G.I. JOE #1

After reading a couple of pages of this comic the only thought running through my head was "What the hell is going on?" IDW launches a new series featuring the several familiar faces of G.I. JOE in a world that's certainly less familiar. No longer strictly an American military organization, the JOEs now serve the world at large, taking on trouble all over the world. And in this first issue that includes Roboninjas. That's right, I said Roboninjas.

Oh, and do you Transformers fans remember the Decepticon Skywarp? He's now a member of G.I. JOE. No, seriously. I swear I'm not making this up.

Set after the events of IDW's big Revolution crossover, this is pretty damn crazy. Personally, I like my G.I. JOE a bit more grounded (where Snake Eyes is one of more unique aspects of the story). I've also got to say the art by Giannis Milonogiannis doesn't do much for me at all. After one issue I've learned this new JOE may not be for me. And you know what they say, learning is half the battle. Pass.
