The end is here, and so I face, my final curtain–

The last IDW issue of GI Joe came out this week, 300! Tanks for the memories. 

Don’t go losing your head!

But the last IDW GI Joe drops today… 300, the end of an era! I wish all the best to the next creative team that gets to work…

All work and no play–

Pisses Storm Shadow off to no end. Seriously, any of the Joes do anything around here? 

Wait for it!

Cause the final issue doesn’t drop until next week!

Am I the only one working here?

Ever wonder if Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow get annoyed with everyone else’s output?

Ouch! Right in the store!

No crotch, no Krav Maga! And if anyone accuses me of stealing layt-ers out ideas from Butch Guice- I deny everything!

Get some fresh air–

Sho Kusogi- er, Storm Shadow out in the woods.

Flight status? Delayed

It’s always a pain to make dog fight sequences look exciting– hope this worked.

Explore your national parks!

Although I’m sure this is standard issue equipment for a picnic. 

It’s a very special day!

Lay down! Try to relax!

Are you on dope?

Seriously, I’d love to know what the designers were smoking when they came up with the Toxo-Vipers? The Cobra Incinerators aren’t much better, but at least their helmets…

Look mom, I’m a meme!

The classic way to irk your artist in one simple paragraph– “The army on horseback extends as far as the eye can see…” Grrrrr. The only person less…

The gang’s all here

I had a writer tell me once that just because he wrote large crowds into a shot, didn’t mean I had pick an angle that showed everyone; but…

I’ll be seeing you, don’t know where, don’t know when-

This being my last dance with GI Joe, every shot of a character I wasn’t sure how long they’d be in the storyline became a good-bye. Most people…

I’m sorry, I can’t do that, Dave.

Little Hal-9000 lens action going on in this panel, which I thought turned out ok. For me, that’s saying a lot.

Oh, you want to play, boy?

In this scene at the Cobra casino and resort, the bell hop uniform was supposed to be modeled after the Playboy club outfits from days past. I didn’t…

Guest starring~ Charo! (not really)

Most artists pick celebrities to reference for characters, as some Joe figures are obviously based on actors from the time they were designed, and even those that weren’t…

Bustin’ out all over

In a post from a long way back, I said I always saw GI Joe as the US version of the 00-agents in the Bond films; only with…

Slip sliding away

Now and then I do like the motion of a page, and as I said before I prefer things to feel more like a movie. That said, I…

You got to move it, move it…

I hate when characters always move in unrealistic ways, even when doing “heroic” stuff; but sometimes the script limits you. I like how Zartan is puling his arrow,…
