Hashimoto Mouse. Heard of it? Well, you have now. Find out how this cartoon isn't racist (except when it is), but is instead quite progressive (except where it isn't). And what the heck does it have to do with G.I. Joe anyway?

The History of G.I. Joe Part 8: Showcase #54 (and a Brief History of DC Comics)

Concluding our look at DC's Showcase G.I. Joe tryout, and the last G.I. Joe comic published by DC.


Also, a brief history of DC Comics' origins, some fun with Dial-Tone, and a chance for you, the Viewer, to decide who gets the G.I. Joe prize. (No actual prize will be given, but who cares? The contestants are all fictional.)
