This was a great set. G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero issues #40-49. This had some epic moments from the series. You find out who killed the hard master, Cobra launches an ingenious plan to trick the Joes into creating Cobra Island, Zartan jnfiltrates The Pit, Serpentor is created, and finally Ripcord tips off the Joes to the location of Springfield, leading up to a massive assault in issue #50, a special double issue. Great story arc, some of the best of the series I remembered and it's still gr ...more

So handy having these things compiled into book form like this, and then discovering that my local library system carries the series! I screen these before letting my sons read them, but I enjoyed G.I. Joe toys and cartoons back when I was a kid, so it's fun for me, too, to read these stories (which I didn't do as a kid).

Overall it's pretty good... if you can overlook the poor art and editing. Dr. Mindbender was called Dr. Brainwave multiple times in the beginning and then at the very end again! Stalker was colored as a white guy in a panel and Gung Ho was drawn in two separate transport planes at the same time!

An excellent blend of the comic superhero style storytelling and a military war comics. Huge cast of characters and a great evil villain and organization balances the series well. Very recommended.

Just keeps getting better and better! If there was any complaint at all, it's that the new characters keep rolling in and older characters get lost.

More awesome. The story where Rip-Cord and Zartan get switched is awesome, and the assault on Springfield/rise of Serpentor is FANTASTIC. I freaking love this comic.

The end of the Golden Age of the GIJoe comic. The crazier elements begin to creep in here, but Larry Hama keeps them grounded. That won't always be the case.
