You call this a report??!!!

The action heats up this month! Although the G.I. Joe operation in the arctic circle has taken a turn for the better, things are looking dangerous on the home front: Firefly and Crystal Ball have infiltrated the secret G.I. Joe base within the Chrysler Building. It's up to Mainframe and Joe Colton, the original G.I. Joe, to put a stop to Cobra's plot! You can't miss this incredible issue of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero!

Other notes


  • As he enters the Pit, Stalker briefly turns into a blonde white guy. Dag!

Items of note

  • First appearance: Russian Arashikage
  • Jane was the nurse, yet she's the one who runs off in pursuit when Joe gets shot.
    • As a nurse, she probably recognized that his wounds weren't serious enough to need her attention right away.
  • In the beginning of the book, Storm Shadow and Billy are discussing synchronicity. At the end of the book, Firefly and Crystal Ball are having the same discussion. What a coincidence!

Real-world references

  • The Pit's security codewords reference the book Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
  • The Joes land at the AFB in Thule, Greenland, one of Larry Hama's favorite references.
  • The Russian Arashikage leader looks like Sean Connery, who played a Russian in The Hunt for Red October.
