WOW! Cobra #7 is really gonna put you on the edge of your seat! While we don’t find out who the new Cobra Commander is — that happens next month in G.I. Joe #8 — we do get some big time payoff. It’s getting down to the wire and business is picking up!
Mike Costa does a great job writing what basically ends up being Die Hard in the G.I. Joe headquarters. Secrets are revealed, the body count rises, and the person that I thought was gonna be Cobra Commander is….well, let’s just say it’s not going to be who I thought it was. Just an all around great issue for the penultimate chapter of this year-long storyline. After this issue, the dynamic of this whole book is going to change a full 180 degrees. I can’t wait to see where it goes next.
Antonio Fuso is a great artist and this is a great story that needs him on his A game, which he totally is. This has to be the bloodiest G.I. Joe comic that IDW has put out so far, and he completely pulls it off by making you both feel concerned for the characters and not going over the top into gross-out gore territory.
AN all around fantastic issue. It will have you on the edge of your seat and folks, I don’t know how I’m gonna sit still until G.I. Joe #8 comes out.
