Again, I worked on this sketch at Baltimore Comic Con, but will be turning it in to CGC, to be graded at NYCC. I've enjoyed working on these GI JOE blanks. Anytime I did a GI JOE character on other books, it just felt out of place or I felt the connection was a bit forced (though we did have some good ideas because of it). Now we can do blank cover sketches directly on a GI JOE book, and it creates an original cover for your book. 

Firefly - 698

I always like drawing this dude!

I have a new set of art books titled- " Robert ATKINS Art: Declassified"  They are 60 pages each, full of the black and white sketches that you've seen on my blog these last few years.

I have 3 volumes. Vol. 1 is strictly GI JOE artwork, Vol 2 is MARVEL Comics Characters (X-Men, Avengers, SPIDERMAN, Etc...) and Vol. 3 is DC Comics characters (SUPERMANBATMAN, JLA, etc..) These are for sale, you can simply email me directly and payment is taken through paypal. They are $10 each and $5 flat rate shipping for 1 or all 3. I have these available at the conventions I set up at, but if you can't make the show, you can purchase them through my blog as well. You can email me if you need more details.


  1. Firefly looks amazing! Great job! I love it! I appreciate all the effort you put into this cover! Thank you again! - Dave Maloney
