Half the Battle
#11 — Under the Mask
In the second installment of Half the Battle, I introduced the Moustache Squad, the ultimate sub-group in GI Joe. How does one make it into this exclusive fraternity? Well, take a closer look at the name of the sub-group — there’s a clue! When I first posted this strip, I was worried that sensitive, hardcore nerds would have a problem with the fact that I sneaked Snake Eyes in there. Much to my surprise, nobody had a problem with Snake Eyes being in the Moustache Squad, and, indeed, approval of him being on the team has been my most common feedback.
This strip was my answer to why Snake Eyes was on the team, created to quell those hardcore nerds who would madly insist that Snake Eyes doesn’t have a moustache. Because absolutely nobody seemed to have a problem with Snake Eyes being there, it’s kind of superfluous… but I did it anyway. Enjoy!
