While in Augusta GA at JoeFest 2020 Jason and Joel sat down with the After Action Report guys: Roger Dean Taft and Josh Eggebeen. They have an incredible project in the Kickstarter pipeline right now. A reference guide covering Marvel's 1982 to 1996 run of comics including all titles and issue variations.

The Order of Battle Podcast episode 36 is here!

Jason and A went to Toylanta, in Marietta, GA. A handful of HTF o-ring GI Joes, some fun 12” GI Joes, Captain Action, insanely cool dioramas, and introducing A to the three day con schedule.

At the show we ran into Roger and Josh with their upcoming After Action Report: The GI Joe Comic Book Collecting Guide ( That book is coming along splendidly and will be incredible once in all our hands. Ed Schumacher of Joe Fest ( and Brian Kossin of Retro-Toy Con (, preparing for their shows later this year. And Jason went hard in acrylic with Encased Collectibles.

Lots of other friends, pizzas, late nights, nerd rants, lies, jokes and laughs. A solid show with solid friends and memories.

Questions for you!

Were you at Toylanta? If so what did you pick up and what was your favorite part of the show?

Are you a backer of After Action Report?

Will you be at Joe Fest in June? Kentuckiana in July? Retro-Toy con in the fall?

Aired: 7/28/2021

Roger Taft and Josh Eggebeen were once again able to sit down with us to discuss their Herculean project, After Action Report, vol 1: Marvel Era 1982-1996. But this time it’s not a Kickstarter dream hoping to be reality. This time it’s reality and we’re just waiting on a pallet of books from China to the US!

The conversation goes beyond volume one, looking at their roadmap of volume two - five. We talk about crazy foreign versions with wild deviations from Hama’s versions, uncovering truths about how the books were made, and comics professionals who are on board with this endeavor.

You seriously do not want to miss this series of Reference Guides even if you aren’t a big comic book collector. 

It’s going to be as important as Bellamy, RAHC, DeClassified, Action Figure Archive, and others.

I’m going to be chasing Roger and Josh for many years to come, begging them to give us more and more secrets and anecdotes as they continue educating our community in the realm of GI Joe comic books and appearances. 

Episode #43 updates the books completion & shipping.
