No food. No water. No weapons. With only the survival skills he learned in commando training, Wallace Weems (a.k.a. RIPCORD) fights an uphill battle to escape a hostile jungle and prevent a terrorist enclave from unleashing a terrible bio-weapon! If he lives, Ripcord just might earn Joe membership!

  1. can anyone tell me if this Origins series is as good as Cobra?

  2. Sadly, it is not. There have been a couple stand out issues, but even as a huge GI Joe fan I finally had to drop it.

  3. I see that someone has made it their pick of the week. I’d like to see a review, maybe I’ll go back and get this one. Maybe I’ve been wrong all this time.

  4. @THX7168 – I agree with @B.  Origins isn’t in the same league with Cobra.  However, it is occasionally very good.  The quality and focus seems to jump around considerably.  Some issue seem to tie in significantly to an overarching plot, but others (like this one and the last one) are relatively stand alone.

  5. thanks for the response, I guess I’ll stick with Cobra for now
