Captivating Cover – Operation: Robot Assassin

It’s been a while since I’ve featured a cover. If you remember, with these entries I make sure not to check out what the inside of the book is about, and I often speculate wildly based on the title and/or the art. In the case of Operation: Robot Assassin, I can only imagine that the Joe team, led by the ever-sharp Bazooka are on a weekend pass in the Himalayas, and run afoul of a Cobra plot to assassinate the leader of a clan of ancient Yeti warriors. Oh, wait. The plot is right there on the cover–shoot. Well, I like mine better anyways.

This title certainly fires the imagination, though the plot seems like it could have come from any number of Ruby-Spears animated 80s action shows. Oh, and Bazooka in this painting bears a passing resemblance to Randolph Mantooth with a Selleckstache.

Operation: Robot Assassin


  • Of course, Bazooka didn’t think to wear a parka. Then again, maybe HE is the robot assassin! Snow Job looks like he’s about to spray him with snow, just to be sure.

  • I cant understand why Bazooka is leading the team for this mission. Shouldnt it be Alpine or Frostbite or someone more familiar with freezing conditions and mountaineering?
