It’s that time of month again, and IDW gives us their full solicitations for June of 2010.  It looks like 2010 is going to be a big year for G.I. Joe in the comics world, even without a movie or a full run of action figures to keep hope alive.  It did take me a while, but I’m finally becoming at least somewhat invested in the IDW universe.  G.I. Joe #15 was a great read, G.I. Joe: Cobra has been fantastic (and is now an ongoing series!), and G.I. Joe: Origins has really been picking up steam as well.
June looks like it’s going to give us Zartan’s introduction to IDW in G.I. Joe: Origins, as well as a new take on Serpentor in G.I. Joe: Cobra.  Really looking forward to it, and IDW is doing a great job filling the holes in what could have been a tame year, G.I. Joe wise.  Click on the “Read the rest of this entry” link below for the full details, and thanks to The Terror Drome for the announcement.
