Joe-A-Day: Snake Eyes Cover homage....

This was a fun cover sketch request at a recent convention. Marvel used to put out these books on a given month with head shots of multiple characters as border around the cover, kind of like a frame. They did this for GI JOE #53, and I remember it had this really cool bust shot of Snake Eyes. As simple as it is, still one of my favorite and memorable Snake Eyes covers.

Recently Marvel put out another blank cover for the Marvel Projects title, but with an updated frame of characters, and a blank surface in the middle. A brilliant idea to allow fans to get a custom cover done just for them, with their favorite character in an homage to the old school covers. So I got the chance to do a classic Snake Eyes like the old GI JOE #53, but a little more in my current style. Very fun to do, and very nostalgic. Man that's what GI JOE is all about for me!
