JOE is in trouble: CLUTCH and ROCK N' ROLL are trapped in COBRA's new HQ and a new mission in Benzheen takes a turn for the worse! The villains reign supreme in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #185!

Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 4/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 4/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 2/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 3/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?




Verdict - 3.1

- Continuing the theme from the last couple covers we don't get anything special just Zartan and the Dreadnoks, also I hope the alternate cover is just somebody's Comic-Con artist drawing and not an actual printing. We find ourselves bouncing around between the Joe's at Cobra Acres, The Pit, Benzheen, and the Dreadnoks. The story bounces back and forth between them, and at times I was confused where everyone was. The story is pretty bland as well, not even close to IDW's 3 reboot series. If your a Joe fan I would say pick this up, otherwise skip it for one of IDW's other books.
