Fantastic Robert Atkins cover to the Canadian JoeCon comic revealed!

And wow is it looking GOOD.  Knowing the guys behind the Canadian JoeCon like I do, I’m sure they are absolutely giddy about having a guy like Atkins draw their hand-made characters, and deservedly so.  A fantastic cover.  LOVE Atkin’s Black Ice.  The cover was colored by Simon Gough, and you can check it out at JoeCanuck.com.

The final cover can be seen below:

Now, not only do we get to see this fantastic cover, but as has become custom, Robert Atkins took to his terrific blog and gave us some fantastic in progress shots of creating this cover.  Hit up the links below to check out Robert Atkins talking about creating this fantastic cover:

Soooo good.

    Help me out here; was the “JoeCanuck” character always conceived of as being black, or is this just the result of massive quantities of unsold Renegades “Ripcord” figures abounding?

  • Scramble

    JoeCanuck was conceived of as an anyman, a lot like the Steel Brigade, with no skin shown to indicate ancestry. This time we fully unmask JoeCanuck in the comic, turning him from a generic character into the face of our universe.

  • Jester

    And that decision was occasioned by the availability of massive quantities of a particular Renegades figure?

  • Scramble

    In the exact same way the original JoeCanuck was occasioned by the availability of massive quantities of a particular two-pack.

  • Jester

    That’s what I wanted to know. The whole figure/affair is still incredibly disappointing, but at least now somewhat less inexplicable.

  • Scramble

    Sorry to hear that, but fortunately we get enough positive reaction to all the hard work that goes into the con and the exclusives every year to still make it worth it for us.
