- Writer: Chuck Dixon

After Zartan survived the first attempt on his life, Storm Shadow sends Snake Eyes and Rika out to finish the job. That’s only half of Zartan’s problems, however, as his insolence has perturbed the new Cobra Commander enough to allow Savane to make a name for herself in Cobra by killing him as well.
With both the Arashikage Clan and Cobra out to kill him you wouldn’t expect Zartan’s life expectancy to be very long. However, for another issue the master of disguise manages to stay one step ahead of his persuers, although his getaway plane does have a bomb onboard.
We get another glimpse at Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow’s lives as young pupils of Arashikage as well Snake Eyes knocking out Rika and sending a coded message to Helix about Zartan. We’ll have to see how long the mute ninja can keep playing both sides before someone figures out what’s really going on. Worth a look.
