The Aristocobras!

Not to harp on it again so soon after last time, but honestly: Is it just me, or do a significant portion of the covers for Marvel's GI Joe series look like the setup lines for particularly outlandish dirty jokes?

Case in point:

"Okay, so a Scottish arms dealer and a brainwashing orthodonist with a metal codpiece are stealing a mummy, right?"

Cobra's plan to undermine America's moral center continues unabated.

Oh, I remember the punchline to that one: "That ain't a bandage!"

"Destro is Scottish?"

Yeah, of the proud Clan MacDestro. I understand the family estate is nestled in right between the Highlander's old stomping grounds and Aleister Crowley's cottage of black magic. It's kinda a crazy neighborhood to raise a family, but the block parties are awesome.

Yup, Destro comes from a long line of Scottish aristocracy.

I just want to say that the title itself - "The Aristocobras" - gets a cyber high five.

A few years ago at the Ottawa Fringe Festival there was a play titled "Cobra: The Musical" in which Cobra tries to stage a play to fund their crumbling infrastructure. Nothing like Firefly, Destro, Zartan, and The Baronness singing songs like "There's no room for love in Cobra."

Unfortunately it degraded into a long gay joke during the second act, otherwise I'd highly recommend it.

Interesting. Who drew the cover? It looks like Mike Zeck, with a little extra Tony Salmons thrown in for good measure.
