CRUSH DEPTH continues! Scarlett and her Special Missions team rush to the heart of a perfect storm to retrieve a prize of forty billion (with a B!) of COBRA funds lying in the ocean deep. The only trouble is that the Baroness is already on the scene with a cutthroat crew of her own to reclaim the booty for COBRA!

    All in all, this is an impressive and worth-while follow up to the opening issue. Whilst its pacing is slow, this seems to be in Special Missions favor so far. Read Full Review

    All in all, Special Missions #2 was a solid story that ultimately left me wanting more of what I got from the initial launch issue. But I still expect great things from these Joes in their quest to rid the world of the forces of Cobra. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 10, 2013

    Although there aren't any big moments here, issue #2 moves the story forward by laying the foundation of trouble for our heroes, and villains, in the form of mutiny, sharks, and Scarlett's own nightmares being so close to her final encounter withSnake Eyes. That said, there's certainly enough here for me to keep reading to see how the storyline plays out (and keep hoping that sooner or later Snake Eyes will make an appearance outside of Scarlett's dreams). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I would say you can probably skip this issue and pick up the next and wouldn’t be lost. The only thing that makes it worth picking up is the retailer incentive cover. Read Full Review

    This series is a slow burn, but a great and wonderful read. Plots are slow-moving, but having just read the entire 3 issues of the series so far in one go, I can tell that there are big plans ahead for the Joes. Not to mention, Paul Gulacy's art is fantastic.
