    I was looking for some movie 2 news when I stumbled upon this. I couldn't find a thread here, so I think this must be new. Amazon lists "G.I. Joe: Tales from the Cobra Wars" : Amazon.com: G.I.

    My opinion is that this book contains the prequel comics from G. I. Joe : Rise Of Cobra. Hold on, wait... Flint? Nah! Not a movie book then.

    Very similar to Transformers: Tales Of The Fallen.

    There was a pretty long short story from this collection in the recent Cobra special #2. Was a good read.

    Aw, crap! Ya know I totally forgot to go back and read that prose work in the back of the second Cobra Special. (Which was awesome, btw.) I got myself all wrapped up in the LeCarre classic "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy". I'll hav e to make time to go back and read it this weekend. If I like it, I'll definitely pick this up.

    I've been thinking that someone should do a series of Novels, or Novellas centered around the Crimson Guard. Each book could be titled "Fred (insert roman numeral)" and be the story of that Fred's infiltration of our society. His cover, and how he completes his mission. Hell, if I ever stop reading, and start writing maybe I'll submit some. lol

    Not sure about that. I was referring to the second Cobra Special, feature Erica LeTienne aka Chameleon. In the back of that comic, there is the preview of the prose.
