Ask Chris #205: The Worst Story From The Best Writer
Q: Hey Chris, what's the worst story from the best writer? -- @starr226 A: I've gotten this question a few times over the past few weeks, and it's one that's really interesting to me for a few reasons, the most important of which being that nobody in the history of comics has a perfect record. Once you put out more than, say, four comics, everyone from Jack Kirby on down has stunk up the room at least once in their career, and it can be really fun looking at something to try to figure out exactly why something doesn't work, when everything else from that particular creator works so well. For me, though, as easy as it would be to hit a soft target like Alan Moore and Scott Clark's Spawn/WildC.A.T.S: Devil Day, the biggest and most surprising drop will always be Larry Hama and Scott McDaniel's surprisingly terrible run on Batman.

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.

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

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

Before the world was trained to think of faceless armies of armored bad guys as expendable clones (thanks a lot, Star Wars prequels!), the throngs of fandom were content to watch their favorite heroes lay waste to scores of thugs they just assumed were the grown up versions of the bullies nobody liked in high school...
