Set Description

This was the first completed CGC graded set of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero by Marvel. (Then in 2010 CGC added 2nd prints into the mix and my 100% status dropped)

Currently my set contains:
(3) CGC 9.9's Universal
(35) CGC 9.8’s Signature Series signed by Hama, Trimpe, McFarlane, Perez, Zeck, Beatty, McLeod, and Golden
(12) CGC 9.8’s are currently being signed by Hama, Trimpe, and Steven Grant
(1) CGC 9.6 Signature Series (Hama)
(119) CGC 9.8's Universal
(5) CGC 9.6’s Universal

GI Joe issue #1 was released in June 1982 and holds the unique distension of being the first reported comic book that was ever advertised on television. Simultaneously the GI Joe 3-3/4 figures from Hasbro were released. The comic was always a springboard for the new toys as they were released. As new figure were released by Hasbro the comic brought them into the GI Joe Universe as we know it. Although Hasbro had a lot of control over the direction of the comic (and toys) the real genius of the Joe Universe was writer/artist Larry Hama. Larry Hama not only wrote every GI Joe comic, except issues 8, 9, 119, 143, 153, and 154, he also wrote the “file cards” that were located on the back of each action figure released (including those released with vehicles). These file card mirrored the background discussed within the comic.

I came across my first GI Joe comic with issue 24 and I was captivated! I spent the summer mowing and working in able to afford the first couple of dozen I had missed. Of course I read other comics; X-Men, Spiderman, New Mutants, Transformers, Secret Wars II (I think I was one of the few who enjoyed that one), etc. But when money was tight at times though my early teens it was GI Joe I made sure I purchased. As I got older I slowly let the comics go by the wayside as I embraced cars, dating, girls…the typical teenager’s life. In 1990 I sold all my GI Joe comics (along with several others I had collected) and I continued into my adulthood.

In 2004 I came across a box of stuff I had had in storage since…forever. Contained in the box was a Snake Eyes V2 and Storm Shadow V1 3-3/4 action figures still in their packaging! After finding out what they were worth I quickly sold them on E-Bay! And decided to take that money and find out exactly what ever happened to all the Joe’s after I had left them. I purchased the entire collection of GI Joe 1-155 and the 4 Yearbooks all raw in one lucky purchased and read away. I was hooked again! 7 years later I have this collection, along with 99% of every GI Joe comic printed in North America including those printed by Marvel, Image, DDP, IDW, and more since 1982. I am also having fun tracking down the many foreign issues of GI Joe that are out there and have managed to gather GI Joe (or Action Force as it’s called in many other countries) Comics from 19 different countries. In addition to this set I have 21 additional registry sets with other GI Joe titles from Marvel, Image, Devils Due, Blackthorn, Dreamwave, and IDW.

My future goals for this set include:
1. Getting 9.8’s or better for the (5) 9.6’s I have and the (6) issues I’m missing. (many of these 11 currently have none graded in 9.8)
2. Getting issues 1 through 50 in CGC 9.8SS. (42% COMPLETE)
3. Getting issues 150 – 155, Yearbooks 1-4, & Special #1 in CGC 9.8SS. (82% COMPLETE)
4. Getting various key issues (60, 93-96, 100, 102, 109, 110, 140-142, & 144) in CGC 9.8SS. (43% COMPLETE)

I have added a short summary, listed the creative teams for each book and scanned the cover to jog your memory for those of you who remember them as fondly as I did.

Now you know and knowing is half the battle!
