considering that one guy like this guy here is able to fight snake eyes one on one makes them incredibly badass.

Being a joe fan and all, sometimes, I prefer if the vipers are actually competent enough to put up a fight, and not die in masses in front of the Joes whenever they come into play like cannon fodder.

IDW vipers have a few who are actually badasses. Especially the one who fought snake-eyes.

thank you for agreeing with me.

I liked competent and badass vipers once in a while, especially those who can put up a fight against the Joes aside from Cobra Command.

Nice. a good blend of new and old. I always thought the old viper design was goofy with the full face shield and the goggles. I've often wondered whether the Hasbro designer added those as a joke.

anxious for your return on the book also. Gallant is desperately in need of a finisher/inker. Not sure why they chose to go with just straight pencils. (not that they are the first, its a bad trend for the industry, IMO)

Can't wait until you're back on this book. It's lost a ton of artistic punch since you left! Chuck's still the man so I'm sticking tight, but you'll be a sight for sore eyes in this humble fan's opinion. Excellent work as always! :+fav:

I really like the unfiform details you've added in. Those little details go a long way to adding credibility to Cobra. The patches in particular are the kind of elements I've always wanted Cobra troops to sport proudly.

I'm curious, what was the thought process behind changing the helmet away from the old face shield?

the other artist on Joe had started to establish a new look for the vipers. I was mixing the old uniforms with his new helmut design,

Thanks for the comments!

Very cool. It'd be nice if Hasbro would make these into figures. :)
