The History of the After Action Report Series 


It’s always been Roger's dream to have a useable and handy guide book for collecting G.I. Joe comics.

A resource to track his collection when hunting for G.I. Joe comics in those long boxes at every convention.

From printed paper lists based upon Excel to modern day apps on phones, Roger and all other 

collectors have used all sorts of methods to track the gaps in their collections. 

These AAR books intention is to help fill gaps.

And so the on going steps of AAR's history:

---- CO-VID shutdown happens in the Spring of 2020. 

---- Roger calls Josh asks "Want to do a project that will take a year?"

---- Josh jumped on the idea with a big YES.

---- Then the scanning of the covers began and the writing of the book.

---- The first Kickstarter for Volume #1 premiered at JoeFest in Augusta, GA, September, 2020.

---- Successfully funded with 4 stretch goals reached in October, 2020.

---- The website goes live pre-selling Volume #1, February of 2021

---- One year after the first announcement of Volume #1 & after global printing & shipping challenges handled

After Action Report Volume #1 Marvel Era 1982-1996 arrived in Kickstarter's hands in September of 2021

---- The start of Volume #2 begins in October, 2021.

---- Kickstarter for Volume #2 starts in May, 2022

To Be Continued for years to come

For Roger, its been a near lifetime of thinking about AAR.

For Josh, just a couple of years of non stop computer work on AAR.

But for both writers, its been 40 years of searching, researching, buying, collecting, selling 

and trading G.I. Joe Comics.  

They both have a passion for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero comics that has NEVER stopped since 1982.

When it comes to tracking and filling out your own collection, you can't do better than what
