THE FALL OF G.I. JOE opens six years from the last time you saw the team, and the world's political map has changed big-time. The Joes are fighting for their survival as a unit in a world that thinks it doesn't need them anymore; and their biggest threats are on the home team. It's my usual mix of action, thoroughly dirty politics, characters whose morality you'll argue about, and the world as seen from the sharp end of the war, with some fabulous art from Steve Kurth. Steve’s character studies of Isaac Craft and Grigor Rashidov are some of the best stuff out there.UPDATE:

. It's also available on iTunes. (Ep 129.)UPDATE, March 2015:
issue 8 is the last one in this run, alas. I'd planned 12, but IDW cancelled the series at very short notice (when I'd finished issue 7) so I had to wrap it up prematurely in one final issue. It's not quite the story I wanted to tell, obviously, because that would have taken all twelve issues, so the end isn't quite as I envisaged it a few issues earlier. But it manages to resolve some storylines and leaves others open in case IDW ever wants to pick them up at some point in the future.
The complete series is available in paperback
