- Writer: Chuck Dixon
- Artist: Robert Atkins
Cobra and the Arashikage Clan have declared war on each other and now the new Cobra Commander has loosed Serpentor and his private army known as the Coil to strike in the name of Cobra and eradicate the ninja.
The Coil successful capture the Soft Master (although the comic suggests they may have bitten off more than they can chew with the devious and deadly old man), but Snake Eyes and a group of Arashikage ninja are able to prevent the same fate from befalling the Hard Master and his latest student, even if it means letting the ninja know the old man still lives.
With the war between Cobra and the Arashikage heating up, the choices Snake Eyes makes further blur the lines between right and wrong. Next month turns up the flames as Snake Eyes’ old G.I. JOE teammates, realizing their pal is alive and has gone back to the ninja who trained him, get into the action as well as the crossover “Target: Snake Eyes” begins. Worth a look.
