G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #289

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #289 offers us a team-up of Agent Helix and Dawn "Snake Eyes" Moreno (are we still calling her Snake Eyes?). The formidable pair are in Louisiana on the hunt for Dr. Mindbender and Cobra's new the base of Cobra's new B.A.T. program run by Revanche.

I'm not wild about the art from Casey Maloney. Also, the comic is also mostly set-up, including a lame running gag about the two women making a local cop look like a chump, before finally our protagonists pit their skills against the new androids who prove to be more than capable while also be able to hide in plain sight (which Cobra plans to take advantage of by staffing the B.A.T.s throughout its casinos. The action is fine, once the comic finally gets around to it, but I was hoping for more finally seeing these two pair up.

[IDW, $3.99]
