This issue would have been good if we hadn’t already just seen it in the previous issues. It’s the same basic formula that happened with the Coil and Leonard Micheals. Except this time it’s Chuckles and Cobra Commander.

Cobra Commander, like Serpentor did with Leonard Micheals, shows Chuckles that there is no where for him to go but Cobra. Where Serpentor showed that the Coil was the only ones that cared about Micheals, Cobra Commander shows Chuckles that Cobra is the only group where Chuckles can be useful. He also offers Tomax and Xamot for Chuckles to have revenge on.

The basic formula is the same, but there are some bits and pieces here that make this story different from the previous. It’s interesting how Cobra Commander compares Cobra and G.I. Joe as the same, and it’s possible to see where he’s right.

It’s too bad that the main meat of the story is so similar to the previous issues. It’s a shame because Cobra has been such a strong book. This isn’t a bad read, but it’s too similar. Except this one I can see where Chuckles could be pulling a fast one on the Commander.

The art is interesting as Gallant does the beginning of the book and Fuso returns to finish it off. Gallant’s art looks different then it has before, it looks like the addition of Erskine on inks gives Gallants work a feel similar to Fusos.

It’s good to have Fuso back, but his work isn’t as strong as it’s been in the past.

3 out of 5

Usually a very good book, this issue suffers from being to similar to what has come before.
