Cover/Solicit - 3/5

Verdict - 3.3

- After all the buildup we are finally at the conclusion of the Target Snake Eyes arc. The first thing that annoys me with the issue is the cover. Every time I see it something bothers me. We have Scarlett whose proportions are completely wrong, she not only looks squat but a little to voluptuous. The next is the let down of the issue itself. We have been building to this great confrontation between Storm Shadow, COBRA, Soft Master, and G.I. Joe but what we get is a couple of COBRA Vipers getting themselves killed, a kid taking out Soft Master, Storm Shadow defending Snake-Eyes, and G.I. Joe forgetting is indiscretions. While not a horrible story I was really expecting more of a battle. This is probably best read in the TPB so you get the whole story at once.
