Everyone on the COBRA FILES team is reeling from the previous mission. Everyone but CLOCKSPRING. He's got other things on his mind. Dejected and bitter over FLINT and CHAMELEON's recent tryst, he's starting to listen to TOMAX's sinister advice... and thinking of taking matters into his own hands.

    Its time to start a new arc called The Boy most likely to! This is where we learn about Clocksprings origin and how he became the tech guys for the black ops team. We see further into his love for tortured women and his resent for meatheads. We get a new artist on this issue keeping up with the gritty style of the series and a Florean team up on the colors. There wasnt any action this month but a solid story kept the train rolling on this awesome title. Mike Costa has again knocked it out of the park with a great start to a new story. As I have said before, this book gives us a brand new look at GI Joe and its operations. If you thirst for an incredible spy book look no further than GI Joe: Cobra Files! Read Full Review

    This is easily the best of the GI Joe titles and this issue is an example of why. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Aug 16, 2013

    The contrast of this book makes it an interesting read. When you think G.I. Joe you think of explosions, over the top action and heroics. This Cobra file story has none of that. It lets you know that the G.I. Joe HQ is not always buzzing with vibrant people as you are made to believe. Instead, it is out of this HQ that a threat could be born. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Aug 6, 2013

    In short, I'm highly impressed with this issue. It's not foreshadowing for the sake of foreshadowing; it's personal conflict, dilemma and character development told well. Of course, it's the potential consequences that will likely get most G.I Joe fans. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 14, 2013

    There are some nice touches here by new artist Werther Dell'Edera who uses various pastels to color Clockspring's flashbacks but consistently paints the current version character in shadows to further drive home the man's questionable state of mind and dangerous nature. Worth a look. Read Full Review
