Cobra's conquest of Springfield begins with the dry cleaners

Even as the rest of the world reels from the shocking news that Cobra Commander has been handed the key to Springfield, Illinois, the ruthless terrorist organization has begun its infiltration of the city.

In this new video, G.I. Joe artist Robert Atkins discovers there's something different about his hometown, beginning with the employees at his local dry cleaner and restaurant, and continuing through to the magazines at his doctor's office, which are surprisingly up to date (Cobra Weekly and Cold Slither and a cover declaring Cobra Commander "Man of the Year").

The stealthy integration into Springfield life occurs ahead of the April 9-12 G.I. JoeCon, the official G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention, where Cobra is expected in full force.

Suggestion to attendees: If you become sick or injured, do not see Doctor Mindbender.
