Realizing they aren’t the only ones looking for Cobra’s sunken treasure Scarlett and Mainframe are forced to hide from other divers sent from the Baroness‘ ship who are, at least so far, clueless to the JOEs presence.
However, the Baroness is about to have problems of her own as Serpentor approaches the owner of the vessel the Baroness is using under threat of harm to the man’s grandchildren and offers his services to retrieve the children in exchange for the magnate to have his sailors turn on the Baroness and her team.
Although there aren’t any big moments here, issue #2 moves the story forward by laying the foundation of trouble for our heroes, and villains, in the form of mutiny, sharks, and Scarlett’s own nightmares being so close to her final encounter with Snake Eyes. That said, there’s certainly enough here for me to keep reading to see how the storyline plays out (and keep hoping that sooner or later Snake Eyes will make an appearance outside of Scarlett’s dreams). Worth a look.
