NYCC 2014: Snake Eyes Turns Cobra and Jem Brings Misfits to IDW

If you thought one more 80's revival would make 'now' feel more like the awesome 80's rather than like the 20-10's, brace yourself; Jem and The Holograms are coming to comics via IDW Publishing. No creative team or launch date were named in the exclusive tease, but with a movie also in the works, you don't need to be Synergy to have a guess at the 'when'.

Sticking with Hasbro licences, silent assassin, Snake Eyes will yell 'COBRRRAAAAA' when he takes on Scarlett's revamped Joe squad in Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra. Written by Mike Costa and drawn by Paolo Villanelli, the January debut will stay mysterious as to whether 'Eyes has gone rogue, although his former allies may be all black and blue (if not dead) by the time they find out.

What do you think?


  1. I love that JEM cover so hard. Going to have to get this for the girls. Totally not for me. *ahem*

  2. Sure it's not. I bet you still refer to all the evil people in the news as 'Misfits' because what Jem taught you is so ingrained :)

    1. I also believe illiteracy can be solved in 30 minutes.
