G.I. Joe #2 (2014)

This comic shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. A pure adrenaline freight train that blasts through the page and into your psyche! I am honestly surprised, as I was not expecting much from a G.I. Joe comic, but this is one of the best military espionage comics being produced. This issue has so much backstabbing and covert op stuff happening that you're likely to get extremely confused, but it all makes sense once you get to the end. And you will get to the end, because this comic is like a good book, you can't put it down.

Part of the reason why that is has to do with it's writer, Karen Traviss, and her extensive background in novel writing. They try to hock her books at the end of the comic, but can you blame them after the roller coaster you were just put through at her hand? She's almost too good at writing from a grizzled male's perspective, you'd think she was a war vet. I haven't gone too deep into her personal history, but I'm assuming she's not a vet and probably has extensive experience in researching these things. Regardless, she hits all the right notes and the dialogue is unmatched. Great reading.

The other part of why you can't put this comic down is the art by Steve Kurth. It's rough and it's clean, an amazingly uncommon thing to do, but it works with the source material. Everything is so detailed as well, I mentioned in my review for the first issue about the little nuances on desks and screens, same thing here. The guy is a serious talent and I'm glad to have caught on to some of his hidden tricks that lie in wait throughout the comic. Awesome art.

Man, pick this up. It's a great comic, G.I. Joe or not.
