Self contained without ignoring the large universe it exists in.

Yeah, I rave about GI joe Titles by IDW....... This is getting redundant at this point.

I really want to get all of these stories in order (I read them all out of order, because I get whatever is available from the library).

I know that Flint has his team that was in Cobra Files

Scarlet has her team that was in Special Missions

and then Duke has his team in this book. There is a lot more than that going on, in each of these books, but just like they split the Transformers into different groups for t

From the inside cover: Originally published as G.I. JOE Volume 3 Issues #6-11.

Continuation and conclusion? of the story started in the first volume as well as a sort origin story for Roadblock and his cousin Heavy Duty. Sill, enjoying this title. More Cobra agents showing up in this one we had Zandar, Zarana, Baroness, Destro, Mad Monk, and Cobra Commander. Scarlett and her team make a few cameo appearances. I also really like the shorts with Marcy Malone, intern of Cobra, they made me laugh.

I like the story enough to put it at three stars, but it's tempting to put it at two for how much the art bugs the hell out of me. If I see one more female character posed like her spine is snapping, it'll be too soon. I really want to keep going on this book because Van Lente is putting together something interesting and fun, but it looks like the same artist is carrying along with him, and I've looked at enough blank-eyed women standing tits-front at the reader for no reason to last me awhile.

I finished this a couple of weeks ago and when I sat down today to update my goodreads, I couldn't remember anything at all about the story until I read the blurb. I think that probably is all I need to say about it at this point.

Duke hides the secret from his past -- which we know from volume 1 -- while the new leader of the Manhattan Cobra cell launches an attack against the Joes -- and everyone else.

One thing I may not have mentioned in my review of the first collection is that Fred Van Lente is very good at pacing and control. Here we have a typical Joe story: they have to stop a bunch of potential dangers. It's, honestly, a story I feel like I've seen in the cartoon show. But Van Lente really nicely moves each threa
