Cobra Special wins an MTV Best of 2009 Award.
The GI Joe Cobra Special which features the story of Tomax & Xamot told in a very unique way has just won the MTV Best One-Shot Issue Best of 2009 Award.
CONGRATS TO IDW & MIKE COSTA.
Here are the comments regarding the win from MTV:
BEST ONE-SHOT ISSUE
"GI Joe: Cobra: Special" #1 (IDW)
Licensed properties tend to fly under the radar for most readers who aren't a fan of the relevant property, but those who missed out on this issue overlooked a real gem. Writer Mike Costa scripts a story about the villainous twin brothers Tomax and Xamot Paoli that explores the dichotomy of the characters with a unique twist: the tale is is divided into two parts, with one offering Tomax's take on a shared experience, and the other offering Xamot's considerably different perspective on the same. The story is structured so that the book begins and ends with a similar set of scenes, tweaked slightly to indicate the characters' diverging points of view, and their two stories meet (and diverge) in a common scene halfway through the issue. The issue is one of the year's best not just because of the story itself, but because of the brilliant style in which the story's presented.
