Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow #19

"Target: Snake Eyes" comes to a head as both Helix and the Coil seek out the Arashikage Clan's home in Cambodia, although for very different puproses. Helix continues her search for Snake Eyes only to be taken down by Storm Shadow and his ninja while Serpentor and the Soft Master lead the Coil into Arashikage's home hoping to wipe out the entire clan for good.

The issue is filled with action including the new Cobra Commander's attempt to kill the Baroness for her recent failure, Snake Eyes squares off against Rika's son who wants revenge for what he sees as Snake Eyes' traitorous actions that led to her death, Helix temporarily holding her own against the ninja, and Snake Eyes coming face-to-face with a betrayed Storm Shadow.

Another strong issue that sets up a possible Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow showdown in the next issue of G.I. JOE or perhaps another temporary reliance as the ninja clan will need all the help it can get to survive Cobra's latest attempt to destroy them. Worth a look.
