Synopsis:
Stalker, Snow Job, Outback, and Quick Kick are sent into Borovia to rescue a newsman accused of spying for the U.S., and the attempt is failed when during the mission they learn he was released in a spy exchange. As they attempt their own escape, Outback is told by Stalker to escape as the others are wounded and Spigou (their contact) is dead, so their story can be relayed back. Meanwhile, the Commander has decided to quit Cobra so he can give himself and Billy a better life, and is shot by Fred as vengeance for all that Fred sacrificed to be part of Cobra. Finally, Hawk has sent word there will be no rescue for the Joes in Borovia.

Indexer Notes

story continues in G.I. Joe Special Missions (Marvel, 1986 series) #6 for Outback and next issue (#62) for the captured Joes. This issue originally commissioned by Todd McFarlane (artwork), but artwork recommissioned by Marshall Rogers for some reason (see G.I. Joe: Special (Marvel, 1995 series) #1 for more information). no letters page this issue due to full-pg. in-house ad by Marvel for upcoming Capt. America storyline replacing it.
