The plot was OK - a decent enough vehicle to build some action around, but the writing came off as comical (in a bad way) and the whole thing seemed centered completely around Abbey Chase. I actually found the tone surprising, considering the series tone IDW has adopted for their current take on the GI Joe team.
Anyway, it seems geared almost exclusively toward Danger Girl fans with the GI Joe team thrown in as background characters (and weak ones for the most part at that).
The story begins with GI Joe transporting some experimental German missiles that were salvaged from a wrecked freighter (they don't explicitly say from World War II, but I'm guessing from the age of the freighter). The transport team is attacked by Cobra, with the end result being Cobra stealing the missiles and Flint and Scarlett shot down behind enemy lines.
Because of the failure with Cobra, the Joes are suspended from action by the President, meaning they can't rescue Flint and Scarlett. To get around the suspension, Cover Girl contacts Johnny Barracuda, who she happens to know from the time they were the only Americans on a transport flight. Coincidentally, Abbey Chase happens to have infiltrated Cobra as a spy. Having to stop the missiles and rescue Flint, Scarlett, and Abbey from Cobra leads to a team-up of GI Joe and the Danger Girl team.
Continuity wise, this story happens after Danger Girl: Revolver, because Sonya Savage is on the Danger Girl squad.
As for the GI Joes, I would place this story in the Marvel Comics continuity somewhere between issues #25-#40, but there are a few inconsistencies; it would probably be safer to say this is a GI Joe squad set in the Danger Girl universe.
Reasoning for issues #25-#40:
-Destro is in his classic bare chest outfit
-No Dr. Mindbender or Serpentor.
-Cobra has a ninja squad, but the ninjas are not the Nightcreepers.
Reasons against issues #25-#40:
-Jinx is on the GI Joe squad, and she didn't join until after Marvel Comics issue 60
-Cobra has Battle Android Troopers (B.A.T.s), and they weren't created until after Marvel Comics issue 50.
As for my final rating, if you are not familiar with GI Joe or Danger Girl, this book probably merits a rating of 3 stars. The storyline is kind of run of the mill; the German missiles are sooo powerful that they could enable Cobra to takeover the world, but they don't really explain why. And while they have some of the classic Joes and Cobra members (Snake Eyes, Flint, Scarlett, Destro, Zartan, Baroness, etc.), a lot of the characters are only in the book for a couple of panels.
If you are a fan of GI Joe, or more importantly Danger Girl, I'd say this book merits 4 stars. It's hard to explain, but I got more of a Danger Girl vibe off the story than a GI Joe, more funny than tense. It was kind of nice to have the Danger Girl team thrown into the Joe/Cobra conflict.
