Danger Girl G.I. Joe #5 is the epic conclusion to this fantastic mini-series. And I do mean EPIC! I honestly can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed a comic this much before. It’s like the first time that someone put chocolate and peanut butter together. It’s too good not to share with the world.

It’s no surprise that writer Andy Hartnell knows his Danger Girls. After all, he co-created them. BUT, what is surprising is that he knows the G.I. Joe characters so well. This book is what every Joe fan wanted. It’s an extension of the 80’s cartoon series. There’s no updating costumes…I mean, fatigues..for modern times. No black leather and black & gray camo. The Joes run around in their classic looks and you don’t even bat an eye at it. It’s totally believable, and acceptable at the same time.

This book doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not, and why should it? It’s just a great, fun story from start to finish. My only complaint? It’s the last issue. BUT, there’s definitely hope for another series, so start sending emails to IDW!!!

John Royle has a great style that really closely resembles J. Scott Campbell. And it fits this book like a glove. The art in this is NOT like you’ve ever seen in a G.I. Joe book, it’s total Danger Girl art from start to finish and it makes me wonder – why haven’t we seen this style in a regular Joe book? It certainly fits. It’s all-out action from start to finish. There’s about 3 panels of talking heads in here, and that’s it. The art here will take your breath away.

Good news: this issue is awesome. As awesome as the rest of the series has been. It never lets up until the very last panel. Bad news: this is the last issue of the series. Here’s hoping we don’t have to wait too long for Danger Girl/G.I. Joe 2!
