COMIC REVIEW: The A-Team: War Stories: B.A. (IDW)


It has been over 25 years since the A-team has premiered on television. The A-team has survived history through reruns. Coming soon to theaters is a new movie with new actors filling these roles of our childhood vigilante heroes. The A-teams premiers on the comic book shelves and in this issue B.A. Baracuss stars in his own story.


This is a one shot story of our Mohawk wearing anti-hero, B.A. Baracus. This is the tale of his downfall as a soldier in the military. The story is simple and not to compacted for the reader. The story has just the right amount of violence and plot to cover the 32 pages. This is a great little story to tide a person over until the movie premier within the next few months.

The artwork is surprisingly good for this story, it is similar to the current G.I Joe artwork in their comic books. If you are a fan of IDW military stories you will not be let down by this short story of B.A. Baracus. There will be two covers on your local news stands. One will be a picture of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and the other will be a portrait drawing of him as B.A. Baracus.

Don’t watch reality television, read more books.
