G.I. JOE COBRA: VOL. 01
GAGE & COSTA! Aaron and Mike’s favorite book, and Mike wasn’t even old enough to remember G.I. Joe! Gritty hardcore realistic military espionage with more action than “24” and Chuckles has more personality than Jack Bauer. He’s going deep undercover in a terrorist group scarier than the Al Qaeda: Cobra. Fast paced, smart, and even funny- everything you want in a comic! It just happens to be a G.I. Joe comic.

It’s like Little House on the Prairie but with twice the murder-rape (same amount of incest).
Mike sez: If you don’t read Crossed you’re nothing but a GIRB: GAY INCEST RAPE BABY
