COVER SHOTS: IDW's April Solicitations

In April, the revamp of IDW's G.I.Joe line takes centre stage with the death of Cobra Commander. Yeah, there's still Godzilla, Transformers and co. - but what's gonna' top that? Well these four covers from the IDW April solicits are sure going to try.

COVER OF THE MONTH: G.I. Joe Cobra Civil War #0 - Gabriele Dell'Otto Forget who takes over from the big C.C when he takes a dirt nap, all you can think of looking at this Dell'Otto number is 'Damn - hurry up Snake Eyes #1!'

CLOSE CONTENDERS: (Click to enlarge) JK Snyder III - Infestation #2, Eric Powell - Godzilla: Monster World #2, and Nick Runge - Angel #44. For the full rundown on IDW in April click the jump.

  2. nice Snake Eyes Cover..and am glad Snake Eyes will finally get his own on-going series and i know is in good hands with Chuck Dixon & Robert Atkins. I think i also like the heading of the new G.I.joe revamp. Mike Costa and christos gage COBRA series changed the whole scenario of the g.i.joe universe

  3. Snake Eyes always was the best of the best. All the way back to the silent issue of the original series. That's a framable cover if ever I saw one.

  4. oh definitely framable Random. IFF have you seen the new show on HUB? It looks like the Joe team has gone rogue because Cobra is masquerading as a legitimate corporation and has run them underground.

  6. Thanks guys - glad you all like the cover as much as I - that Gabriele Dell'Otto is one mighty talented dude!

    Like you IFF I'm glad he's headed the solo way too. While I think Chuckles might take over as CC I'd pay for it to be the Baroness...

  7. My head is still spinning on who i think might take over, considering Chuckles main aim to destroy Cobra from within but also the Baroness is a very strong contender..so i am sure one of them will be the one new cobra commander
