G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #269

"Snake Hunt" continues as Laura 343 and her team successfully deliver the captured Throwdown (who Cobra still mistakenly believe is the original Snake Eyes) to Cobra Commander and Dr. Mindbender. The short tour Laura receives of the impressive facility suggests what Larry Hama may have in mind by foreshadowing the technology that could allow the original Snake Eyes to live again.

The Joes aren't the only ones planning a rescue mission as the the comic peeks in on some familiar faces from the Arashikage who plan on taking the fight to Cobra before they can successfully turn this Snake Eyes into their loyal soldier. I'll admit to being excited to see this group fight together.

Elsewhere we also catch-up with Destro and the Baroness at the mercy of robotic Revanche only to be rescued by an unexpected ally. Zartan's play here isn't immeadiately obvious, although his timely rescue is likely to be part of a larger scheme. While not directly tied to the Snake Eyes plot, I do wonder just what this trio may get up to in the coming issues. Worth a look.
