Tomorrow kicks off Michel Fiffe‘s GI Joe Sierra Muerte, a new series claiming to be “a brilliant, contemporary and loving homage to all things G.I. Joe.” IDW has released a preview of the first issue, and it goes right for the spirit of the early days of GI Joe comics, with Cobra Commander, the Baroness, and Major Bludd raiding the weapons stash of deceased Cobra mad scientist Dr. Venom.
It looks like Venom has left behind your typical Cobra fare…but we also learn that Venom had a partner, and that partner is still at large.
Classic Joes and Cobra villains in their classic costumes, classic themes…what more could you ask for? How about backup material exploring Larry Hama‘s epic GI Joe run?
GI Joe Sierra Muerte #1 hits stores tomorrow.
