A few different sources have begun posting reviews of the most recent issues of the G.I. Joe comics online… I’m starting to realize there just aren’t enough hours in the day for me to review everything I want to review, so I may have to be more selective. 🙁
Anyway, here’s what we’ve got so far sprinkling around the World Wide Web:
- G.I. Joe #4 (IGN Comics)
- G.I. Joe #4 (HissTank.Com)
- Movie Prequel #2 w/ Destro (IGN Comics)
- Movie Prequel #2 w/ Destro (HissTank.Com)
Very interesting reviews…I find it intriguing that the fringe books seem to be getting more positive buzz than the core book itself. It doesn’t seem to be a reflection of Chuck Dixon’s writing (since he’s writing the movie prequel as well) but, whatever the reason, that is the case. I do think that the core series started off somewhat slow, and has continued to crawl pace-wise for all 4 issues. I think something has to start ramping up in that title soon, or it may just get too drawn out. After all, the Marvel series told a very similar story way back in Issue #3, and it only took one issue to tell it. How long do we really need to see Destro’s henchman playing X-Box?
