have been getting most of the mainstream buzz over big event storylines like Blackest Night and Siege, but they aren’t the only game in town when it comes to crossover events. Top Cow has debuted several crossovers in recent years that have introduced major changes for their characters, and that trend looks like it will continue in 2010.

For those who haven’t been following Top Cow closely as of late, the trend began with a mini-series called First Born. That series saw the birth of a daughter to Sara Pezzini and Jackie Estacado, better known as Witchblade and The Darkness, respectively.

In 2008, First Born was followed up with a mini-series called Broken Trinity. This event established Witchblade, Darkness, and an angelic warrior known as Angelus as the three primary forces in Top Cow’s supernatural universe. Their individual weapons became known as artifacts and by the end of Broken Trinity we found out the three were not alone, and that a total of 13 artifacts existed in the world.
