He does a great job giving Cobra Commander some very dynamic expressions, even though his face is at all times covered by either a hood or a mask. He also turns in some great nature scenes, as well as equally executing some fantastic battle scenes.

This issue is a treat, and I think, no, I KNOW that you will love both it and the series if you pick it up. And you know what they say about knowing…
