G.I. JOE #15

Following the pattern of IDW's other JOE series, the current main G.I. JOE comic comes to an end with G.I. JOE #15. Continuing the story of Cobra's newest asset Siren, the JOEs arrive at a Cobra training base and indoctrination center where her son and dozens of other recruits have been brainwashed by the terrorist organization.

Far from wrapping up Siren's story, G.I. JOE #15 at least resigns her to her fate as her future is tied to that of her son who wants no help from Cobra's enemies. The comic is highlighted by some strong art by Steve Kurth, a throwdown between Roadblock and Big Boa, and Hashtag struggling to see the rescue of several children, but not Siren or her son, as anything other than a failure.

The comic certainly leaves several questions from the series left unanswered (such as Cover Girl's concerns and suspicions about Duke) as IDW closes the book on the last of their JOE titles heading into this Fall's "Fall of G.I. JOE." Worth a look.
