Captured by Transformers! Even with the Autobots on their side, G.I. Joe is in trouble! Starscream doesn't trust anyone, much less armed humans who show up during Cybertron's darkest hour and he'll do anything he can to keep G.I. Joe under control-including let COBRA get even closer to their goal!

    First Strike #4 is a high quality outing that makes full use of these Hasbro properties without feeling forced. It's a real compliment to the creative team that as they, so far, have kept their trajectory focused on the elements it needs to pay attention to. So in other words: this here's a mega-event that's done right! So much so that there's no wonder that the final product easily comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    First Strike so far as ticked all the boxes for a comic book event; it's had big action, big personalities, and big stakes. And now it is has ticked another one with issue four in that it now has a contained, expository issue where nothing much happens, biding time until the plot's second wind kicks in. First Strike #4 didn't do much this month, but at least it did it with heart. Read Full Review

    It's not often that I find myself wishing an event comic had a smaller scope, but that's where we are with First Strike. As fun as it is to see so many Hasbro characters mashed together in one epic team-up, the series is only really making great use of a small handful. Read Full Review
