The hunt is on for Snake Eyes in this epic tale that will feature every living JOE!

When the original Snake Eyes lost his life battling the forces of evil, Sean Collins (aka Throwdown) took up the mysterious mantle to deny Cobra a moral victory in their long-running war against G.I. JOE. But Cobra Commander-not realizing the original Snake Eyes’ memories and skills are now implanted in the mind and body of Dawn Moreno-has never given up his desire to remove the legendary ninja from his enemies, and will do whatever it takes to make it happen, including kidnapping and brainwashing Sean Collins and making him part of Cobra!

“Snake Hunt” is a star-studded 10-part event that will feature EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF G.I. JOE! Collects issues #266-275.

Review: G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1

As a child of the 1980s, Saturday morning cartoons were always my jam. My cousins and I used to sit in front of the television half asleep watching hours of our favorite cartoons. There were some forgettable ones, like the Kid N Play cartoon and the Teen Wolf cartoon. Then there are the ones who used to confuse us, like the competing Ghostbusters cartoons, one with the movie characters and the other one with a gorilla in a fedora.

Then there are the all-time classics no matter what age, the ones that even your parents played with. One such franchise was G.I. Joe as it captured the imagination of my generation. It gave us a tease and had us imagine what we believed the military to be. In the comic book series of the same name, Larry Hama gives fans an excellent story in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1, one in which we see our heroes at their best.

We are taken to a train somewhere between New York City and Washington DC, where a special envoy is protecting a VIP, Dr. Adele Burkhart, who is in charge of a weapons system designed to annihilate all life on Earth. Of course, this trip gets interrupted, as COBRA boards the train and kidnaps the doctor. This leads to G.I. Joe going on a daring mission to rescue Dr. Burkhart from COBRA’s secret island lair. As they land on the island, a battle breaks out between GI Joe’s forces and COBRA, causing COBRA Commander, to unleash a weapon that Dr.Burkhart developed. By the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1‘s end, G.I. Joe thwarts COBRA’s attack.

Overall, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1 is a throwback issue which harkens back to the comics of yesteryear. The story by Hama is fun. The art by the creative team serves its purpose. Altogether, an exciting story that feels dated but remembers to entertain.
