Snake Eyes #9

The new Cobra Commander has made his first strike on the world. Snake Eyes, Helix, Iceberg, and Alpine head to the jungles of Nanzhao following the invasion of C.O.B.R.A. into the the Southeast Asian country central to the worldwide drug trade.

Although the issue is Part Two of the new "Cobra Command" crossover taking place in G.I. JOE and Cobra as well as Snake Eyes I didn't read Part One and was still able to follow the story easily.

As regular readers of the comic would expect the issue is full of some crazy fun including Snake Eyes battling H.I.S.S. Tanks and armored Heavy Metal Exoskeletal War Machines fans of Avatar should recognize.

The final panel shows us Storm Shadow (YES!), will be joining the storyline possibly as soon as next issue. Although there wasn't quite enough here to get me to check out the rest of "Cobra Command" (at least not yet), once again writer Chuck Dixon gives us a Snake Eyes comic that's an awful lot of fun. And arist Alex Cal doesn't miss a beat stepping in for Casey Maloney.

Worth a look.
