G.I. Joe: Cobra Volume 4

Title: G.I. Joe: Cobra Volume 4

ISBN: 9781600109881

Price: $17.99

Publisher/Year: IDW, 2011

Artist: Antonio Fuso, SL Gallant, Chee

Writer: Mike Costa, Christos N. Gage

Collects: G.I. Joe: Cobra #10-13

Rating: 3/5

One event precipitated the Cobra civil war, and that is the death of Cobra Commander. This trade follows the events leading up to his untimely demise and the civil war. If you haven’t read the single issue of the G.I. Joe: Cobra title, you’re sure to be surprised with what happens.

This title has always revolved around a single Joe; Chuckles. He’s a Cobra prisoner, but soon becomes so much more. You also have a fine cast of Cobra characters to fill the empty spaces in this story: Tomax and Xamot, the Baroness, Big Boa and, of course, Cobra Commander himself. I enjoy the commander’s reasoning behind what he does. This differs greatly from what Larry Hama originally wrote during his days with Marvel, but it works very well.

The art sometimes leaves a lot to be desired, but it is fairly consistent with all 3 of the artists. The art is not entirely great but not the worst I’ve ever seen. The whole trade is well worth the price and I suggest adding this to the collection of any G.I. Joe fan.
