Chinese GI Joe Comics!

I first learned of the vast existence of international GI Joe comics from GI Joe Comics International. It was there that I first saw the Chinese GI Joe comics, and up until last week, I had never seen them myself or had the opportunity to buy them. So when I saw these on eBay, I snapped up all 5 as soon as I saw them. As an added benefit, they will look great with the rest of my Chinese release items!

Joe: A Real American Hero #199 and prepare for everything to change in next month’s landmark issue #200!

New GI Joes, Comics and More!

Well guys I have been busy buying all kinds of stuff lately, so I will have a lot of great new, unique and rarely seen content coming up. In addition, I am going to start putting pictures of  my entire collection online. It will be a mammoth undertaking and something that will be work in progress for awhile. As a start, I have edited the “My Collection” page and formatted into different picture galleries. The First one up is a small portion of my Funskool GI Joe figure and vehicle collection. More will be added this weekend.

First up for some hard to find items that many have probably never even heard of are GI Joe comics from Egypt and India! There were 4 GI Joe comics produced in Egypt in Arabic. Pictured below are 3 of the 4. These are vary rare and I know of only one other person that has them (but this being GI Joe, I am sure there are others out there with them).

The next two pictures are of GI Joe #1 and #2 produced in English, in India by Funskool (who also produced the GI Joe toys in India). The Covers of these are in a lot rougher shape but the inner pages are white with bright colors. I believe there was only 1 other GI Joe comic produced in India.

In upcoming posts I will also share other rare international versions of GI Joe comics, so if you enjoy seeing all the different places that GI Joe was produced, keep coming back for more.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #194

Larry Hama (w) • S L Gallant, Hama (a & c)

G.I. JOE makes its way to Sierra Gordo, looking for the next piece of the puzzle that will reveal COBRA’s newest plot. But when they find that the evil corporation Revanche has a presence in Latin America, they could be involved in something far more sinister than the typical COBRA plot. What secrets does Revanche hold?

BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE – PART 1! FLINT is ready to disband the COBRA FILES team, but CHAMELEON will have none of it. But what neither one suspects is that TOMAX, the captive COBRA member, has an ace up his sleeve that will rock the team to their core. No punches are pulled in G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #7!
