Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
While the two prior volumes had serious production issues with bad scans and misspelled words this one was fairly high quality. The art was a little flatter than I would like, I think some detail was lost in the reproduction, but it looks fine. I see another reviewer had a peeling cover but mine is holding up, it may have been an isolated problem.
The book has everything you'd expect from Larry Hama's classic GI Joe run. There's military jargon, blazing battles, betrayal, historical references and humor. The art, mainly by Ron Wagner and Marshall Rogers, is some of the best we would see in the Marvel series. There are some minor art issues, at the time GI Joe was so popular it was running biweekly with the artists trading off each issue. So you get things like Hawk taking time out of a fight to change uniforms between issues. It's irking but not too terrible given the deadlines they had.
So, if you like GI Joe, this is a fantastic book to pick up.
Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU! I fallen back in love with stories from the days when comics sucked you in with the greatest stories of all time! Larry Hama you are a genius and I salute you! Yo Joe!
