G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #273

After several issues of lead-up, the rescue of Throwdown (who Cobra still mistakenly believe is the original Snake Eyes) begins with the first of many forces sneaking into the Cobra underground laboratory as others including the Arashikage and teams led by Zartan and Destro arrive in Springfield as well.

Inside the bunker, Throwdown has already started his escape and has taken both Cobra Commander and Dr. Mindbender hostage, keeping all the Cobra eyes turned inward and unaware of what is about to rain down on them.

We get some Joes taking out Cobra sentries, and panels of several other of the various groups making their way closer to the compound, but most of the action takes place in the bunker where Throwdown fights off the various Cobra forces (and even kneecaps poor Cobra Commander and Dr. Mindbender after using them as hostages proves ineffective). Will there be anyone left for the Joes?
