Snake Eyes #10

The "Cobra Command" crossover continues as Cobra destroys the opium fields of Nanzhao and Storm Shadow's ninja teams take out the U.N. trops helping with the civilian evacuation. Realizing there's no one else for the job Snake Eyes take it upon himself, with Helix in tow, to go deep into the jungles of Nanzhao and find his blood brother.

As Snake Eyes and Helix go deep into the jungles we learn the Storm Shadow's latest cat-and-mouse game involving Snake Eyes are not part of the new Cobra Commander's master plan. Meanwhile, the rest of the Joes at Fort Baxter try to determine Cobra's endgame and what they are after by depopulating the country, destroying its drug supply, and leaving the highways and utilities intact.

There's plenty of ninja action here and more than a little foreshadowing that we're going to get a major throwdown between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow before "Cobra Command" ends. And we've still got plenty of unanswered questions as to what the new Cobra Commander is really after and what plans he has for the dirty nuclear bombs Destro is seen unloading in the comic's final panel. Worth a look.
