A Review: G.I. JOE #12

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of G.I. JOE #12 from IDW Publishing. The story is by Paul Allor, with art by Alex Cal, SL Gallant and Mark Deering, Atilio Rojo, and Nicole Virella. The coloring is by David Garcia Cruz and John-Paul Bove and the lettering is by Shawn Lee.

New officer code-named Siren has made a deal with Cobra Commander; spread the vast history of COBRA to the world and help them take down a human-trafficking ring. In exchange COBRA will rescue her son that was abducted by said salve ring. With the Baroness as her escort, Siren wonders what she got herself into.

This issue really opened my eyes as it shows that COBRA (in one form or another) has been around for centuries. Writer Paul Allor has jumped on the title and shows he is up to the task. Cobra Commander is making an interesting move here; informing the criminal element what has happened to those who have interfered with their plans as a lesson. My curiosity is piqued and I would like to see where things go from here.

G.I. JOE #12 is in stores now, or available to order at www.IDWPublishing.com.
