This issue was a very well done issue. G.I. Joe issue 28 was an unexpected surprise of a great story compacted with good artwork. Mark Powers really captured the essence of the characters here from everyone from Cobra Commander to Duke. He wrote a wonderfully captivating story that kept me on my toes until the final page. He really mad me feel that the characters were in great struggle and turmoil in this issue.

We are thrown into a situation where Duke has been captured by Cobra. By an unnamed man that not even Duke knows. But even more of a surprise is the bringing in of Duke’s past. I really enjoyed learning how he came up with his name and why he joined G.I. Joe. It gave the character a real new level in my eyes. He was more than just the leader, now he is a leader with a purpose. And seeing him captured really showed how human he is. In the cartoon series he was treated as elite and sometimes as if he was above everyone else. As the story progresses we see how Cobra uses new unseen tactics to get what they want from people. Duke is held against his will made to watch as someone he loves is tortured right before his eyes. The new Cobra agent is also a very good paring for the company he keeps. He is cold and calculating. Very harsh and has no morals what so ever. He sets out to do his one goal and that is to get information.

The book also starts out with Flint in Russia with some new help named Vorona. As they search for people they can trust to help them out that aren’t affiliated with their enemies. Mike Bear is on art duties for this issue, and I have to say you can color me impressed. His visuals are outstanding and the characters are drawn very well. His storytelling is at its best at the end of the book with the confrontation between Roadblock and Cobra. It was exciting and very well drawn in my opinion.

All in this entire book has the potential to be on my pull list and after this issue I was very impressed. And do plan on picking it up next month to find out what happens next. If you’re a fan of the old G.I. Joe comics that Marvel put out a while back you will love this new storyline and really love this comic.
