Gary Collinson reviews G.I. Joe: Special Missions #8....
"A peace-promoting diplomat is gunned down and barely escapes with his life. The world watches as the man lies at death's door in a high security facility. Cobra is watching as well and mounts an all-out cyber-assault to take their target down once and for all. Mainframe and Dial-Tone are the last line of defense in a deadly chess game with Cobra's entire cyber-war division. The Joes pray for peace but program for war in Denial Of Service!"
Coming off the back of two multi-part story arcs, Idw's G.I. Joe: Special Missions reverts to the old Marvel Comics formula of stand-alone tales for issue #8, as G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero artist S L Galant joins regular writer Chuck Dixon for 'Denial of Service', which sees the team trying to prevent Cobra from carrying out an assassination on a United Nations »

Gary Collinson reviews G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #2....
"Snakes And Tigers! A break-in at a top-secret research base sends the covert G.I. Joe team into action—and Chameleon, eager to redeem herself, takes charge! But what she and Flint uncover will lead the team straight into the jaws of an enemy unlike any other: a hidden force within Cobra and impossible to track... unless Chameleon risks everything to draw it out of the shadows."

Before you see "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" in theaters this weekend, there's a little something you should know about the beloved 1980s G.I. Joe cartoon. Sure, it's about an elite force of American soldiers taking on the evil terrorism of Cobra. But for the most part, the show was next level crazy. The only show that could potentially out-crazy "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" is "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe," and that series isn't even set on Earth.
For a show ostensibly about real American heroes, "G.I. Joe" brought the bonkers. Narrowing the series' craziest episodes down was a hard task (almost as hard as the genetic pillaging Cobra undertook to create their master, Serpentor). Here are the five craziest episodes of "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero."
