After the last couple of issues which haven’t been very good, this one steps up a bit. It’s still not as good as issue #156 was, but it’s definately better then the last two.

The cheesy dialogue is still there, with Cobra Commander and Mindbender being full of horrible lines. Some of even groan worthy. The rest of the cast’s script is good. Hawk has the best moments of this issue.

It moves along at a good pace, not as fast as the previous issues, but still a fairly quick read. There’s a bit too much time spent on a couple of the scenes. It’s as if Hama took the comments that bits of the previous issues were missing, making them hard to follow, and made an effort to make sure that didn’t happen with this issue. That doesn’t make it bad, but it does have some extra bits that could be taken away. The whole brainwashing Snake-Eyes scene could have been shorter for example.

Padilla’s art is better as well. It doesn’t look as rushed as previous issues. There are some proportion and perspective issues though. It seems like he forgot how to draw weapons right between issues. The end scene with Snake-Eyes gives proof that he should do a good job with the upcoming Snake-Eyes ongoing series. I’m looking forward to seeing what Gallant will do on this title.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #160 receives
3 out of 5

Considering the grades the previous issues received, this is a big improvement.
