I still don’t know why I’m reading this, but I feel a strange compulsion to do so. I’m not a big Transformers fan. I haven’t paid attention to GI Joe since I was a kid. But for some reason I dig this mash-up.
This issue brought in more of the crew from MASK as well. And mostly it was a fight between them and some of the Transformers. It was a little tough for me to follow at times. There’s lots of characters that I’m not familiar with.
I wouldn’t say that this is a great comic or anything. But yeah. For some reason I feel like reading it.
I’m reading this because I don’t know why. I have paid no attention to GI Joe or Transformers since I was like ten. I’ve not seen those Michael Bay movies or anything. But for some stupid reason I wanted to read this first issue. I guess because I think it’s so surreal.
Basically IDW has created a Hasbro-verse where all of their toys play together. It’s interesting in the sense that maybe when you were a kid you mixed and matched your toys regardless of franchise? I think I was more boring than that personally. GI Joes fought GI Joes. Turtles were strictly for other Turtles.
But ugh, I do kind of love when franchises are overlapped and retrofitted. Y’know how Alien and Predator used to be separate things but now those two universes are one? I love that.
This first issue was actually not that bad. It set up an intro; it gave us a conflict; there was even the death of a major character which we’ve learned all big crossovers should have. Right? I don’t know. My mind isn’t blown or anything, but I’ll probably check out the next issue. Why not? It’s a short series if I’m just sticking to the main story.
