Your Comprehensive Guide to All the G.I. Joe Comic Books

Ever Published

Authored by Roger Taft and Josh Eggebeen, After Action Report (AAR) intends to be a series of volumes that cover all the known Hasbro-related 

G.I. Joe comic books ever published. Each volume will have its own Kickstarter as we move through the different series and publishers.

The first volume, starting with the Marvel Comics era. will be a catalog of every known version of any Hasbro authorized comic produced between 1982 and 2002. Included within the book are highlights for issues with significant histories (like #21 Silent Interlude), special issues (like Dark Horse Preview Ashcan), unique issues with inserts (like Mark Jewelers advertisements), trading cards or posters add-ons, along with history about G.I. Joe comics and interviews with famous G.I. Joe creators and artists.

Every featured cover will be scanned and presented in each volume - 144 pages bound in a trade paperback format. The possibility of creating several volumes per era has been discussed, but the plan as of now is one volume per era, except IDW which will require multiple volumes.

Certain key issues will have a highlight page featuring the history of the issue in a much more detailed way. Additional highlight pages will feature interviews with the creators of the Marvel comics to help explain the unique history of G.I. Joe comics.

Every good guide book has a legend, and AAR has created logos to help the collector quickly understand all the various versions of the covers.

The last few pages of AAR will have a condensed removable checklist that includes the versions of all of the covers listed in the book.  

Each volume of AAR will have exclusive original cover art by one or more of the prominent G.I. Joe artists who have worked on

G.I. Joe comics over the decades. This website page will have constant new updates as the book gets closer to completion.

Why Make This Book?

The G.I. Joe community is very different from most other toy collecting communities in that we have lots of people who spend hours, even years of their life, dedicated to preserving all aspects of G.I. Joe, especially the behind-the-scenes history of the brand.

Roger and Josh are willing to do just that: spend the next couple of years creating guide books to cover all of the different versions of the comics from Marvel, Devil’s Due, and IDW eras of G.I. Joe comics; the amazing variant covers; the history of their creation; the creators' stories; the international versions; preserving the comics’ part of G.I. Joe history.

The first book to be completed and funded is the After Action Report: G.I. Joe Comic Guide: Marvel Era Volume #1. These are the comics that started it all and featured the Larry Hama stories that have become legends ,with multi-billion-dollar-selling characters.
