    All in all, this is a good issue for the series – it has plenty to read into and has enough character development and significant plot elements that it's something long time readers will want to pay attention to. That said, for a 200th issue, it could've been a bit more special. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Mar 25, 2014

    The Joes that we know and love are Hamas. As far as Im concerned, he has artistic ownership over them and can decide to do with them what he will. The cliffhanger at the end of this issue shows that there is plenty in store for the Joes and that the future of this comic is still a fair way away. I hope that I can review #300 someday with a Hama credit still on the cover. Read Full Review

    Hama, Gallant and company manage to walk the fine line between over-the-top action and adventure free of tragedy and ridiculous pretense. Hama keeps the Joes energetic, the Cobra crew brow-beaten and Cobra Commander more dramatic than a diva. The story moves quickly from cover to finale and the issue packs in some behind-the-scenes extras for readers to indulge in after consuming a very satisfying G.I. Joe battle in "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" #200. My biggest gripe with this comic is that, towards the conclusion of the story, Scarlett professes that "knowing is a burden" -- I thought it was half the battle. Whichever the case, it's clear that Hama's good intentions when it comes to the Joes shines through in the final product. Read Full Review

    Overall, this comic is basically like any other in the previous forty-five. There's some cool action in it, some cool artwork and no plot gets completely resolved, it just follows right into the next. To take advantage of the anniversary issue IDW would have been better served putting together something truly special and different. It's an enjoyable read. It's simply not a special one.
