    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Feb 4, 2010

    When I first read the solicitation for this comic, I expected something edgier and blunter in its explorations of the origin of the Baroness. While the end result is absolutely nothing like what I had expected, I can honestly say that I would never want it any other way. This is a subtle and vulnerable exploration of one of the franchise's darkest and most impenetrable characters, which makes it all the more fascinating. Everything about this issue works almost perfectly as Andreyko and Templesmith turn the readers' expectations upside down while still staying true to the core of the character. This is a brilliant comic and should not be missed. Read Full Review

    Art isn't normally the strong suit of the G.I. Joe books, but Origins #12 is one notable exception. Fans of Templesmith's work may get a kick out of the issue, but even Baroness lovers will be hard-pressed to find much enjoyment in the script. Read Full Review
