Comics: G.I. Joe Vol. 2 #2

June 2, 2011

It's only two issues in, but G.I. Joe keeps getting better with each issue! This one is a straight-out, hit the ground running action-mystery that delivers. We've got the Joes under siege in the PITT looking for...we're not exactly sure; we've got Gen. Hawk and Dial Tone on the run in Washington D.C. and there's Storm Shadow waiting to assault the G.I. Joe team. Author Chuck Dixon must have read our review of G.I. Joe #1 because there are more G.I. Joe team members in this issue. Dixon's portrayal of Cobra soldiers as modern day terrorists--not the rank and file troops in standard military garb we're accustomed to--also had us concerned, but it's really working with this story. There isn't much in this issue that moves the Cobra Civil War storyline forward, but that's OK, the Cobra book should cover that.

Verdict: Even better than the previous issue! Buy it!
