Captivating Cover: Mountain Attack!
Welcome again as I take a look at a GI Joe book and judge it solely by its cover. Why? Because it’s fun, that’s why. This time, the subject is a Marvel coloring book, entitled Mountain Attack! It looks to be action packed, maybe even in the vein of the opening of a Bond film.
As we see our intrepid heroes Duke (although it could be Hawk), Stalker and Scarlett skiing down a mountain, a few quick thoughts come to mind. Are we in the Carpathians, and is that Dracula’s castle in the background? I can only hope. If said castle is the objective of the team’s mission, they’ve blown their cover anyway. Perhaps they’re on their way to pick up Stalker’s tundra ranger outfit and snow kayak.
And wait a minute, why is it that Duke is the only one wearing a nice, warm coat? Maybe it’s a rank thing, or the others just don’t mind. Whatever the case, I bet Duke always listened to his mom, “Now Conrad dear, if you’re ever attacking a mountain chalet being held by international terrorists, be sure to bundle up. You’ll catch your death of cold!”
