My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Definitely a step down after #1, mainly due to the lack of Cobra. Instead the enemy here are the Russians, or, to be exact, an Inuit secret agent hired by the Russians to recover information from an Arctic base that was designed to send fear waves across the world, but accidentally backfired and so the Russians all killed themselves.

Most of the issue is taken up with Stalker, Breaker, Snake Eyes and Scarlet chasing the Inuit, Kwinn across the ice and generally being outsmarted by him at every turn. But ultimately he suffers an attack of conscience and betrays the Russians but doesn’t really because he’s too honourable to do that but sort of does and…well…the ending’s a little muddled.

Not the greatest of issues but it’s not boring and is still generally an enjoyable read.
