Tales From The Cobra Wars by Max Brooks – Book Review [Shadowhawk]

GI-Joe-Tales-From-The-Cobra-Wars

Shadowhawk reviews IDW’s first full prose collection of short stories set within its G.I.Joe (licensed) franchise.

“Some of the best G.I.Joe fiction I’ve read to date, Tales From The Cobra Wars is a top-notch collection of short stories from some really talented writers.” ~The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 15.05.2013

04 Batman Knightfall

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for May.

“The only disappointment this time around was Matt Fraction’s first arc for The Mighty Thor. Batman: Knightfall Volume 1 was simply amazing in terms of its deep-seated psychological impact while Fables Volume 2 was the perfect successor to the first volume, and G.I.Joe: Cobra Volume 2 continued to impress with its character exploration of Chuckles.” ~Shadowhawk

Action Comics #19 sees Andy Diggle’s short run go out with a bang, Jeff Lemire establishes Green Arrow as one of the best of the New 52, while Jeph Leob delivers another strong issue of Nova and All New X-Men remains one of the best currently ongoing Marvel Now! comics.” ~Bane of Kings

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for May.

“After the excellent Rebirth, No Fear sadly fails fails to stir any interest. IDW,s G.I.Joe reboot goes full steam ahead with Chuck Dixon’s second G.I.Joe volume while Mike Costa and Christos Gage turn out an absolute cracker with the first volume of Cobra. And against all expectations, the Captain Marvel reboot disappoints spectacularly.” ~Shadowhawk

Aquaman is consistent whilst Justice League falters, and Superior Spider-man has a really strong opening four issues.” ” ~Bane of Kings

Comics Round-up 15.04.2013

G.I.Joe Vol.1 IDW

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for April.

“Taking a step back in time from JMS’ Odyssey Vol.1 to read the first post-Infinite Crisis Wonder Woman title proved to be a wise choice, as did going back to IDW’s first reboot of the G.I.Joe franchise. The new version of Spider-man arch-villain Venom proved to be a major disappointment and Zenescope’s first collected volume of their fairy tale reimaginings ended up being more promising than I’d expected.” ~Shadowhawk

A mixed bag from DC with Jeff Lemire’s Green Arrow being spectacular but the first volume of All Star Western falling well short. On the other hand, Marvel hits it out of the park with a superb opening start to the adventures of Miles Morales, the new Ultimate Comics Spider-man.” ~Bane of Kings

Shadowhawk, Bane of Kings and Bellarius review a variety of comics titles from across genres and publishers in the second installment of an entirely new reviews series for The Founding Fields.

“Another rock-solid reading experience, spent with some truly enjoyable comics.” ~Shadowhawk

A fantastic mix of superheroes and zombies. Coupled with fantastic art and fantastic storylines, these are issues that are unmissable.” ~Bane of Kings

“A reasonable start but is driven more by its explosions and situations than its characters.” ~Bellarius

GI_Joe_CobraCommand_Vol1

Shadowhawk reviews his first G.I.Joe comics title, written by Chuck Dixon and published by IDW Publishing. This is a trade paperback issue which includes issues #9 of all three ongoing series of G.I. JOE, Cobra, and Snake Eyes, as well as G.I. JOE #10..

“Intriguing redesign that stays faithful to the old Larry Hama-era version at times, Cobra Command is a must read for any fan of the setting and the characters. This is G.I.Joe for the modern age.” ~The Founding Fields
