Cobra World Order part one kicks off with this issue and starts to piece the puzzle together for what’s actually going on with Cobra. Several high-level Cobra agents jocky for position, while G.I. Joe try’s to put the bigger picture together for what they are up against.
G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #219
“As suspicious Cobra activity flares up around the globe, Hawk leads a strike team to try and get to the bottom of the sinister organization’s latest plot. But the deeper G.I. Joe digs, the more chilling Cobra’s master plan becomes?”
If you decide to read on this review will contain Major Spoilers.
Cobra World Order part one has kicked off! In typical fashion Cobra Commander has put his plan in motion (one that nobody has any details on) and has set the rest of Cobra and it’s various agents into the usual power struggle, mostly to find out why they are being kept in the dark, and everybody wanting their share of the action.
The CWO story has a good pace in this issue with decent action. But…. the IDW team continues to focus on the Death of Snake Eyes story line that just manages to take up valuable story space (four-pages worth) that could have been used to push the Cobra World Order story line further along. I will NEVER be good with how the new Fake Eyes story has gone down, and to continue that sub-story inside a huge event like Cobra World Order is a massive distraction that takes away from the focus of the book.
Some of the cool references inside G.I. Joe ARAH #219 is the new Dreadnok base located in the New Jersey Pine Barrens (that has shown up now in a few issues) and Cobra Commanders Hooded Rubber Ducky. Also I feel the need to point out Destro the Electrician! He never really says he personally installed those devices but I’m just going to go there and think he wanted to make sure the job was done right personally. #CobraToast
