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.

After reading Danger Girl G.I. Joe #2, I’d advise you to breathe into a paper bag, put your head between your knees, whatever it is you need to do to catch your breath. This issue, as was the first, is quite a roller coaster ride!

Andy Hartnell has proven himself time and again that he can write Danger Girl. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that he’s the BEST writer of Danger Girl that there ever has been and ever will be. You can imagine my surprise, then, at how well written this issue is, because the Danger Girl team is BARELY IN IT!!! That’s right, it’s 90% G.I. Joe and 200% awesome. The thing that I love about Hartnell’s work here is that he chooses the continuity that EVERYONE knows when it comes to G.I. Joe – the cartoon continuity. And from there he drops Abbey Chase and friends smack dab into the action. VERY well played.

Star Trek Legion of Super-Heroes 2Star Trek – Legion of Super-Heroes #2
Written by Chris Roberson
Pencils by Jeffrey Moy

Colors by Romulo Fajardo, Jr.
Covers by Phil Jimenez, Steve Lightle, Gabriel Rodriguez
IDW Publishing
Release Date: November 9th, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

In this second issue of Star Trek Legion of Super-Heroes, the story is primarily the characters figuring out just WHAT is wrong with their situations. While the first issue was mostly setting up the characters — who they were, where they come from, what there motivation is — this issue delves deeper into the story about just why things are the was they are.

Writer Chris Roberson does a fantastic job on characterization again in this issue. I’m a bigger Star Trek fan than Legion fan, but he doesn’t make the Legion characters seem at all foreign to me. He moves the story along at a good pace, lots of action, lots of reveals, and manages to make the whole thing NOT boring like so many crossover comics are. This is not a “wait for them to fight” book, it tells a valid story that is completely believable in both universes.

OK, I’ll be honest with you, my audience. This is by FAR the hardest review that I’ve had to write for Geeks of Doom to date, for two simple reasons. One, admittedly, my knowledge of the Legion of Super-Heroes is somewhat limited. And two, the way this comic is written, it’s going to be almost impossible for me not to go into spoiler territory. But, I’ll do my best.

First, my hat’s off to writer Chris Roberson. He’s done a great job of taking two mega popular franchises and made them blend seamlessly into one cohesive, fast-paced, entertaining story.
