With no weapons, the Joes are forced to improvise. Clutch stops by a bathroom and dumps several bottles of PX aftershave in a bucket.



At Cobra HQ, Cobra Commander explains that their robot is programmed to fight its way out of the Joes' radio-shielded HQ, then transmit its position which will be triangulated by Cobra's helicopter-borne directional scanners.

Got a repeated image here.

And this didn't seem so bad, if this is a sub-par issue the rest must be pretty rad.

Snake Eyes can be pretty sassy when he wants to be can't he?

Right around then, Hasbro launched their second wave of G.I. Joe figures and vehicles, so we'll also meet some new faces.

The need to sell merch is the driving force behind the conflict between the Cobras and the Joes.

I'm still subscribed to the Virtue's Last Reward Let's Play, a thread that has had several month long gaps between updates and been running so long that the game's sequel was announced and came out in the time since it first began.

I can be patient.

Oh man, can the Americans and Russians put aside their differences and realize they're not so different after all? Tune in next time!

That said, I'm legit curious as to what's going on with Hawk here. I somehow doubt they'd go straight "He was a double agent all along!" unless they were going to kill him off to make room for another character, but it seems too early for that. So... impostor? Is Hawk impersonating the real Songbird so he can... do something?

Even after I finished reading that I was still confused about the whole Operation Doppelganger thing. I thought for sure that he was going to have Cobra troops disguised as the Joes and the Guard attack the others to try and break the alliance and was kinda baffled when it didn't happen.

I actually had to read the whole thing twice to figure out that it referred to the Cobra Commander body double

So I'm guessing the MOBAT was destroyed so they could make room for new toys hardware?

"So word just came down, we're gonna need to use the scuba guy in the next issue."

"How the gently caress are we gonna work scuba guy into a battle at the treasury?"

I never realized how much I need a Kwinn and Snake-Eyes on the Road series of comics.

Proteus, do you have any idea how brilliant an idea that is?

Small point of confusion, how in on this plan is Scarface? He knows that COBRA is sacrificing him to get at the Joes, and kinda goes along with it after spending so much effort to avoid them and go into hiding?
