Ever since it was first announced with Scioli at the helm, I’ve been fascinated by the prospect of this new Transformers vs. G.I. Joe series. Scioli has a tremendously vintage artistic style, and judging by this preview, that style is infused throughout the entire story as well as the art.
The first issue apparently starts out with a bang, as G.I. Joe charges en masse into a Cobra compound, facing deadly creeper vines, Dr. Venom, and Major Bludd. All after a cool sequence between Starscream and Bumblebee, of course.
It’s an interesting aesthetic. I’m sure there will be some Joe fans who are a bit turned off by the distinctive look and feel, but I kinda love it. It calls back to a simpler time, and I love that things are pretty wide open. Once you see Snake Eyes in action, you’ll know what I mean.
