IDW Solicitations for July, 2013 have ominous undertones for ARAH G.I. Joe team

No, I don’t mean the title is going to be canceled or anything like that… I just mean that issue #192 sounds like it could be nasty…  Cobra is trying to gain the upper hand and the “mighty shall fall”.  Sounds menacing.
