G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #278

"Untold Tales" continues to focus on never-before-seen adventures from writer Larry Hama and a rotating stable of JOE artists. G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #278 taps artist Dan Schoening for an icy tale featuring Snow Job, Blizzard, Iceberg, Frostbite, and more.

The issue opens after Cover Girl, Low-Light, and the arctic Joes have successfully hit a Cobra base in Frusenland and made off with a kidnapped scientist. With one of their vehicles damaged and Cobra reinforcements on their tail, the Joes have no choice but to fight in the middle of the blizzard.

The issue highlights how the Joes are able to handle the situation with far more grace than Cobra, whose haste proves to be their downfall. G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #278 offers another fun single issue adventure with the arctic setting allowing for Hama and Schoening to tap an unique subset of the Joe roster. The inclusion of Low-Light proves to be quite important, as he's able to stop the last of the Cobra pursuit.
