Been wondering this for awhile...

In one of the issues where the Joes and Dreadnoks are chasing the rogue bat through the city (I don't know the exact issue number, because I only have the TPBs), there's a frame where it looks like Roadpig gets shot and killed (I'm not talking about when the Bat beats the crap out of him...after that). But no attention is called to it. Later, Zartan talks about not wanting to lose any more men to trying to capture the bat.

I only buy TPBs, so the Bat series is as far as I've gotten. Does Road Pig appear in any later issues, or is any mention made of whether or not he survived?

I don't believe it's stated one way or the other and I'm through Issue 28 myself.

I though many of the Nok's were in a large battle on Cobra Island which takes place around the 23 - 25 mark, I don't recall seeing Roadpig. Most of the nok's invloved were the classic ones from 1984 - 1986.

I have no proof, but I'd say he's not dead.

The online fans would have made a much bigger deal about it it he was dead...

Road Pig is NOT ..dah.. Dead!

Anyway, he is one of the favorites carachters of Larry Hama himself (as he stated in many interviews). I like him too, so as many, many, fans!

Road Pig will always be at the side of his true love... Zarana!

Not if Zandar has anything to say about it. ;)

Besides, Road Pig must be dead.

I believe he showed up recently in a DD Joe comic from the modern day series. The recent trend towards offing characters tends towards ones that Hasbro lost the name rights to. As stated before, he was also a recent figure with a nice tattoo upgrade, so I doubt they'll off him.

Just an OT dead Joe question, I work at a firehouse, we all have nicknames and we all get our ba...chops busted over them. What kind of grief over his nickname did you think Skidmark got?

I don't think DD can get rid of him, without hiting a nerve with Hama.

Unfortunatly Hama has nothing to do with the DD comic (other than Frontline 1-4)
