Comics by Chance: Not So Random Edition – ‘G.I. Joe’

GI Joe A Real American Hero #16
G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #16

It was announced recently, on this very site, that I'll be co-writing, with John Barber, and drawing Transformers vs. G.I. Joe series for IDW. While my car was being inspected, I stopped at a nearby comics shop and bought $70 worth of dollar back issues of Larry Hama's Marvel G.I. Joe comic. It's since become one of my all-time favorite comics. I wish I would've read these sooner, but I'm kind of glad I didn't because now I can enjoy them for the first time.

Shockwave’s Got Major Plans In ‘Transformers: Dark Cybertron’ #1 [Preview]

Transformers Dark Cybertron 1 Preview
IDW

The casts of IDW's two flagship Transformers titles are set to collide this Wednesday with the release of Transformers: Dark Cybertron #1, the kickoff of a potentially apocalyptic event that could reshape the Autobot and Decepticon's homeworld forever... as in, like, leaving everybody dead. The issue is the first of a twelve-part series that will alternate between Transformers: Robots In Disguise and Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye each month through its conclusion in March. IDW has provided CA with a first-look at the beginning of the Transformers event, which is co-written by James Roberts and IDW senior editor John Barber, with layouts by Phil Jimenez, finished art by Andrew Griffith, prologue art by Brendan Cahill, and colors by Josh Perez and J.P. Bove. Transform and roll out past the cut to see Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons.

UM-1 Ultimetal Optimus Prime Displays The Anatomy Of An Autobot Leader

UM-1 Ultimetal Optimus Prime

Hasbro and Takara's larger Transformers Optimus Prime figures have been sporting Autobot Matrix of Leadership-storing chest chambers for years now, but Action Toys' upcoming UM-1 Ultimetal Optimus Prime digs even deeper by giving toy fans a look at the Generation 1 version of the heroic leader's entire anatomy from the inside out via removable plates. Turns out robots-in-disguise are full of their own mechanical guts and black stuff.

Transformers/G.I. Joe cover by Tom Scioli

At this point, Transformers and G.I. Joe have crossed over so many times that it takes something pretty special to get our attention, and today, IDW did exactly that with the announcement that the latest Transformers/G.I. Joe series will be drawn and co-written by the amazing Tom Scioli.

Seriously, whoever used one of their magic lamp wishes to make this happen, everyone here at ComicsAlliance sincerely thanks you. Check out the full cover, in which Scioli draws Destro and a few other, less important characters, below.

Keisuke Yamada Creates Banana Art That Will Haunt Your Nightmares (And Breakfasts)

Banana00

We all know that bananas and banana peels are excellent sources of potassium and physical comedy, respectively, but did you know that they could also be used as a medium for art that will alternately amuse you and haunt you to your grave? Neither did I until I saw the work of Japanese "banana engraver" Keisuke Yamada, who has carved presumably edible versions of all manner of pop culture figures and/or mind-bending horrors.

Check out a few of our favorites -- including characters from Attack on Titan, The Simpsons, Alien, Transformers, Castle in the Sky and Star Wars -- below, and don't worry: If one of these pops up in your breakfast tomorrow, you can always defend yourself with Yamada's flintlock pistol. The flintlock pistol is also carved from a banana.

I Built The Goofiest Transformer I Could And Construct-Bots Tech Still Made It Rad [SDCC 2013]

tfcbmain

Filling the play demands that exists between Hasbro's main line of Transformers action figures and its bricky KRE-O building sets have come new Construct-Bots, customizable -- and yes, fully-transformable -- new robots in disguise due at retail on August 1. CA hit the toymaker's build-a-bot breakfast this morning to see what the line had to offer and, despite my best efforts to make the goofiest figure possible, I discovered that this play system manages to handle even the ugliest designs with action figure aplomb.
