Sorry for the late post. Monday’s supposed to be art day, with Tuesday a reserve should Monday get swamped. Anyway, happy Wednesday!
Today we look at the first few pages of storyboards from the Steve Mitchell and Barbara Petty-written season 2 G.I. Joe episode “The Rotten Egg.”
This episode has a great premise, that Leatherneck’s old rival is now running a military academy, and invites him to graduation ceremonies, but the two have a long-standing grudge that comes to a head. Also, Cobra’s peripherally involved. The emotional through-line — that grudge — is tight, and not that you’d know if from this art but voice actor Chuck McCann gives an Emmy-worthy performance as Leatherneck. Dick Gautier, elsewhere heard as Serpentor, is similarly stellar as antagonist Buck McCann — a play on the other actor’s name.
I should know who drew these Act I boards, but I don’t. If I find out, I’ll update this post later.
