    G.I. JOE has been a great ride thus far and doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Dixon and Gallant are doing a wonderful job on this book. I recommend that any G.I. JOE fan pick up this series. This issue continues a trend of being easily assessable to fans both new and old. Read Full Review

    In the end, while G.I. Joe continues to push forward at an altogether bizarre, perhaps ill fit pace, Dixon is beginning to prove that this isn't necessarily a deal breaker. For those of who have given up on the series, do yourself a favor and give it a second read through. You might be surprised with what you find. The story might not be overly exciting, but it is certainly thorough. Dixon's tale is reserved in all the ways the recent film isn't, as the author has craftily layered multiple elements on top of a foundation that finds itself further fortified with every installment. And as this happens, the series is becoming much easier to swallow. Read Full Review

    Chuck Dixon continues to prove that he was a great choice to helm IDW's relaunch of the GI Joe franchise, though it is painfully clear with this issue that his strong writing can only take the book so far. The haphazard art of S.L. Gallant nearly ruined this issue for me. We may only two issues into his run as artist, but is it too early to call in for a replacement? Read Full Review
