Well Joe fans... This June (officially) will be the 30th Anniversary of the release of GI Joe: A Real American Hero #1!
30 YEARS!!! Hard to believe that it's been 29.5 years since I was asking Santa for a VAMP, FLAK, Stalker (which was my favorite Joe for a while), etc.
Although it was another couple years before I got into the comic series I have to say CONGRATS to Larry Hama, Marvel, and Hasbro! Not many comic series last 155 issues over 12.5 years. And cartoons, action figures, nearly 50 separate comic series from mini's to on-going series 30 years later, 2 major motion pictures, not to mention all the other merchandise!!!
A big thank you to Larry Hama and all those artist and writers that brought GI Joe to life over the last 30 years, thanks to IDW for getting GI Joe: ARAH going again, and
A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THOSE 3-3/4" GI JOE'S & HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO GI JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO!!!
