Memorable quotes

"Sc-Sc-- Sc-Scarlett!"

--Never let anyone tell you that Snake-Eyes couldn't speak.

Other notes


  • Though the cover calls the team the "October Guard," inside it's spelt "Oktober."
  • In the truck, the balloon with the slurred speech - presumably belonging to "Raggedy Mouf" - points at a kid with black hair. When Raggedy Mouf is later shown in closeup, he's blonde.

Items of note

  • First Appearances: Anibal
  • The corner box changes again - this time it's Hawk and Snake-Eyes - and they're the only Joes seen on the cover.
  • It seems that Cobra Commander wanted to take over Millville simply for manufacturing purposes.
  • The options on the Cobra Mood-Matic device include:
    • Joined a cult
    • Old grudge
    • Whining
    • and at least two others obscured by the Techno-Viper's hand.
  • Snake-Eyes' new face is revealed.
  • The letters page mentions Snake-Eyes' empty word balloons from issue #1 and how it's possible Snakes could speak, but it was always inaudible and extremely difficult for him.
  • Additionally, the letters page contains a poignant letter from a young man who had no father, and whose father figure, a Vietnam vet, had killed himself. In trying to overcome his grief, the boy was drawn to Snake-Eyes for comfort. He ends his letter talking about organizing a peace rally after witnessing the Tienamen Square massacre on tv. G.I. Joe may have been a lot of things, but it was never a pointless tie-in book.
    • Yo, Joe!
