    Over the past few years, IDW has been attempting to find a new voice for their GI Joe comics, bringing in a series of writers to give their takes on the character, from Fred Van Lente to Karen Traviss, to the newest “Joe” scribe, Aubrey Sitterson. Sitterson has settled into the series now, and seems to be having a ton of fun writing the book, which comes through in the pages. Of course, having the likes of Giannis Milonogiannis, David Lafuente, and Aaron Conley illustrate the book doesn’t hurt, either. The book looks gorgeous, and the series feels like, perhaps, IDW has found a direction for the book for the foreseeable future. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the eighth issue of the series, due out on August 30th.

    It’s the battle you’ve been waiting for! No, not G.I. Joe versus Cobra… it’s Snake Eyes versus Quick Kick! When Snake Eyes steps out of bounds, only Quick Kick stands in the way of the ninja commando. Who is the team’s true martial arts champion? Well, you’ve gotta read to find out!
