G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #272

Throwdown (who Cobra still mistakenly believe is the original Snake Eyes) makes his escape attempt as the Joes continue to mobilize by air, land, and space. Putting pieces in place for the final three issues of the "Snake Hunt" arc, G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #272 features Joes in buses, planes, and deploying a satellite in space. Zartan and Destro's teams also rendezvous with the the Joe caravan and the Arashikage arrive in Springfield as well.

The only real action from G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #272 comes from our hero's attempt to escape the Cobra bunker before Cobra Commander and Dr. Mindbender can turn him into a puppet for Cobra. Throwdown does fairly well against such odds, but with so much of the story left to tell, I'll guess he's not making it out on his own just yet.

Longtime fans of G.I. JOE will enjoy the group shots which artist Robert Atkins uses to fit as many Joes as possible in this issue. How many can you name?
