G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #267

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #267 offers the pay-off to the last issue's tease of sleeper cell Cobra units waiting to strike just outside of Staten Island, New York. Although the initial ruse of sneaking in a team using tanker trucks doesn't go off without a hitch, leading to far more casualties than Cobra expected, in the end Cobra makes it down to the bunker and makes it out with their prize - Snake Eyes.

Given what was teased in the last issue and here, I expected the young papergirl to have a larger role in unraveling Cobra's plans. Instead she turns into just another bystander of the sneak attack that involves an absurd amount of troops and troops and H.I.S.S. tanks in order to claim the source of Cobra Commander's latest obsession.

With Throwdown (and not the original) now captured by Cobra, with the Joes be able to save him before Cobra learns the truth or will learning the truth turn the Commander's attention towards Dawn Moreno whose mind houses the secrets he covets? Worth a look.
