    Big Comic Page - Connor Stephens Feb 5, 2019

    There was always a slim possibility that the pairing of Fiffe and G. I. Joe could end up less than spectacular, but with the understanding and love shown to these characters and an exciting location to play in, G. I. Joe Sierra Muerta looks and reads even better than I could have hoped. Add in a crazy ending which suggests that weve seen nothing of the madness to come, and this first issue stands out as easily the finest action comic on the shelves this week. Issue #2 cannot come soon enough. Read Full Review
