Spirit and Mutt continue to battle Cobra in Millville. The Joes and the Guard hook up with the tribal Tucaros against the Iron Grenadiers led by Darklon in Sierra Gordo. Scarlett's sister shows up to have her life-support disconnected.
--Never let anyone tell you that Snake-Eyes couldn't speak.
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
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.
