Micro-Reviews: GHOST RIDER - Volume Two, Part Two

GHOST RIDER #11 (March 1991) Tex inking Larry Stroman!
Tex still overpowers, but some of Stroman’s personality remains. It’s a nice pairing.
Stacey asks Dan what’s up with his “George Michael” beard. Art doesn’t portray him as scruffy. And, as of “Freedom ’90” wasn’t that look dead for Michael? Stacey’s also asking about Dan’s “new leather jacket” (hasn’t he worn it since #1?)

Looking Back on Harley Quinn (and some other guy's) Debut Appearances.

This week on CBR, I'm examining Harley Quinn's introduction to the public. (Which is also the first notable Joker episode of Batman: The Animated Series.) Then, how the debut of a potential "major villain" just didn't have the same impact.

Micro-Reviews: GHOST RIDER - Volume Two, Part One

GHOST RIDER #8 (December 1990) Hey, it’s the return of…those guys.
Texiera is back to inking over Saltares. One of the less stylized issues, although it does look nice.

X-Men: The Animated Series - Looking Back on the Jim Lee Influence

This week on CBR, I attempt to catalogue every time the X-Men animated series drew inspiration from Jim Lee's art.  And why Marvel initially had a problem with this.

Justice League - John Stewart's Darkest Night

This week on CBR, I take another look at the Justice League animated series. It's from the Season One days, when the show was still finding its way. Hopefully, I'll be able to examine some of the more engaging episodes later.

X-Men: The Animated Series - What Did We Miss in Reruns?

This week at CBR, I look back on those times various scenes or performances were altered in the repeats.  For those of you who found this site while searching for the story behind Gladiator's swapped voices -- well, I don't have a complete answer, but I might've come close.

Micro-Reviews: G. I. JOE, Vol. 2, Part Three

G. I. JOE #18 (December 1983). Don’t know who did this cover. It’s not Michael Golden’s debut, is it?

More of Snake-Eyes and Kwinn. They track Scarface to Coney Island, of all places. Hama uses this scenery more than once; it also seemed to appeal to the commercial’s producers.

Kindle Worlds Is Dead (Soon).

So, if you'd like to check out my G. I. JOE novel at Amazon, you only have a few weeks. Amazon has ended the Kindle Worlds program and will be deleting all of the content in July. The book, as of now, is available at this link...

Since the Amazon page will be nuked soon, I thought I'd archive the reviews in this post.  Thanks to everyone who took the time to write a review. (I'll edit it to include any additional ones.)  I would've liked to contribute to a reading project, bumping up the number of JOE reviews on Amazon, but it wasn't meant to be...

5.0 out of 5 stars
A Great, Mature Continuation of the 80's Animated Series!

This was a great take on what could have been if Sunbow had continued with the GI Joe license! Gene's writing style really draws the reader in and makes you feel like you are right there in the middle of everything going on.

It was refreshing to see new takes on characters and see a few faces show back up. Overall, a great job and I highly recommend this if you're a fan of the classic GI Joe cartoon, but are looking for something with a little more depth and maturity.

When I first learned of Mr. Kendall's offering, I was excited to read it as a long time G.I.Joe fan. I'm beyond pleased to note that this title did not disappoint in the least bit! Mr. Kendall gives us the perfect "what if" scenario in G.I.JOE: Season 3.1. If you're a G.I.Joe fan, then consider this required reading.

Micro-Reviews: G. I. JOE, Vol. 2, Part Two

G. I. JOE #14 (August 1983). A more stylized Trimpe cover. Dan Green-style inks look nice over Trimpe.

The original TV commercial!

Micro-Reviews: G. I. JOE, Vol. 2, Part One

Marvel’s second G. I. JOE reprint volume. Another stunning cover from J. Scott Campbell. The series really starts to come together in this era. Every image on that cover represents a fan favorite from this run of issues.
