Review: G.I. Joe: Sierra Muerte #1

G.I. Joe: Sierra Muerte #1

Eccentric soldiers dominating bizarre terrorists are showcased in this bombastic account of G.I. Joe’s quintessential mission against Cobra! Through a beachside ambush, a compromised manhunt, and a revenge plan that backfires, America’s fighting elite risk life, love, and honor in this brutal globe-spanning adventure.

When I see Michel Fiffe‘s name on a comic property from my childhood, I immediately know it’s going to be a story that feels like it sprung from my childhood. Fiffe has a knack for putting together stories that feel like they’re a fan playing with the toys and just seeing where it goes. G.I. Joe: Sierra Muerte #1 is an example of that as the Joes take on Cobra in an over the top and at times humorous adventure.

Fiffe brings his usual enthusiasm to the story creating his own take that you can feel his love of the material. There are the usual ticks of Fiffe that includes a storytelling style that at times can be a bit choppy and action that can be as well. Again, this adds to the charm in a way making it feel like a child full of enthusiasm telling a story.

On top of Fiffe’s entertaining story, Chad Bowers delivers some history of G.I. Joe, in this case the varied geography of the fictional world.

It all comes together for a comic for those that love G.I. Joe and have fond memories creating battles of their own with their imagination.

COLLECTING ISSUES 0-5

“The name is Ash, but you can call me Mr. Williams!”

Ash finds out the hard way that major corporations frown upon the dismemberment of Deadites on company property and has to seek a new form of employment. What better place for the man with the chainsaw hand to be than in the public school system!

The Chosen One goes undercover as a substitute teacher to find out who is messing with the Necronomicon. Along the way he encounters a secret government agency called S.M.A.R.T. who are charged with ridding the world of the undead menace. Oh, and they have modeled themselves after the methods of everyone’s new favorite “cool” teacher.

Ash vs. The Army of Darkness collects issues #0-5 of the series written by Chad Bowers & Chris Sims (X-Men ’92, SwordQuest) and artists Mauro Vargas (Star Wars) & Sam Lotfi (DC New Talent Showcase).
