Joe-A-Day: Roadblock...

Here was another of the GI JOE Battleground game character drawings. I've always loved drawing this character, and never had much of a chance during my run on the GI JOE book over at IDW Publishing. In the cartoons I get a kick out of his rhyming dialogue and quippy one-liners. It definitely doesn't translate over to the comics, but it made him memorable for me as a kid. Now, drawing him, I really like drawing the over sized guy just blazing away with a .50 cal, a HMG or some kind of chain gun.

This particular Roadblock was the Tiger Force version for the game.

I still haven't done a glorified Roadblock full cover or commission yet, so I'm really looking forward to that when it comes around!
