    Drawing more from the day-glo neon of the cartoon than Hama or Dixon's high-tech war stories, Revolutions: GI Joe #1 is a book that hits the ground running, serving up a host of exciting action sequences, daring escapes and white-knuckle twists. As someone who's actively ignored all things Cybertron for my whole life, the addition of a Transformer in the book's final pages is a source of some worry but it can't spoil what's arguably one of the most purely fun GI Joe books in ages.

    The art is decent once you get past the cover, and the dialogue is quite good too, but it's just the Dire Wraiths. They don't fit in this comic at all, and their inclusion just ruins it all. We're not certain this is a one-shot, but other tie-ins have been so we're hoping this remains a single issue. Read Full Review

    I like the idea of GI Joe and the Transformers and Rom all tied into a story, but shape shifting aliens? I just can't make that seem interesting in my head. This book had decent art, pretty consistent throughout the book, minus that cover art (which was terrible). The dialogue and everything seemed good, all of the Joes had their own personality and tone which I liked. I just couldn't get past those fucking aliens. Maybe this is a good series and perhaps it'll flesh itself out later down the road, but I'm leaving this one where I found it. Read Full Review
