G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #286

G.I. JOE turns the spotlight on the most famous Arashikage ninja in G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #286 as Stalker narrates a flashback tale back in Vietnam and the first time Snake Eyes laid eyes on Storm Shadow (which, of course is one-hundred times better than anything we got from the Snake Eyes film.

While the issue doesn't offer the chance to see either character in classic costume, issue #286 does give us an interesting look back at the early relationship between the quiet Snake Eyes and the only friend who ever got him talking (and became the major source of what the other soldiers learned of Snake Eyes' past). Plus there's plenty of fun moments for fans of G.I. JOE such as discussion about Tommy's tattoo and unwillingness to talk about his family business.
