For a comic book conceived to push a line of toys, GI Joe was insanely well written and left me very confused as to why so many other comic books were dumb when I was a kid. I really don't want to contemplate how much effect it had on my formative years.

I loved The Nam, and read it faithfully for a couple of years. Another great comic by Larry Hama.

Only problem is, as noted, the real-time thing didn't work well with comics. A year is a long time in real life, but that's only 12 issues for a character to come into your life, do poo poo, and then disappear.

I didn't quite get it as a kid, but I love that they wrote Cobra as a cross between the Nazi party and Amway.

Did we demand it, though? Did we really?

Yeah, Yeah we did. The Bongo story line is awesomely weird.

It's a nice early Christmas present to have another issue up!
