Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #3

Most of G.I. JOE: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #3 isn't spent with Snake Eyes, although we do get some of Chameleon feeding the former JOE intelligence to help his search, but instead the story is mainly focused on his target: the former Cobra Commander's son. We get a long look at Billy's life off the grid in Thailand with Ronin his only friend and protector.

Along with a look at Billy's nomadic current lifestyle G.I. JOE: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #3 also gives readers a glimpse of his life as Cobra Commander's son. The only big action scene takes place during one of these flashbacks showing us why Billy has turned his back on the life he was born into.

Although lighter on action than last month's issue, after Billy steps in to commit a foolishly heroic action things go from bad to worse as both assassins and the Arashikage Clan send men after him setting up what you would assume would be an action-heavy fourth issue. And of course we still have a Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow confrontation to come before the series concludes. Worth a look.
