Remember all that agonizing lead up time to issue #200 of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero? Can you believe we’re posting solicitations for issue #205 already? Time flies, huh?
Apparently August is still too early for the “Fall of G.I. Joe”, so we see the aforementioned #205 along with the second issue of Transformers and G.I. Joe. Check out the full solicitations list after the jump.
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.
