Or – “Sssstilllll Oncccce Wasssss A Maaan…”
Even thirty years down the line, I still hold a fondness in my heart for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The action figures are one of the first toys that I remember actively wanting (they’re in storage in my garage right now, actually), I can still quote chapter and verse from the comics, and I have always loved the voicework of the late Chris Latta as Cobra Commander. When IDW announced that they were going to be anointing a new Commander in their ongoing Cobra series, I have to admit that I was intrigued. Would this FNG be able to the thrive in the shadow of the old Commander? Or will he forever be enshrined with Mike Nelson, The Sixth Doctor and Shemp Howard in the “I Want To Dig You But Hold Too Much Affection For Your Predecessor” file?
