G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291





G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291 


This is more of the G.I. Joe experience I have been expecting. G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291 is what I am used to. The backside of the front cover with all kinds of information about the comic book and the company behind it also references what is happening. G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291 is the first part of High Stakes. There is a corrupt casino on Cobra Island. The Joe team is on a mission to save hostages on a train. There are also flashback memories that confused me a bit.

I am totally unsure of who Dawn is in G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291. She is like a female Snake Eyes but has some of his memories somehow. Dawn, Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Stalker and Mongoose (another character I am not familiar with) are on this mission. We flash back and forth between a jungle war (Vietnam perhaps) and modern day. We also flash over to Dr Mindbender and Laura 343 (a female Crimson Guardsman) in the casino.

The issues families can and will have with G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291 are violence, blood, lack of attire, and more. There is talk of hostages, clones, casinos and more. G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291 feels really science fiction based on being able to record someone's memories and let others use them. Or to be able to use them yourself. I think Dr. Mindbender plans on making his very own Snake Eyes clone that is loyal to Cobra. I am not clear on how that would work. It also does not sound very ethical.

There are twenty pages of some nice art in G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291. There is also reference to a new and improved Brainwave scanner in G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291. This could brainwash anyone to be whomever the person using the device wants the other person to be. I remember that device from the past G.I. Joe comic books. G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291 has action, intrigue and more in it. There are also plenty of things being setup in this storyline.

The flashbacks can be pretty scary in G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291. Dawn is having issues with the memories of Snake Eyes. Does he still have his memories? I have no idea how that happened. I may need to dig into some past issues of G.I. Joe and figure out what has been happening with these characters. G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #291 is definitely for the older members of the family only. There are numerous depictions of war in this comic book.
