Antonio Fuso reveals variant cover for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #214

The May solicitations from IDW Publishing were released a while ago, and while we saw the main cover for A Real American Hero #214, any variant covers were omitted. Well, thanks to Antonio Fuso’s Twitter account, we can now get a look at one of those other variant covers.

Fuso is best known as the artist for the critically acclaimed Cobra and Cobra Files title from IDW Publishing, and I find it fascinating to see his take on the mainstream characters of Snake Eyes and Scarlett.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #214 arrives in May, and features a potentially landscape-altering event in G.I. Joe history. Don’t miss it, and check out the variant cover below.
