    While I enjoy the long plotlines of other G.I. Joe books, its sometimes nice to be able to read a comic from start to finish and not feel like youre missing the beginning and the end of a story. Special Missions has had longer stories in the past, but theyve still only been mostly self-contained two issue tales, rather than massive, year-spanning epics. It harks back to the comics of my childhood, and its nice to have a G.I. Joe book that does that. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 6, 2013

    G.I. JOE: Special Missions #9 is an interesting issue because it reminds us that there are many jobs various JOEs are called on to do and not all of them are as heroic as those on the front lines. He may not fit the mold, but Bildocker is a vial member of the team. Although we only get a single issue for his story, I wouldn't mind seeing Bildocker pop-up again sometime down the line. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All in all, there are plenty of people I suspect will like this title. It has its merits… it just doesn't fit in among the rest of Special Missions. Back to the regular plot, please. Read Full Review
