G.I. JOE #6

G.I. JOE #6Although this one-shot opens the idea of storyline that will no doubt continue to be played out over the next several months (whether or not Duke may be the traitor with the JOE ranks), the main focus of the latest issue is to offer readers a primer on a single member of the team: Cover Girl.

Told mostly through a prolonged flashback, G.I. JOE #6 humorously examines the career of a somewhat lost Courtney Krieger who found herself on an extreme reality-TV survivor show and how the events on a small tropical island let the Krieger to discovering an entirely new skill set and being recruited by G.I. JOE.

Other than Cover Girl’s suspicions about her boyfriend and her discovery of the wife he neglected to tell anyone about (including Cover Girl), the issue is mostly a self-contained story to help new readers get a better feel for another member of the team and explain how a supermodel became a member of G.I. JOE. It works really well, and I hope we see more of both Cover Girl in the months to come as well as similar issues featuring other JOEs. Worth a look.
