Comics: Cobra Civil War #0

"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."
- Bertrand Russell

Cobra Civil War #0 is basically three original previews of IDW’s upcoming G.I. Joe lineup, which includes; G.I. Joe, Cobra and the new, on-going Snake Eyes series. And it’s awesome!

First, we get the G.I. Joe preview featuring a team of Joe's investigating the abandoned town of Springfield. No spoilers, but it's explosive and introduces a new villain into the G.I. Joe universe and we can't wait to get the action figure!

Next up, we head over to see what the nasty folks at Cobra are up to. This story is probably the most interesting. For those not following along, Chuckles killed Cobra Commander. Yes, you read that right. Chuckles killed Cobra Commander! Now the masterminds behind Cobra have decided to hold a contest, of sorts, to find a replacement. The contestant who deals the biggest blow to G.I. Joe will become the new Cobra Commander. The story sets up the characters in contention and hints at their plans for attacking the Joe team.

Finally, we have the Snake Eyes story. We’re going to say it's the weakest of the three stories, simply because we don’t get enough Snake Eyes. It does, however, compliment the on-going Snake Eyes book--illustrated by Robert Atkins--nicely.

VERDICT: Buy it…now! Seriously, it's a great read with nice art and even though IDW has combined three different stories, they all flow seamlessly one into the next.
