About the Creation:
From the archive of Marvel Comics and Hall of Fame artist Bob McLeod, a recreation of the classic comic book cover, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #1.
"I did the inks on the original pencils by Herb Trimpe in the early ’80s for Marvel. The publishers at the time asked for more flash to be added and tasked me with adding embellishment to Herb’s tight pencils. Herb as you may recall is best remembered as the artist of The Incredible Hulk and the first artist to draw Wolverine for publication. This print is for all the great fans of GI Joe that I have met, and continue to meet.” – Bob McLeod
