Micro-Reviews: G. I. JOE, Vol. 5, Part One

The final Marvel collection of the original G. I. JOE comics. Serpentor enters, dividing fandom (who had no clue Cobra-La was coming.) #GIJoe@JScottCampbell
Funny that the cover features Joes Hama never showed much interest in. Sunbow fans would probably respond to this, tho. With the possible exception of Airtight, these were prominent Sunbow characters. Serpentor is also in his Sunbow colors; his cape (and often cowl) was always green in the comics, for some reason.

How Spawn Transitioned From Comics to (Very R-Rated) TV

I'm going back to the pilot for Todd McFarlane's Spawn this week on CBR. It's very possible I'll cover the entire six-episode season, if there's interest.

When Batman: The Animated Series Confronted ... the 1990s

This week on CBR, I'm going back to the debut of the most '90s of the Animated villains. Plus, his official canon appearance, not long after. Watch as I attempt to avoid calling him "Lockdown," as I am wont to do for some reason.

October 2018 Link Round-Up

I thought I'd list all of my recent articles in one spot, for convenience's sake. My most recent CBR posts include...

The Batman: The Animated Series episode even Bruce Timm can't watch.

A look back on Pryde of the X-Men, the failed X-pilot of the '80s.

An article I have no idea if people are interested in, but I greatly enjoyed. Remember The Maxx on MTV?

Finally, an examination of Kevin Conroy's history in the role of Batman.

And, in case you weren't aware, I've been going back to the earliest animated commercials for Marvel's G. I. Joe comics over at Gentlemen of Leisure. Hopefully, more of those will be appearing soon.

I. JOE continuity!
