A Real American Fanboy part 3- the First G.I. Joe comic book


Today, we're taking a look at the first G.I. Joe comic book. One that's older than the Marvel comic. One that's older than the G.I. Joe toy, even. One that's full of cheesy schemes that would be too corny even for Cobra Commander.

Let's check this stuff out, huh?

The History of G.I. Joe- Part 1- pre-beginnings and Dave Breger




What was G.I. Joe before there was G.I. Joe? Well, first it was a phrase. And then it was a comic strip created by an influential but largely overlooked American cartoonist.

Special thanks to lupinia.net for the use of a pretty awesome image.

Starting August 15th, what I hope to be the longest, most obsessive, needlessly circuitous video history of G.I. Joe ever produced. Starting before the beginning, and covering everything worth covering, A Real American Fanboy's History of G.I. Joe intends to be an entertaining and informative video series, laden with trivia, humor, and all the possible knowledge I can both acquire and impart.

See you then.
