Unrepentant Evil Bastards: Writer Paul Allor Reveals The Secret History of Cobra In ‘G.I. Joe’ [Interview]

G.I. Joe: Siren Song, IDW

When Paul Allor's "secret history of Cobra" story was first announced by G.I. Joe comics publisher IDW, I immediately took notice. The idea of a long history for Cobra that would see ninja and pirate versions of Cobra Commander was something so amazing that I was shocked it had never been done before. It turned out, however, that this long history was only a part of what Allor would get to do, moving from that complicated secret history into a lean, thrilling adventure for the G.I Joe team.

Now, with Allor's run alongside artists Steve Kurth, Alex Cal, S.L. Gallant, Shawn Lee, Robert Atkins and Chris Evenhuis being collected this week in a paperback called G.I. Joe: Siren Song, we spoke to Allor to find out about how much of Cobra Commander's secret history was true, why he built the story around a mother trying to save her child, and just what it was about Big Boa that needed a comeback.

IDW To Publish First Ever Collection Of Golden Age Wonder Woman Newspaper Comic Strips

WW00

In the Golden Age of Comic Books, newspaper strips were still considered to be the dominant and far more respectable form of sequential art. They had, after all, been around for a while before Action Comics #1 rolled around and introduced the superhero, producing enduring and beloved characters like Flash Gordon, Prince Valiant, and even helping to popularize Mickey Mouse. As a result, the creators of these upstart superhero comics were pretty keen to get in on the deal, resulting in newspaper strips based on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, often produced by the creators of the original comic books.

The Batman and Superman strips have been reprinted over the years, but the Wonder Woman newspaper strip, which ran from 1943 to1944, never has, until now. IDW Publishing has announced that it's collecting the strip's entire two-year run into a single hardcover, set to be released later this year.

Preview: IDW & Cartoon Network’s ‘Super Secret Crisis War!’ #1 And Comic-Con Cosplay Cover

Super Secret Crisis War #1 Variant Cover by Derek Charm

I watched a lot of Cartoon Network in the '90s (and the 2000s, and the 2010s, but that's beside the point), and I distinctly remember thinking that if there was one thing that could really improve shows like Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack and Dexter's Laboratory, it would be throwing all the characters together into one big fight against robots, preferably while hanging out at San Diego's Comic-Con International.

Fortunately for me, my dreams have once again made reality thanks to Derek Charm's variant cover for IDW's upcoming Cartoon Network crossover, Super Secret Crisis War! Not only will the series tell the tale of a crossover between the shows' heroes and villlains written by Charm and legendary writer Louise Simonson with art by Charm, but there's a SDCC variant cover featuring characters from the shows engaging in that most time-honored Comic-Con tradition: Cosplay! Check out an exclusive preview below.

IDW Announces Judge Anderson Series By Matt Smith And Carl Critchlow

Judge Anderson, IDW

Since they acquired the license for Judge Dredd, IDW has been doing some pretty fantastic stuff with it. Between Duane Swiercynski and Nelson Daniel's ongoing Judge Dredd and miniseries projects like Douglas Wolk and Ulises Farinas's Mega-City Two, they've put out some incredibly entertaining stories, bringing Dredd to a new audience that may not be familiar with his roots in the pages of 2000 AD. Now they're expanding the line beyond Dredd himself.

IDW announced this week that they're launching Anderson: Psi Division, a new series set before the events of the ongoing series that will focus on Judge Cassandra Anderson, written by 2000 AD editor Matt Smith with art by long-time 2000 AD artist Carl Critchlow.

Hire This Woman: Writer Heather Nuhfer

Untitled-1

In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”

Busy writer Heather Nuhfer has worked on all-ages properties such as Fraggle Rock, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and Strawberry Shortcake. She's also written The Simpsons and Vampire Diaries comics.

IDW

Those of you who haven't kept up with IDW's My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic comic may not be aware of this, but the junk has gotten real over the last few issues. In the latest story arc by CA favorites Katie Cook and Andy Price, everyone's favorite ponies have found themselves in a Star Trek style parallel universe, where the good guys are bad, Applejack is a member of the pony Mafia, and Princess Celestia is eeeeeeeeevil.

But those aren't the only revelations they're providing. This week's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #19 also explores the rarely seen past of (good) Celestia, in that shady period of time between exiling her sister to the moon and taking Twilight Sparkle as her student.

Activision/IDW

If you don't have kids or aren't something of one yourself, Skylanders is a weird display with toys that you occasionally see in the video game section of Target. For kids, they're a super-popular mix of toys and video games. How popular? Basically the "new" Pokémon. And now it's coming to comics for the first time.
