Most longtime G.I. Joe fans would probably agree that the recent film simply did not do justice to the G.I. Joe brand or storyline (or, for that matter, the intelligence of G.I. Joe fans). Fortunately, at roughly the same time as the film came out, fans were treated in quick succession to G.I. Joe Resolute (the anime-influenced animation special, well worth checking out), Larry Hama's Origins series, and now G.I. Joe: Cobra, which is NOT to be confused with G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (a.k.a. G.I. Joe: The Downfall of an Entire Franchise at the Hands of a Hack Hollywood Director).
This is a dark, brooding, character-driven gem of a story about a Joe gone so deep undercover that his morality has not merely been compromised; it has been obliterated. And quite deliberately, it turns out. I won't say more so as not to ruin the surprise, but this is a lovely bit of writing. Costa and Gage are thus far the only people to pick up the reins of the G.I. Joe franchise who have been able to rival, and even surpass, the intelligence, depth, and complexity of the G.I. Joe universe that Larry Hama created.

Very highly recommended. A bit surprising that Hasbro allowed this, but also a very good sign. It's been so well received that IDW is doing a second mini-series that picks up where this one left off. More good news.

If you're not a G.I. Joe fan at all, this book stands on its own quite well as a nice bit of film noir in comic book form. You might find some of the character names rather odd, but other than that, you won't feel you're reading something based on a line of children's toys.

For true, adult fans of G.I. Joe you could not ask for more. I was surprised and shocked at how well written this graphic novel was.

as a warning this is NOT for small children.

The Cobra series is amongst the best comic book series I've read in quite some time. The stories make you interested in IDWs Cobra terrorist structure, and care about characters that have been passed over since they were conceived (like Chuckles). It is worth the read from beginning to end.

If HBO produced a gritty and dark espionage thriller set in the G.I.Joe universe this would be it. I would not recommend it for children though due to gritty content. Overall it is an amazing story. KCCO.
