Larry Hama's latest arc in G.I. Joe Origins concludes here! The Joes surround the embassy that the Borovian terrorists have taken over. With the terrorists trapped inside with hostages, it's an infiltration mission for the G.I. Joe team! Yet this mission requires a lack of lethal firearms, and a quick clean up! Tensions are high, Hawk's partner in this covert op isn't who he says he is, and the Joes must complete the mission under less than ideal circumstances! Action! Intensity! Suspense! How doe this latest issue play out?
This is the most action packed issue in the 3 issue arc that started with the 8th issue. This issue kept me on my toes for the entire duration. It isn't predictable at all, as the Joes must operate in conditions that they are not used to. The mission they take on is unlike anything they've encountered before. This issue shows how they react under the pressure and the uncertainty of their situation.
Trying to rescue hostages without the use of lethal firearms is a difficult feat. So of course, the silent weapons expert, Snake Eyes, comes to mind! Snake Eyes does make a worthwhile appearance in this issue. Fans have been waiting for Snake Eyes to spring into action more, and in this issue, he does not disappoint! If anything, we see that even he is eager to spring into action.
An important aspect of this issue is General Hawk. Even in the regular Joe books, you can sense the tension between he and the other Joes. With G.I. Joe Cobra, the tension was higher as Chuckles began to trust him less and less. With this issue, we can see that in the end, Hawk really does care about his team.
This is the best issue of Hama's latest arc in Origins. We learned more about Hawk, which is good because we haven't scratched the surface on him yet. It was entertaining to see the Joes resort to outdated weaponry to get the job done. This has a fitting conclusion, and is definitely worth picking up!

I just finished reading it and it was enjoyable. I got lucky because the store I go to only had 1 copy left. What a pain in the ass to be driving around today though.

i'll miss hama on the origins title. this was a good isssue. but i am ready to see some terrorists from the toyline. iron klaw or iron stormtroopers or baf's red shadows. ryall mentioned at one time, the red shadows would be showing up. it would be a way to lead us into cobra as they could be splinter cells or cooperating terrorist groups that cobra is utilizing.
thanks for the review and merry christmas,
IDW's continuation of Marvel and Hama's classic continuity continues AND is utilizing more modern toys. It outsells Transformers but needs more readers and letter hacks. email@example.com re:postbox:the pit. this canon is more than a fad, let's proove it.
