Saturday Morning Adventures

This month on G.I. Joe: Saturday Morning Adventures Cobra strikes! Paris, Tokyo, and Washington, D.C. are attacked by MegaB.A.T.s, and G.I. Joe is there to fight them! But will the Joe team be enough to stop the extra-large androids from wreaking havoc in these three capital cities? And is there more to the fiendish Cobra Commander’s plans than simple destruction? Find out in “Three Heads of the Serpent”, the second chapter in this extension of the classic animated adventures of G.I. Joe!

 

The Story

Having gotten hold of Alladins Lamp in the last issue. Cobra Commander has made use of the Genie to help with his plans for world domination. To that end, her has dispatched his MegaB.A.T.s to three major cities, and the G.I. Joe’s struggle to find a weakness in the B.A.T.s. But Cobra Commander finds that his wishes are going a little wrong as the Genie’s interpretation of Cobra Commanders’ orders gets somewhat twisted.

Meanwhile in Washington. Duke gets captured by one of Cobra’s B.A.T.s and the Cobra Commander orders his troops to retreat…

 

The Artwork

Dan Schoening continues to do a brilliant job with the artwork, which is a loving recreation of the classic eighties cartoon series. I loved the various battles that played out across all three locations. But my favorite moments involved Cobra Commander and the Genie. That Purple haze surrounding the Genie looks very glittery and feels very 1980s.

 

Overall

Erik Burnham continues to capture the spirit of G.I. Joe’s Saturday Morning Adventures brilliantly. He does a great job with the character dialogue. Especially when it comes to Cobra Commander who I can hear speaking in my head when I read this book. I also loved the bits where Baroness and Destro are commenting on their commander’s mistakes. This was particularly funny when the Genie deliberately misinterprets his orders.

I look forward to the next issue.
