Pages [1-5] [6-7C] [7D-10] [11-15] [16-19]
Back to the storyboards for the Season 2 episode, “The Rotten Egg.” These pages below are drawn by two or three artists, unusual for a Joe board as one artist tended to handle each act. There may have been deadline trouble, or a change from the director (or Hasbro) necessitated altering shots, and perhaps whoever originated these had already moved on to the next episode. What is certain is that Mike Vosburg drew some of what’s below — everything but the Wet-Suit close-up on the first page, the top tier of the second page, all of the third page, the first two panels of the fourth page, and probably none of the final page. Vosburg’s figure work (see big panel above) is angular, and he spots blacks — no sketchy pencil lines, no rounded or bulbous anatomy. Vosburg is a tremendously talented artist, a post for another day, but for fun trivia I’ll point out he was the only artist who both drew the monthly Marvel comic and also storyboarded for the daily cartoon. Coincidentally, to boot. Pages 7D, 8, 9, 9A, and 10:

Don’t forget that character designed Russ Heath also drew one single issue of the Marvel Comics series. And most characters looked a lot like their cartoon counterparts.
Right you are, JMM, but I was being very specific. Heath did most of the designs, but he never boarded for the show. And in addition to drawing issue #24, he also inked #64. Two of my favorites.
