Item description for G.I. Joe - Frontline Volume 3: History Repeating by Dan Jolley...
To long-time G.I. Joe fans, the codename "Chuckles" conjures up images of an undercover agent with a love for loud Hawaiian shirts. Those days are long gone now; yesterday's methods don't apply to the modern world of espionage, and yesterday's soldiers have learned to adapt quickly or die trying. After spending four years working his way up through the Cobra ranks, Chuckles is called in to broker a deal with an independent commando leader. The Joes plan to use this meeting as an opportunity to extract Chuckles safely, but when G.I. Joe and Cobra descend on the meeting place, they find a deadly new enemy waiting for them. Tyler Wingfield wants revenge for his father's death, and he'll betray both sides to reach his goals.

A NICE CHANGE OF PACE STORY Jul 27, 2005
G.I. Joe Frontline: History Repeating is an interesting Joe tale in that it is two interconnecting tales, although they could be read separately on their own. The other interesting thing is the cast of characters. This is a bit of a toned down Joe story. There's no Snake Eyes, no Storm Shadow, in fact there's almost zero involvement by those major players we've come to expect. That makes the story a bit refreshing and a decided change from previous G.I. Joe trade paperbacks. That's one reason why I enjoy the Frontline stories so much, they tend to go after some of the "smaller" scale stories.
When a plane carrying a deadly experimental virus suddenly disappears right off radar, the Joe team is called in to investigate. The plane is stolen by a rogue paramilitary group led by Tyler Wingfield, the son of Vance Wingfield who formed Strike First, a group that supplied personnel to Cobra. "Chuckles" the Joe operative who has infiltrated Cobra is called in to broker a purchase of the virus on behalf of Cobra-or so Cobra thinks-but his real goal is to be a point man for the Joe team to swing in and recapture the virus before it can do any damage. But Wingfield discovers Chuckles' true affiliation and uses him to initiate an attack on both the Joe's and Cobra as revenge for his father's death. He now plans to launch a missile carrying the virus. Can he be stopped in time?
Again the refreshing thing is the cast in this book. The Joe team consists of Beach Head, Air Tight, Flash, Trip Wire, and Chuckles, operatives who normally don't get much of a chance to shine. It's nice to see a story dedicated to some of the lesser known Joes rather than the usual starring cast. The book is also less action-oriented and more of an espionage thriller with covert ops, CIA moles, double agents, all thrown into the mix. A very nice change of pace story. Brandon Jerwa provides the story with pencils by Eddy Barrows and Inks by Cory Hamscher.
