As a kid, my favorite comic book was G.I. Joe by Marvel. I had a handful of issues and when a Comic Book Store opened up near my house, I began collecting back issues while staying current the best I could.

 

Over the past year or so, I decided to read them again and I was pleasantly surprised how well they still hold up.

This wasn't just some licensed fluff, but a well written and enjoyable comic book series, thanks in large part to writer Larry Hamma.

 

Thanks mostly to the IDW collections, I now have the whole series and am about currently a half way through it. I've also read the complete Special Missions spin off. I'm looking forward to finishing it in 2017 and sharing more thoughts in the future.

My favorite comic as a kid was Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes, and later  just Legion of Superheroes. 

I could gush on and on about that, but nobody knows much about it.

I think I had a Surperboy comic that featured the actor from the TV show on the cover.

 

 

Transformers was mine.

 

And they crossover-ed with GI Joe! (more on that later)

 

G.I. Joe was sooo popular as a comic book, it had a spin off series: Special Missions.
