Saxton Moore is having a Gi Joe art contest over at his blog and Channel Frederator, and I decided to add an entry.
Back in the late sixties/seventies Hasbro introduced The Intruders to the GI Joe Adventure Team toy line. The Intruders were billed only as 'Strongmen from Another World' and their point of origin was never revealed. They looked like a mix of Neanderthal, Pro Wrestler, and Alien Warrior. Most likely this was Hasbro's attempt at creating a foe for the Joe's that could not be associated with any specific world nationality or ethnic group.
Anyway, I decided to make them the subject of my contest entry, which I did in the vein of a vintage paperback book cover.
