GI JOE COVER GALLERY cover by gatchatom GI JOE COVER GALLERY cover by gatchatom
The Cover that was a cover, then a commission, and then became a cover again.

Originally this was the cover for Cover for GI JOE ORIGINS #19. It ended up being due right around the same time my daughter was born so it didn't work out for the schedule. So the idea went into a draw. Shortly after that I was commissioned to do a Snake-Eyes piece and I thought "here's my chance!" While I was working on if Andy Schmidt mentioned the cover gallery book and I told him about the piece I was working on and it again became a cover. I've been sitting on this for awhile. I hope you like it.

There is a version of this that's extra bloody, where the bullet is has been fired and is just beginning to exit the front of the trooper's forehead. I'll get around to posting it one of these days.

Beautiful! It has that early-mid 80's comic covers look, from G.I.JOE (Marvel).
