I try to keep it pretty quiet, but I love GI Joe. At the risk of sounding unpatriotic, I especially love their enemies, the forces of Cobra. I mean, sure, the Joes are America's daring, highly trained special missions force, but Cobra? That bunch of ruthless capitalists has a cadre of evil ninjas, a transforming castle and a dude who can telepathically control crocodiles. What's not to love? Aside from the part where they want to blow up the world, I mean.
In any case, my love of Cobra has made me pretty excited about Adam Riches' variant cover for IDW's GI Joe: A Real American Hero #212, drawn for Clearwater, Florida's Emerald City Comics, which features every single member of the evil organization from its thirty-year history. Yes: all of them.
When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.
Today, I'm putting on my magic sunglasses and thinking outside the box to bring you one of the weirdest (and best) gift ideas on my lift: Jonathan Lethem and Sean Howe's Deep Focus: They Live.
