Author: Larry Hama
Art: Chris Mooneyham
Covers: Andy Kubert and various others for variants


On to the issue


We begin Issue 303 with events unfolding, following issue 302 and still reeling from the aftermath of the explosion of the bio-weapon deployed in 301.

Duke and others at Joe HQ are intercepting Cobra communications. Our good friend Dial-Tone has the intel:

Image

Revanche AI is on their way to Cobra Island to make a deal.

Image


Revanche is an AI that has constructed and inhabited android/robot bodies of various shapes and sizes. The queen appears to be a gigantic caterpillar like creature. But there are blue ninjas, and other formations as well.

Image

Serpentor Khan asks for a test of Blue Ninjas that have been upgraded by a GALEN 2000 self-contained Surgical Bot. Serpentor wants a test versus an enhanced B.A.T.

Image

It ends up pretty grisly.

Later Serpentor asks for a volunteer to be enhanced by the Surgical Bot. A zombie mutant Viper volunteers and there are some more disturbing scenes of transformation within the device.


Serpentor Khan and Mindbender make a deal with the evil Revanche AI. An enhanced hit squad is then deployed on a mission.

They are sent to take out our favorite couple, living in peace in a cabin in the High Sierras. And their little dog, too.

Image



There is a terrible battle at Snake-Eyes cabin with the enhanced Blue Ninjas.



And the issue ends with a haunting image sent from the camera of the assassin automaton before it self destructed.

There are more details throughout the issue, so I encourage you to get a physical or digital copy for yourself to see what happens next! Some great art in the issue...
