The sub-title is Origin Of Cobra Commander, so that either means an all new flashback tale or a "clip show" of how the new CC wins the Cobra Civil War in the current titles.

After the CC tribute issue I'm a bit wary of ordering this.

I am too. We should put some pressure on TPTB to give us heads up on the content (i.e. how many pages devoted to an original story) before it hit the stands.

The cover says all new, all original! That sounds fantastic!

According to www.hisstank.com the Cobra Annual is all new written by Chuck Dixon:


Chuck Dixon (w) S L Gallant (a) menton3, Robert Atkins (c)

Now that the COBRA CIVIL WAR has ended, a new, more ruthless Cobra Commander has stepped into place. But how much do we really know about this new Commander? There's only so much we can tell you! In this first-ever COBRA ANNUAL, Cobra Commander's origin is finally revealed! Once a [CLASSIFIED] in the [CLASSIFIED], the Commander led a [CLASSIFIED] and stole from [CLASSIFIED] and [CLASSIFIED]. Soon, this caught the attention of COBRA. A choice was given: join us or die. Little did High Command suspect that [CLASSIFIED] would one day become the newest leader of COBRA.


Sounds good!

$7.99 at once is a bit much I think. Yes I pay 1/2 that for the regular sized issues and multiple titles each week at that price but this annoys me to no end.
The cake is a lie.

So... does this describe Monk's origin? I don't recall the chain of events in that arc.

I don't see the problem. It's a one shot. Besides, it's double the content so it's not like you're paying more for less. And honestly this isn't food or some other necessity. If $7.99 is more than what you want to spend then there's no shame in admitting that. I just wonder why anyone would complain about a company charging more for a product that offers more content.

Oh, I'll be getting it, Mac. I was jut a little shocked by the cover price. Luckily my comic shop gives a 25% discount off the cover price on new comics. That'll bring the cost down to $5.99.

"Cobra Commander's origin is finally revealed! Once a bad actress in the Hollywood hills, the Commander led a drug-fueled party binge and stole from Kwiki Marts and jewelry stores.
