    This is a prime example of how a backup can hijack a great comic. The lead comic in this issue is easily Must Read material and could be a contender for Book of the Week on its own. Unfortunately, the longwinded prose story takes up the majority of this issue, bumping up the page count and adding to the price. At $2.99 for just the main story, this comic could take home the top spot on this week's rankings (granted, IDW's standard price point for GI Joe books is $3.99, but I think we'd probably get more story pages at full price, so I won't complain). Unfortunately, I feel like I've paid a few extra bucks for something that has very little to do with the lead and, ultimately, drags the book down. Read Full Review

    Whatever slightly underwhelming qualities this issue might have, it still very much represents a return to form for the series. G.I. Joe: Cobra Special #2 reminds readers why this books has been so creatively successful in the first place, and it certainly builds anticipation for the return of Chuckles and the rest of the gang.
