HOMEFRONT! The G.I. Joe team battles Cobra to the death on American soil! COVERL GIRL, DOC, and the newest member, HASHTAG (yes, HASHTAG) have been separated from the rest and have to fight their way through hundreds of kill-crazy Cobra sympathizers-with a teammate's life hanging in the balance! Plus: The BARONESS has DUKE in her clutches. So why isn't DESTRO happy about that?

    Ive been a fan of the GI Joe books for a long time going all the way back to the Marvel series and this title has quickly become an instant favorite. I suggest this series to old fans and people looking for something different! Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Mar 22, 2013

    Frankly when all is said and done, G.I. Joe is doing a great job of capturing something from so many of our childhoods and making it modern and interesting again, and it's not a giant toy commercial like the old '80s cartoon! Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Andrew Sanford Apr 2, 2013

    The comic conveys a sense of real danger in that some of these characters may not survive. As noted, this action is tempered by the humor. The humor works within the context of the book itself, but they do sprinkle some fun references to the older material. If you like more straight, military books, I would probably pass but for everyone else I would suggesting diving in. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Rafael Gaitan Mar 25, 2013

    Van Lente's G.I. Joe has all the makings of a great action flick -- it's heavy on humor but also finds a heart to the material which avoids it skirting into mindlessness- it's mildly reminiscent of The Dirty Dozen and naturally Red Dawn in how human these characters feel and think.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 26, 2013

    Cut-off from the outside world, we'll have to see how long the JOEs can keep fighting and how long Duke can hold out before succumming to Dr. Mindbender's mind control. Once that happens, he'll agree to do whatever the Baroness commands. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Mar 22, 2013

    However, the book is solid enough that I'll finish out this arc, and possibly even start a second one, to see if the steam picks up a little. And if you had told me that even six months ago, I'd never believe you. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Mar 20, 2013

    Cheesy dialogue aside, this is still a good issue. The art holds up and handles the action well, giving readers plenty to sink their teeth into. If you're a new reader, this is still a great time to jump aboard. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kevin Beckham Mar 20, 2013

    So there it is. If you are loyal and blind to all reason and must have all things Joe in your life then pick this book up and enjoy. If the first issue made you nervous, then you might just want to wait for The Cobra Files in April. Read Full Review
