just wanted to give people the heads up if they were waiting since i didnt think this was supposed to be out til the end of the month.
i found it(along with GIJOE vs COBRA the essential guide) in barnes and nobles on saturday.
well i told myself i was going to wait for the trade and i am glad i did. it reads very well with issues 0-6.
i like the slow build up they are doing just like they did with TF. I mean CC and SS and many others haven't appeared yet and i am still hungry for more and more story now!!
now i was about to pass on the Essential guide but i am glad i didnt.
even with a lackluster cover(i have no idea why they didnt use one of the other numerous peices throughout the book for the cover) you all really need to pick it up.
It covers all the story lines up to 2008. it is VERY comrehesnsive and weaves all the story lines together fairly well for each characters bio.
the information may be second nature to must of us but i still found it a very entertaining read while stuck at the airport this weekend.
the only down point is i wish they were able to go more indepth on more characters and vehicles.
it was kind of funny that alot of people kept asking to look through it and then said :man i remember having him/her" or "i can't wait for the movie"
whether it is used to refresh our own memories or preparing the next gen of joe fans i say pick the book up and flip though it at least.

I ordered the guide a while back and it's currently en route from Amazon. Can't wait to give it a read.
