New GI Joe comics
I am more of a cartoon watcher than comic book reader but I was bored today and visited Boise's local comic book store Captain Comics and well bought some comics. I went with the new GI Joe stuff of course to hold me over until the movie comes out. I heard some good things on the new IDW series and was curious to see what was inside. For the first three, the story is not too bad, but really short per issue. It feels like the comic is three pages long, and thats it. Or maybe its more, and its so good its fast reading. The characters and art were decent, but since I don't read too many comics I can't really compare it with what is really good. Its fun to see updated versions of the Joe's in todays times. It looks like its keeping true to established uniform design and vehicles. I saw part of a H.A.V.O.C in the PIT garage, but still had that dangerous glass canopy (thanks 20 stupidest GI Joe Vehicles ever). Now I have to remember to keep up with this series. That's usually my downfall with comics is remembering to keep up with the new issues. I think I can get a box or something where they will hold incoming issues. I will have to try that.
