    Larry Hama delivers a sizzling script for ‘G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero’ #302 that is one part sombre and serious, as the Joes bury their fallen comrade, with the other part being a rather black-humoured story of horror and revenge as Serpentor Khan gets used to his new life as a walking mutant-zombie. A hugely entertaining issue.

    Comical Opinions

    G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO #302 brings the Joes home in a big way just in time for the biggest challenge of their lives against a new and improved(?) Serpentor. Hamas writing on the Joes hasnt missed a beat since the move to Image, and Mooneyham turns in career-defining work (lets get Mooneyham on Sgt. Rock).

    The fallout from a death looms on the hearts and minds of G.I. Joe with action building in the horizon. Stellar writing and visuals welcome back a new phase for the never-ending conflict between G.I. Joe and Cobra. The new series is off to a strong start and here’s no way you should be missing this on New Comic Book Day!

    Graphic Policy

    G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #302 is another fantastic issue that feels like it has kicked this long running series into overdrive and given it a shot of adrenaline. If you’ve never read the series, now’s the time to check it out while long time fans will be happy with where it’s all going and what’s teased to come.

    Larry Hama proved that gets how to use “silence” effectively in comics long ago, with the release of “Silent Interlude,” his memorable silent story published in GI Joe: A Real American Hero #21. GI Joe: A Real American Hero #302 isn’t entirely silent, but there are pages where Hama steps back and lets Chris Mooneyham and Francesco Segala’s beautifully dramatic visuals breathe, and the issue is better for it.

    Although they refer to themselves as mutants, call we all just admit this feels an awful lot like G.I JOE ZOMBIES?
