The whole concept of a scene that spans multiple covers is something that I’ve really loved. I can only imagine the challenge involved for an artist in making that kind of scene work. It’s because of this that I find what Robert Atkins is doing over on his blog so fascinating.
He’s really laying out step-by-step what is going into his work on the covers for the series of G.I. Joe and Cobra issues soon to be released from IDW. He is building a very cool looking scenario featuring a number of different characters in a number of different situations, yet making it all blend together quite nicely.
Check out his progress post right here (where he goes through the first two covers) and make sure you keep checking back as I’m sure he’ll post cover #3 as soon as he is able. Very cool stuff from Robert Atkins.
