Kuso Vinyl has passed along some photos to us of the color sample for their next new release, Jesse Hernandez's Death Serpent. The only info they passed along was that it was 9 inches tall and most likely an SDCC release, but you can also see the warrior comes with a spear and shield as accessories.

It's pretty typical of Jesse's design style, which mixes elements of Aztec/Maya culture with an urban feel, but the Death Serpent looks a bit more sinister. That might just be because it appears to not have flesh on its skull and some glowing red eyes. Yeah, he probably lives up to his name pretty well.
