G.I. Joe

Origin Story Episode Fifteen

Origin Story Episode 15 Website CoverThis time around, I have three … that’s right, THREE comics in ONE episode! I start off with the last of my FCTC-era Superman books for this show, which is Superman #7, then head over to Marvel for some military-grade violence! First, there’s the first issue in an UNLIMITED series with The Punisher #1 followed by the start of my all-time favorite G.I. Joe storyline with G.I. Joe #61.

ORIGIN STORY EPISODE SIX

origin-story-episode-6-website-logoIn the sixth episode of Origin Story, I wrap up my coverage of the ultimate Hasbro crossover by taking a look at G.I. Joe and the Transformers #4.  Do the Joes and Cobras save the world with the help of the Autobots?  Will Hawk and Barbara get back together? Does anyone care about the Anthony storyline? Plus, Bumblebee becomes Goldbug!  And I ponder the nature of nostalgia.

With this episode, I return to the series I started with, G.I. Joe and the Transformers. I take a look at issue #2 and see how the Decepticons make an alliance with Cobra and possibly plan to double cross them. Are we working toward a big conclusion or are things just dragging along? Listen to find out! Plus, I reminisce about October/November 1986.

Thirty years ago, I begn collecting comics for the first time.  Now, I’m taking you back to those days with “Origin Story,” a comics podcasting miniseries where I will look at all of the comics I bought in 1986-1987 in “real time.”

In this first episode, I take a look at the book that started all of this, which is a crossover that every kid would have loved to see play out because they had already been playing the crossover in their basements and bedrooms with their toys.  I’m talking about Marvel Comics’ miniseries G.I. Joe and The Transformers.  This time around, I will summarize and review issue #1 of the series.
