A new GI Joe series from IDW?

IDW's got another GI Joe series - or miniseries in the works, by an indie writer/artist named Michel Fiffe:
IDW Publishing announced a brand new G.I. JOE series, G.I. JOE: Sierra Muerte by creator Michel Fiffe. Fiffe, who is the creator of the indie comic Copra, will write, draw, letter, and color this new G.I. JOE series.

IDW describes the series as “a bombastic-yet-personal, gritty-yet-colorful account of Hasbro’s iconic G.I. Joe team’s quintessential mission.”
It may be better - and less politically infected - than Aubrey Sitterson's catastrophous series or two (Scarlett's Strike Force, let's recall, lasted a paltry 3 issues unfinished), but from the artwork samples provided here (via Superhero Hype), it still looks like very mediocre artwork, right down to the lettering job. More like a 3rd grade school student's notebook sketch.

Assuming they're avoiding overt leftist politics this time round, that might be the saving grace, but otherwise, with such dull character designs, I just don't see how this'll salvage IDW's already failing business.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
