G.I. JOE #13

As with the last issue, G.I. JOE #13 continues the forced pairing of the Baroness with Cobra's newest asset Siren who has a talent for spinning a tale to fit a particular time and situation allowing Cobra to boast about the ancient organization's shrouded history with everyone from Somali Pirates to the Yakuza.

As with G.I. JOE #12, Along with Alex Cal doing the art for Siren and the Baroness' movements in the present the various tales the Siren spins are each presented by a different artist which continues to give the comic the feel of an anthology not dissimilar to Dynamite Entertainment's current Legends of Red Sonja comic, and the last of which teaches the Baroness a valuable lesson about being careful what you ask for.

How much truth each of the Siren's stories actually contains is kept purposefully vague, but its obvious the woman has a gift that Cobra has no intention of giving up anytime soon as she learns a valuable lesson as well when Cobra finds the perfect pressure point to force Siren to continue her work. Worth a look.
