    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 24, 2014

    The problem with writing a G.I. Joe comic book comes in the difference between superhero and solider, something that plagues IDW's G.I. Joe monthly on occasion, but that Hama overcomes with authentic jargon, appropriate chain of command and authentic tactical decisions by the Joes, with characters getting injured or taken out of action in ways that superhero books could not get away with. With so many characters, this issue could have been a mess, but Larry Hama expertly puts it all together into a story that even overcame the problems I might have had in missing a few issues before jumping back in. G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #199 sticks the landing, giving us old favorites with a new twist, and looks as good as any modern book while staying delightfully old-school, earning a solid 4 out of 5 stars overall. I'll be back for at least next issue's anniversary, and hopefully even further. Yo Joe! Read Full Review

    In short, this is far from a bad issue. It reads well and looks as good as A Real American Hero tends to do. Whether or not it leads into anything worthwhile will depend on next month's G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #200. Read Full Review
