Dr. Venom Attacks The Pit – Part 3

Part Three is below…
Deep inside the Mobile Pit, activity was no more frenzied than it was in the lower level hallways, but suddenly an alarm flashed on the hallway wall.  Spectrographic analyzers built into the surface of The Pit had picked up something…  Cobra’s Venom serum?  Here?!
Mutt and Junkyard were the appointed Anti-Venom agents here at the base, so they mobilized immediately.
When the lights started flashing, Venom halted.  If the Pit could sense the Venom protocols even before deploying it, certainly they already had the antidote in the water treatment tanks?  He wasn’t sure, but he didn’t want to take any chances.
Suddenly the door burst open, and Mutt charged in, lifting his silenced Mac-10 submachine gun.  One quick burst dropped one of the Cobra agents, but Dr. Venom threw himself into the middle of the room, arms flailing.
“Help me!” he shouted.  “Cobra has kidnapped me and is forcing me to do their evil deeds!!”.
Dr. Venom had appeared before Mutt’s time, so he did not look familiar, and the G.I. Joe dog handler halted, just for a second.  It was just long enough.
Venom yanked his Luger forcefully from the other interior pocket of his white labcoat and pumped three rounds into Mutt’s chest.  Junkyard leaped, but one of the Cobra troopers swatted him aside with the butt of his weapon.  Both went down.
Venom smiled as his evil trickery even amused himself.

Awesome interview with Larry Hama on USA

USA Today uberfan writer Brian Truitt has posted some cool details and a couple of cover images from the upcoming Issue #155 1/2 of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, coming for Free Comic Book Day on May 1st.  As if that weren’t enough, he also spends some time interviewing the immortal Larry Hama, who talks about the return to his familiar stomping ground. Hama reveals some tidbits about the issue (which becomes an ongoing series with #156):

“Issues 155 ½ and on take place mere months after the events of No. 155: G.I. Joe headquarters has been mothballed, and the team’s been dispersed to different places all over the world. The Cobra organization is still alive and slithering, though — Cobra Commander is literally dreaming of rolling H.I.S.S. tanks into Washington, D.C. — and it takes full advantage of having no real American heroes running around. “They have to somehow get back together, and all the Cobras are trying to track them down and do them in,” Hama says. “It’s everybody against the Joes.”
