    A really great issue that does what it promises-shines the spotlights on the new recruits. It's been some time since we've had some new characters in ARAH and these seem like very interesting characters that will last. Add to that the awesome writing and solid, entertaining art and you've got a book that you're gonna want to grab right away! Read Full Review

    Hama's still got it, and new artist Billy Penn brings his A game to match the man who's been writing G.I. Joe since 1982. Add in a few new Joes to spice things up and you've got yourself a really good heist "movie." Read Full Review

    As it stands, this is good, but it won't exactly stand alongside the series' most iconic moments. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 16, 2021

    The first part of a multi-issue story, the issue is perfunctory without any real highlights. The Joes face a small bit of resistance here and there, and get to dress up as Cobra soldiers at one point, but the mission is carried off without a hitch. However, neither the truth of what Mindbender is after on the island nor value of the data Black Hat was able to download is revealed here. That, plus the absence of any big-name characters, leaves the reader with a somewhat incomplete experience. Read Full Review
