“Target: Snake Eyes” continues as the Arashikage attack Cobra‘s cargo ship full of the hard currency they are using to buy their own country. And waiting for Snake Eyes and the ninja to show up are Scarlett and her team of JOEs ready to take down every target on the ship, including their friend.
G.I. JOE #19 reaches its climax when, amidst all the chaos on-board the ship, Scarlett comes face-to-face with Snake Eyes. Although she’s unable to either kill him or bring him in, she gets her answer on whose side the JOE is really on when he kills one of the ninja to save her life. Unfortunately for Snake Eyes, Scarlett isn’t the only one who witnessed what went down. When events are reported back to Storm Shadow that Snake Eyes is truly working against, not for, the good of the clan he’s less than pleased.
Writer Chuck Dixon delivers another strong issue full of action (and tons of dead ninja and Cobra soldiers) as the the crossover reaches its tipping point now that Storm Shadow finally knows the truth about Snake Eyes’ agenda. Worth a look.
