I’m not going to lie. I’m a huge fan of the crazy antics of the 80’s classic TV show. I grew up watching the reruns every summer in the mornings. And now on the brink of their first big screen adventure, IDW is giving all us A-Team fans one shots that focus on the members of our favorite mercenary team. First up, team leader Hannibal.
Replacing Vietnam with Iraq, we find our master of disguise; John Smith aka Hannibal, on a mission to capture and take back a biochemist to the US for debriefing. But like anything that involves a member of the A-Team, things don’t quite go as planned. Explosions, gun battles and car chases ensue before Hannibal can get his “cargo” to safety.
Written by comic veteran Chuck Dixon with Erik Burnham and art by Hugo Petrus. I really enjoyed this first one-shot which keeps the charm and action of the TV series while still feeling new and fresh. I recommend this to all A-Team fans as well as anyone who’s considering going to see the movie. You won’t be disappointed.
