G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #294

"High Stakes" continues at the not-so-undercover Joes struggle to stay alive on Cobra Island. More than half the issue is set aside for Helix and Dawn's fights against the evil Revanche B.A.T.S. disguised as waitresses before doing a bit of snooping underneath the casino and finding many, many more.

Elsewhere, Jinx hides out in Dr. Mindbender's lab where the scientist conveniently lays out all his plans to our heroic eavesdropper. Eventually the extraction team gets called in to help deal with all the B.A.T.S. There's plenty of action here, but in terms of story development G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #294 feels very much like the previous issue - a middling issue of a series dragging its feet to the comic's 300th issue.
