Chuck Dixon, now with illustrator Butch Guice, returns to Winterworld – his classic, post-apocalyptic tale. With issue #1 of this new ongoing series from IDW, we see a continuation of the original limited issue series that Dixon and Jorge Zaffino created. In the bleak future, survival is a moment-to-moment struggle.

Scully and his 14-year-old companion, Wynn, along with their badger, Rah-Rah, trek across the frozen, stormy Caribbean where they discover a ruined war ship. Upon searching the ship for anything of value, the group procures something that will make traveling a bit easier – something they’ll need as both natural and physical dangers quickly approach.

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.

G.I. Joe #13
Written by Chuck Dixon
Art by Will Rosado
Colors by Romulo Farjado, JR.
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Editors: John Barber & Carlos Guzman
Covers by Will Rosado & Tommy Lee Edwards
IDW Publishing
Release Date: May 9, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #13 is one of the best issues of the title that I’ve read in a while. The dust from the Cobra Command crossover has settled, and there’s a new status quo for the G.I. Joe team. One that’s not really all that great, actually. It’s nice to have the Joes being the underdogs for a change.

Writer Chuck Dixon has been running the GI Joe universe for quite some time now, and he and the audience, are quite comfortable with that, as he’s doing a great job. He consistently delivers fresh, easily accessible stories that are both entertaining and exciting. This issue is no exception. You have Cobra with the upper hand, the Joes behind the 8-ball and off on a mission that they really can’t afford. Literally. To make matters worse, the Joes have been exposed to the world at large. So, things are quite tense for America’s freedom fighters, as you can imagine. This issue is solid, action packed, and fun to read. Everything you want in an issue of G.I. Joe!

G.I. Joe, Vol.2 #6
Written by Chuck Dixon
Art by Will Rosado
Colors by Romulo Fajardo
Letters by Shawn Lee
Covers by Robert Atkins, Tom Feister & Will Rosado
IDW Publishing
Release Date: October 5th, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

As much as G.I. Joe Renegades was supposed to be “the G.I. Joe cartoon you remember watching when you were a kid,” IDW Publishing’s G.I. Joe comic is the G.I. Joe comic you remember reading when you were a kid. Only now, it’s better, because you’re an adult (I assume) and you can enjoy it on a completely different level. And, the book has many levels. First, it features the toys, yes toys, you loved playing with when you were a kid. Second, it’s an all-out great action movie, and third, a solid, well put together comic book.
