The end of the Golden Age of the GIJoe comic. The crazier elements begin to creep in here, but Larry Hama keeps them grounded. That won't always be the case.
So handy having these things compiled into book form like this, and then discovering that my local library system carries the series! I screen these before letting my sons read them, but I enjoyed G.I. Joe toys and cartoons back when I was a kid, so it's fun for me, too, to read these stories (which I didn't do as a kid).
Overall it's pretty good... if you can overlook the poor art and editing. Dr. Mindbender was called Dr. Brainwave multiple times in the beginning and then at the very end again! Stalker was colored as a white guy in a panel and Gung Ho was drawn in two separate transport planes at the same time!
More awesome. The story where Rip-Cord and Zartan get switched is awesome, and the assault on Springfield/rise of Serpentor is FANTASTIC. I freaking love this comic.
