G.I. Joe Comics: The Amazing World and Life of Larry Hama

silent-interlude

G.I. Joe: Retaliation makes its theatrical debut on June 29th, with plenty of licensed G.I. Joe comics on the way from IDW Publishing to greet it. Though the first movie wasn't that well-reviewed, it was still highly watched, and the excitement over the sequel has grown steadily since the undeniably awesome Superbowl trailer. Before the fervor builds to a level that goes on to devour the earth and stars, let's take a moment to appreciate the work of the man who made the whole G.I. Joe phenomenon possible: artist and writer Larry Hama.

Go to enough "How to Write Comics" panel discussions and you're sure to hear several pieces of advice over and over again: how to build a plot, create complete characters, dramatic rise and blah blah blah everything else you should realistically already know. The most important piece of advice is the one that only comes up at the best panels: go live a life. Go out into the world and learn and experience things, so you'll actually have something to write about. For living proof, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better example in comics than Larry Hama.

New ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Toy Images Roll Out [Toy Fair 2012]

gijoeretaliationmovietoyfairmain

We've liked what we've seen of G.I. Joe: Retaliation quite a bit so far. After all, it's hard to argue with a movie that literally blows up everything horrible about the first film and replaces it with, well, The Rock. Hasbro's upcoming line of 3.75" toys seem to echo this summer's Joe sequel improvements with figures packe
