Captivating Cover: Combat Ready!
I never thought I’d use the terms generic and ninja commando in the same sentence, but this early 2000s coloring book has forced my hand. I’ve found the most interesting coloring book covers of the past incorporated either a multi-character scene, or even an out of the ordinary fourth wall breaking subject.
Speaking of which, and I know I’m straying off-topic, but one of my favorite childhood coloring book covers remains not a GI Joe subject, but this activity book from the relatively obscure Marvel property Crystar. Fantastic and wacky stuff.
Back to the Joe cover, Snake Eyes incorporates elements of both his first and second new sculpt era releases, including arm and legs wraps, and a funky silver visor. I’ve never understood how he’s supposed to be able to see out of that thing. In an odd bit of accessorizing, he’s also taken to wearing spats. Excuse me, ninja commando spats.
