    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Mar 29, 2016

    Overall, while it isnt necessarily all that refined and doesnt perhaps feature too much in the way of subtle character development or nuanced storytelling, for a wonderfully entertaining bout of air-punching, grin-raising escapism, you really couldnt ask for anything more than this. The quarter finals are next, and with the undercard effectively out of the way, each of the upcoming bouts is going to be given a larger page count to develop, meaning more action, better psychology and storytelling, and hopefully that Snake Eyes versus M. Bison matchup that everyone really wants to see. You can count me in for the rest of the way, thats for damn sure. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Gary Collinson Mar 30, 2016

    It may seem unfair to criticise a Street Fighter and G.I. Joe comic for containing too much action; however, it's not the amount of action that's the issueas such, but rather the formulaic 'Fight 1, Fight 2, Fight 3, Fight 4, End' structure. We're only two issues in, and already it feels a little repetitive. At this point, this isa Street Fighter comic, guest starring some G.I. Joe characters. I'm still enjoying the series for what it is, but let's hopethe third issue mixes it up a little and gives us more insight into the wider storygoing on outside of the arena. Read Full Review

    So while all this is fine and dandy, it is a tad repetitive. Fight 1, fight 2, fight 40987".. It feels more like a Street Fighter arcade edition story with a few G.I.Joe character thrown in as game exclusive characters. I'm still enjoying the series, but I hope they mix it up and give it a little more meat. Read Full Review

    This is a team up of epic proportions that a child of the 80s like myself had imagined for a long, long time. The first issue had some surprises, but this issue actually kept me guessing, and I enjoyed that a lot. The animated art style was a lot of fun, and the fighting was actually quite dynamic for being filled with 2D sidescroller characters, and 80s animation characters. The fight between Cammy and M Bison was a really awesome and high-energy way to close out the issue, and I loved the way Storm Shadow and Guile acted- they seemed very much like their natural selves. Jinx, Guile, M Bison and Snake Eyes are my picks for the Final Four of this crossover mismatched madness tournament. But we will see how close, or far, from right I am.
