    This series is generally a decent read. Issues like this veer more towards "good". The visual quality of G.I. Joe is certainly on the way up now that Robert Atkins' clean, slick pencils have returned. But the book needs minor adjustments to become great. The franchise as a whole is in much better shape than it was two years ago before coming to IDW. I just continue to hope that all of IDW's books can display the same storytelling brilliance as G.I. Joe Cobra. Read Full Review

    In short, this is a reasonable issue. G.I Joe #16 wraps up an excellent arc, and suggests a more interesting future for the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess Aug 19, 2012

    For my money, Chuck Dixon's "G.I. Joe" is simply one of the best books available right now, so the lull of this issue shouldn't be seen as something inherent to the title. This book has done a lot to shake up the G.I. Joe mythos and give it a lot of verisimilitude, so, consequently, it can feel like a letdown when an issue is just "great" and not "tremendously fantastic." I've not doubted this book since it re-launched and I'm not letting one mediocre experience sour the title""it's worth reading even if it's not the shiniest gem in the chest. Pick it up if you're a Joe fan, but you can easily wait until the next issue to start a new arc. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Mar 25, 2010

    This is a fun issue that features some cool characterization, but the poor pacing and the very uneven art really hold it back. While this issue does feature some of the coolest scenes and concepts we've seen so far, it feels so haphazardly put together that I can't justify giving it a stronger verdict, even if I did still enjoy it as a whole.
