G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #268

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #267 is heavy on action as the Joes scramble to recover the kidnapped Throwdown (who Cobra Commander erroneously believes is the original Snake Eyes).

In the air battle to retrieve their former comrade we see several of the franchise's best known fighters including the Skystriker, the Cobra Rattler, and the Night Raven. In the confusion, Throwdown is able to break his bonds offering a more close-quarters view of the escape attempt. Despite all the action, the Joes fail to retake their friend who remains on course to Cobra Commander and Dr. Mindbender.

One finale note, there is an interesting scene the aftermath of the abduction where Dawn Moreno picks up on of Snake Eyes' swords (which Throwdown has been using) and is shocked to discover just how natural it feels within her hands. If Cobra meant to capture Snake Eyes, I think the grabbed the wrong Joe. Worth a look.
