I just feel like doing it. For story flow.
I've decided I'm going to hold off on reading the new G.I. Joe series till I'm done catching up on the previous comics.
Okay, although I think it'll just fine to read it without being caught up on all of IDW Joe.
Religious brain washing via drugs, strange hallucinations heavily featuring snakes, Croc Master's origin story, brutal recruit or training methods done by Skullbuster, and it ends with the arcs "hero" joining The Coil and being its Human sacrifice. With Serpentor(The Coil's leader) chanting "Cobra-La-La-La-La!!!".
Sounds like a very happy time.
Especially the arc that introduces The Coil... 'Shivers'
What happens in that one?
Well, I've now finished the first portion IDW's G.I. Joe comics. Interesting spin on things. The Cobra series in particular were really gritty.
Yeah, so I've heard.
I'll keep searching for it. But if I can't find it, I'll settle for reading the plot.
The one shot that introduces Agent Helix, titled G.I. Joe: Helix Special, is no where to be found on the IDW app. I couldn't even find it on iBooks.
Huh, that's weird. Dunno where you'd have to go to find it.
Well my reading of IDW G.I. Joe has encountered its first hiccup.
I'm enjoying it so far. More then I thought I would.
Well, I've now finished G.I. Joe Origins, the chronological first series in the IDW continuity. Some of the arcs I enjoyed more then others. And I'm currently a third of the way through the first ongoing series.
That's great to hear. Hope it's good.
Neither do I.
Ultra Magnus, Hound, Arcee, Shockwave, Megatron, Star Saber, Thunderwing, Unknown Evil, and Optimus Primal.
If it's Shockwave or Thunderwing, that means resurrection for them.
This whole Power of the Primes thing could prove interesting.
Yeah, a lot of characters on there that could mean interesting things for IDW. Not sure who I want to vote for.
I read the entire Transformers comics from the beginning(Marvel and IDW), and I recently read the entire original run of G.I. Joe RAH(I'm also part way through IDW's continuation). This should be no problem. :)
Well, I've copied a list of the whole series in proper reading order. All 196 issues. Tomorrow I start with G.I. Joe Origins.
Good luck with all that reading!
Sure the consensus is overall mixed. But that didn't stop me from reading AHM and the Ongoing for Transformers.
I've also officially decided I'm going to read all the previous G.I. Joe IDW comics. Primarily in order to familiarize myself with the incarnations of these characters.
I've only read the Van Lente run. It was all right.
I guess it's not for everyone.
And I liked MASK more then I was expecting. Like I said in the thread, a real Fast and Furious vibe to it.
Haven't read it. Wasn't too impressed with the Revolution one-shot or previews, I'm afraid.
Well, that was certainly an epic ending to Revolution. Bring on Revolutionaries!
Yep! I enjoyed it a lot.
Only three issues left to go. Then IDW's new status quo will be established.
And the last main issue, we're going to get to see all the heroes fight together. :)
