Q: G.I. Joe: Where do I even begin with their myriad continuities? -- @Eric_R_Wilson

A: I've spent the past few weeks catching up on recent G.I. Joe comics with a stack of paperbacks that I picked up at HeroesCon, and while I've been really interested in seeing all the changes and new characters that set the IDW books apart from the original Marvel series, I'm still pretty surprised by this question. I mean, yes, there's a lot of G.I. Joe out there and a lot of different takes on that core idea, but when you get right down to it, it's no more complicated than your average superhero comic.

Which is to say that it's actually very complicated. Especially when the ninjas start getting involved.

Here’s The Thing, Episode 14: Why Is Destro So Great?

HTT14

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he dives into comics history to explain why you're wrong and he's right.

This week, a reader wants to know why Chris, who is often so opposed to romanticizing villains, loves Destro so much. What is it about an arms dealer who supplies a terrorist organization bent on world domination that makes him different from other villains -- and makes him so easy for us to identify with?

G.I. Joe tryout pages by Michel Fiffe

Considering that we've taken every opportunity to tell you all how great Copra is, I'm going to guess that most ComicsAlliance readers are already pretty familiar with the work of Michel Fiffe. Today, though, we all learned something new. It seems that before he launched his self-published tribute to Suicide Squad, Fiffe made one final effort to try breaking into mainstream comics by submitting two pages of tryout art for G.I. Joe to IDW.

That's right, everybody: Michel Fiffe has drawn Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow, Roadblock, the Baroness and Destro, and guess what? It is rad as hell. Check out the pages with his distinctive style in both pencils and inks below!
