Thanks in advance for any info. on this.
It is technically in continuity, given the reference in the G2 crossover issues, but I think not.

There are no creator credits listed anywhere on the issue, so if Larry Hama scripted this issue, well, maybe he didn't want to be credited. Continuity wise, though, where this issue takes place doesn't make any sense. Scar-Face is alive and well functioning as Cobra Commander's driver, when he should be long dead. Characters mention that Dr. Venom is dead, but Scar-Face died at the same time, unless we're to believe he didn't die, which was a theory I posited a while ago
This issue, if read between issues #32 and #33 would mark the first chronological appearance of Professor Appel and Dr. Mindbender. But more than that, this issue spoils the epic mystery identity of the Hard Master's killer in a very lame, undramatic way.
The issue comes packaged with Scar-Face Cobra Officer and Crimson Guard Fred Broca. The problem is, the Crimson Guard Fred does not appear in this issue, even though it would make logical sense of him to star in this story at this point in the timeline.
I get what Hasbro and the creators were trying to do with this issue, but it just did not deliver. I recommend not reading this issue, or at least not considering it canon with the rest of the series.
