Cobra Ongoing #10

Mike Costa (w) • Alex Cal (a) • Dave Wilkins, Antonio Fuso (c)

COBRA COMMAND CONTINUES! As the new COBRA COMMANDER lashes out against an unprepared world, the rest of Cobra questions The Council's decision... with deadly results. Meanwhile, the Joes search for a pattern in Cobra's attacks, and a fan-favorite character returns—but will even that be enough to turn the tide of battle?

*Retailers: See your order form for incentive information.

FC • 32 pages • $3.99

*Variant covers:
Vertically inter-connected variant Tom Whalen cover!

Bullet points:
• PART 6 of the G.I. JOE crossover, “COBRA COMMAND”!
• A rolling nine-issue crossover between all three ongoing G.I. JOE titles, all with the same art team!
• Ask your retailer about the special vertically inter-connected Tom Whalen variant covers on all three titles!

I guess that would be the closest for me as well, but I don't like any of them.

Incentive cover is the lesser of three evils. I wouldn't have minded Fuso's cover it if was only Krake. The decrepit hands and whatever the hell the thing at the top is just ruins it. I think there's a possibility it could be Serpentor's stupid fang headdress thingy from the Marvel run, which actually makes it even worse.

I love B, and I can't quite figure out why nobody else does.

For me, it's mainly because in typical Fuso fashion I have to try to decipher exactly what he is trying to portray here. As it is unclear, it makes me appreciate it less. Like I said above, had it been just Krake or not such a bad POV angle I would enjoy it more.

I liked B the best as well - so don't feel left out.

Fuso's covers are usually pretty clever, with this one its basically "The new Cobra Commander is being targeted by unknown members of Cobra."
For reviews of stuff and nonsense.

Cover B is very "Julius Caesar/Ides of March" IMO.

Thanks

Thanks for the follow-up. I think I probably stylistically like Atkins and Fuso more than most and don't care for Alex C.'s style as much as others.
Really looking forward to Comixology having this issue tomorrow. I want to read it first thing in the morning (West Coast Time).

I'm not sure but I don't think so, not the original Gaga-Costa Jinx anyway. I believe that the Baroness's half sister took a previously used name as Chameleon. I don't remember it ever saying that Jinx's previous code name was Chameleon.

Chameleon I

Postby Crimson Guard Immortal » Wed Feb 22, 2012 3:41 pm

That's Chameleon I, who was sent to get Chuckles back after the death of Jinx. She resigned from Joe out of disgust with Hawk for surrendering Chuckles' humanity by involving him so deep in Cobra.
Baroness' half-sister is Chameleon II, who works with Firewall.
It is really awesome how Costa ties everything in together.

Does this mean Chameleon 1 will become Jinx 2?
