Interesting eBay Auction – GI Joe Sunbow Cartoon Art!!!!!!

A week or two ago there was an amazing auction on eBay. It was a binder full of over 500 character designs for the GI Joe Sunbow cartoon series! The auction ended up selling for over $2,200! I snagged the pictures to share with everyone before this disappears forever into a private collection. Enjoy!

New Joes! Prototype Mock Up of Jungle Bat with GREEN Head!

Hey guys, I recently picked up several cool items. First, I grabbed the Hall of Fame edition Bat MIB as well as the FSS 1.0 Nano Bat. Second, I grabbed a super rare Jungle Bat Prototype/Mock-up with the prototype/unreleased green head! In addition, I also snagged a hand-painted bat proto with “HFE” written on him as well as another Bat prototype. Looks like I have started a little “run” of Bat prototypes now! Enjoy the pics!

IDW GI Joe #2 Original Art!

It is no secret that I am a fan of the IDW Joe comics. Recently I was able to score what I see as the iconic page from GI Joe Vol 3. Yes, I know it is only through the second issue, but I think this page will have a lasting effect/image on the series. I acquired the original pencil drawing of GI Joe #2, page #2 with Darklon, Firefly, Croc Master, and the Baroness looking badass and taking over the small town.

IDW Special Missions #2 Review

Well I really liked not having to wait a month for the second issue! The story was a little slow, maybe a lot slow, it makes two in a row that are building and setting things up. So, in that respect, I like it. It gives a solid background and underpinning to the story. The art is solid. I love the retail incentive cover and cover B is my favorite regular cover. If the Special Missions books keep up the RI covers like this I will have to buy every single one. Without giving too much of the story away, the Joes reached the sunken ship first, followed closely by the Baroness, but they have not discovered each other yet. Serpentor also gets into the action, rescuing the children the Baroness kidnapped in exchange for information about what she was doing. It looks like #3 will be action packed, because at this point lots of things are coming to a head, should be exciting! Run out to your LCS and pick it up!

Skilled rapper, Joe fan and bud to the FP crew, SJ Wordburglar is about to drop a full-length, exclusively G.I. Joe-themed album on the world (Mu-a-ha-ha-HA!!) on May 30. We are big fans of his work and we’re particularly excited for this release!
