Comic Review-GI Joe: A Real American Hero #170

WOW! LOTS going on this issue. But then, you have to remember your're reading a comic with almost 30 years of continuity and a limitless cast of characters and villains. The thing I love about this book is that Larry Hama can still pull GI Joe mythology outta thin air. And, I guess, if anyone is allowed to, he is. But, the best thing about this title is that it's the Joes as we know and love them. In all these years, their personalities haven't changed, and neither have Cobras. There's actually a couple of laugh out loud moments from Cobra Commander here that are pretty great. I guess if I had one problem with this comic, it's that we only get about two pages at a time with each character or team and when you're dealing with this many people, it's not nearly enough. But, at least you get to see everyone you want to at least for a little bit.
-Artist S L Gallant does a great job. I don't know if it's him on his own, or from Larry Hama's scripts, but there's some great sight gags in this issue like back in the original series. Another home run issue for this book!
