    Exclusive Preview: “Revolutionaries” #7

    Multiversity Comics has the full preview of Revolutionaries #7 up. This is the penultimate issue of the series, featuring Sgt. Savage (from G.I. Joe's Sgt. Savage and His Screaming Eagles line) as the guest star.

    It also features more Centurion and the Adventure Team. Which means this issue is going to be awesome.

    Are you just gonna jump different websites posting the same stuff without knowing why it's gone? The writer chose to end it. She chose to not continue the series.

    Surely they haven't forgotten the other Sgt. in the G.I. Joe ranks:

    Aubrey Sitterson actually commented on this in the First Strike Reddit AMA today. They can't use any of the Joes based on real people in the book (likely due to licensing or likeness rights.) So sadly, we won't be back to the Slaughter House for a while.

    Centurion is kind of a goofy tool, isn\'t he?

    Shouldn\'t Centurion come from a green-blue ball instead?

    Yes, but his memories of his past are fuzzy at best. He probably doesn't remember Eukaris and, given his current form, Kup has no reason to assume he's from any colony, let alone Eukaris.

    Didn't Blackrock explicitly say that he was from Eukaris though in issue 5 in Kup's audio receptor shot?

    The Adventure Team becoming "Adventure Force" in the '90s and getting new uniforms with pouches and shoulderpads is the best thing ever.

    Terrible art style, weird characters that look more like they belong to the Tick cartoon (Bullet Man, really?) and Sgt Savage not even remotely looking like the wrestler he was modelled on? Pass.

    Generally also it is a bad sign if your comic has to label every character and has 10 labels per page, because otherwise the readers cannot guess who is who. Y'know who has no such problems? DC and Marvel, because they feature characters in costumes that are easily recognized despite what artist draws them. Or Transformers, where you kinda recognize them unless they are drawn by someone like Ramondelli.

    Look I admit I\'ve never been very enthusiastic about this cross-IP thing IDW\'s been doing, but this makes me feel like they\'re spreading themselves too thin. Everybody\'s trying to do their own thing and it doesn\'t feel like they\'re meshing all that well, and at the same time sharing the panel space reduces the amount of time available to each IP.

    That's completely wrong, as both Marvel and DC have used character captions in their comics before.

    But... if you've read First Strike #1 this week, the buildup for Revolutionaires is spoiled.

    Yes, and were those issues good?
    remember when Marvel TF did this, labelling the 25 new characters introduced every issue? It's why Budiansky quit eventually...
    I don't see MTMTE/Lost Light doing this, either.

    It varies, because character captions don't decide a story's quality.

    And Budiansky left because he had to introduce 25 new characters every issue, it had nothing to do with labelling--I'm not even sure he ever used those, he just had characters introduce themselves in awkward exposition. So that's not very relevant to this.

    That was what i was referring to, Sockie. He introduced so many characters each issue, the cast grew to gigantic size and you had to label them so people can tell them apart.
    Now this is much worse with humans because depending on the artist and how he draws faces, they tend to look quite the same-y (anyone remember Pat Lee's generic anime faces?) - so unless their uniforms are specific and different, you will have trouble telling them apart. It's why I know far more Cobra characters than Joes, because military uniforms tend to look the same, while there is quite a difference between Major Bludd, Zartan and Serpentor in attire.

    So wait, you're actually trying to say that Budiansky having characters awkwardly introduce themselves and give all of their personality, quirks, etc. in a whole paragraph is the same thing as small boxes that give characters' names and then a couple of words about them? They're not. One takes a hell of a lot more energy and space than the other, and interrupts the story a lot more than a tiny box; they're two completely different methods of exposition. Hell, Budiansky probably would have been happier to use the kinds of character captions used in Revolutionaries and other books.
