Howdy, Elsewhere: Not that you couldn't have done it yourself, but I DECREE as a MOD of the COMIC BOOK CULTURE BOARD that there shall be a G.I. JOE THREAD! THIS....I COMMAND!!!! Much time was misspent as a youth in the pages of Marvel's G.I. Joe comics, idly wondering whether Snake Eyes or Wolverine would win in a ninja duel and hoping that some mission would send Scarlett and Lady Jaye undercover as bikini models in Hawaii or something. Look, I was a teenager and the hormones were in full rage. Sue me. Every now and then, I think about getting one of the reprint books to see if they're still as cool as I thought they were (as happened when I revisited my first X-Men comics after acquiring the From the Ashes TPB on eBay) or if I will find that my tastes were a lot less discriminating when I was in junior high school. I remember thinking that G.I. Joe #21, the first all-silent issue, was viciously cool and still do. And this cover is still quite arresting to me, even if it has almost nothing to do with the comic book story inside: Sometimes, I also think of picking up one of the Devil's Due Joe trades, just to see what the old gang is up to, but I never quite get around to doing it. I tried reading the 25-cent #0 America's Elite book in the shop, and found I couldn't even spend that much on it, but picking up one or two of the limited arcs that Larry Hama did might be in the cards (and it took me a shockingly long time to realize that Hama was Japanese-American). Well, anyway, enough reminiscing. Face front and sound off on All Things Joe, CBC'ers! (EDIT: as a side note, do people read the G.I. Joe comic book news that makes its way to the TZ News pages? I link them seeing as it's still essentially an animation tie-in, as Transformers is, but never really got much sense if Joe fans noticed them.) -- Ed/Ace Mod Edit: Just for clarification, for the most part this is a General Talkback for the G.I. Joe comics, with the exception of G.I. Joe America's Elite #0-5 "A New Beginning" and G.I. Joe America's Elite #24-36 "World War III". Other than the comics in those Talkbacks, any other Joe comic is fair game.
