Comic books and G.I. Joe have a long history together - in fact, the first four-color appearance of Hasbro's G.I. Joe came courtesy of DC Comics' Showcase in 1964! Comic books are the lifeblood of the G.I. Joe vs Cobra universe. In between cartoon series and movie premieres, comics are the ever-present narrative outlet for the tales of our favorite toy line. They have informed our opinions of the universe since the very beginning, and even Hasbro is subject to their influences - witness Baroness and Kamakura - popular characters that were first created in the comics.
