Art for unpublished IDW G.I. Joe book posted on ComicArtFans.com

ComicArtFans member Shane Simek has posted 8 pages of lineart from an unpublished #0 issue that eventually got dumped for the story IDW went with when the format of the Joe book changed in production.

With art by Robert Atkins and a story written by Larry Hama, some of the stuff looks a lot more retro in nature, with some really dramatic action sequences as well, especially for only an 8-page layout.  Check out the great images right here.

New image of single-packed General Hawk shows some accessories

An image has popped up in some of the usual spots of the upcoming single-packed General Hawk figure due for release in the Rise of COBRA line.  This figure is considerably different than the version that comes with The Pit, but I don’t believe we have seen any accessories for him yet.  Well, this new image is a packaged sample of this figure…showing a jetpack!  A very cool touch, and a nice homage to the 1991 version.  Figure actually looks really cool.

Check out the image below!
