JOE team rests in the hands of its newest-and most inexperienced- member, HASHTAG. What will she decide?

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Jun 18, 2013

    All in all, I'm definitely happy with this issue. It has shown some good, insightful understanding of G.I Joe and doesn't overburden the reader with complicated history and back story. The next few issues should tease in the new arc and, with the same team aboard, I see no reason why this high quality product can't continue. Read Full Review

    Here is the epic conclusion of this exciting first arc. The Baroness, Scrap Iron and Croc Master seem to have the upper hand on the Joes in Warrenton, Ohio. Though the Joes are spread thin with their backs to the wall, they make their final push to stop the terrorists and save the day. This issue was full of action and intense combat mixed with a solid story involving politics, hot topic issues and consperices. With this arc being as excellent as it was I cant what for what Van Lente has next for us. The art team gives a new look to classic characters and great designs on new characters. The colors are a perfect mix of brights and darks. This is my favorite of the GI Joe titles but all four are amazing reads. This series is still very young so if you are interested in jumping in it wont be hard to track the first issue down. Read Full Review

    I read the first volume hoping it'd get back to the previous tone, but I prefer the older tone and that of the other series on the market. If you have fond memories of the cartoon series and want a G.I. Joe that reflects that tone, go for it. But me, I like the more adult version. Read Full Review

    Cobra's victory and the return of the Mad Monk means the team will have to be even more vigilant in the months to come. We'll also have to see what the negative public fallout means for the team. For fans. Read Full Review

    The story is great, the art is bad. Read Full Review
