Notes of Interest

"The Adventure Team Chronicles" is the first graphic representation of the team to be printed in standard American comic book size (6 5/8" x 10 1/4" [17 x 26 cm]). In this episode it is revealed that the Adventure Team Commander had previously rescued Wild Bill, the future helicopter pilot of the 1980s G.I. Joe Team (Special Counter-Terrorist Group Delta), from a crash landing in the Brazilian jungles. The long-time reader of the A.R.A.H. Marvel series is treated to the appearance of a younger Dr. Venom (c. 1975), before he joined the Cobra organization. Raiders of the Lost Ark enthusiasts will notice Mike Triumph's mention of a certain Dr. Forrestal and his detailed maps of parts of Brazil; he is a fictitious archaeologist who died in the Peruvian Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors back in 1935.

Full Details

Cover (page 1): Preview photo of the new 12" G.I. Joe Marine action figure.

Page 2: An explanation of the cover, contents and the creative team credits are represented on this page.

Pages 3-6: "What's Happening, Hasbro?" provides many images of the 2011 Wave 3 "Pursuit of Cobra" 3 3/4" action figures and vehicles, with new 25th Anniversary treatments of such characters as the Steel Brigade (trooper), Jungle B.A.T., Crazy Legs, and the Rock Viper. Four new 12" figures are also released, National Guard, Fire Fighter, Police K-9 Unit, and U.S. Army Paratrooper.

Page 7: "The Cartoon Review" delivers details about Episode 4 of G.I. Joe Renegades, the latest animated Joe series, discussing "Return of the Arashikage" Part 1.

Pages 8-9: "The Adventure Team Chronicles" returns with Part 2, as Commander Mike Triumph hacks his way through the tropical rain forests of Brazil. Mike recalls his rescue of a wounded pilot who had crashed there years before (Wild Bill), and he could not have done it without the aid of a local tribe (a Brazilian branch of the fictional Hovitos of Peru, borrowed liberally from the Raiders of the Lost Ark movie). Now the Adventure Team leader is back, for he has obtained information that eighteen members of the tribe have mysteriously disappeared, thanks to the concerned message of a visiting missionary. As he advances through the dangerous flora and fauna, the Commander drives towards a dead zone nearby, discovered by his previous research of advanced satellite mapping. Once there, he swiftly locates a newly-built, fenced in compound. He spies the chief's missing son, acting as some type of guard, though he appears to be in a trance. At that moment, an animated vine rapidly wraps around his neck and lifts him off the ground. The Commander dangles helplessly in the strangling grip of the bio-engineered Man-Eating Plant. At this precise moment, Dr. Archibald Monev (the future "Dr. Venom") steps cheerfully into his sight and ruthlessly welcomes his helpless victim to his laboratory in the jungle. . . This story continues in the next monthly issue.

Page 10: The "G.I. Joe Club Dossier" delivers some of the history of Ace (not to be confused with his A.R.A.H. counterpart), the reckless, daredevil Air Adventurer of the 1970s.

Page 11: A top secret letter containing the Air Force's expulsion of Ace from the ranks, and of his subsequent reassignment to "Team Code Name Alpha", is enclosed.

Page 12: "Perfect Enemies" is the 1-page preview to the 2011 G.I.JoeCon Convention Edition comic of the same name (it is actually the first page of the comic). The story begins as anchorman Hector Ramirez addresses his listening audience before studio cameras. He has received video footage of a Brazilian Cobra operative known as "Steel Cobra", who claims that he has a member of G.I. Joe as his prisoner. The chrome-faced villain issues a challenge to Captain Claymore to come find his captured teammate. Back at the Pit III in Utah, the head honchos of the Joe team (Hawk, Duke, Flint, Chuckles and Sure Fire) have gathered together to discuss this turn of events. They know that the hostage has to be Dial-Tone, whose plane has gone missing. Hawk makes a statement that he's calling in Captain Claymore from out of retirement. . . This story continues in "Perfect Enemies: G.I. Joe vs. Cobra" #4.

Page 13: A dossier of the Night Stalkers Officer (a.k.a. "Night Stalkers Commander"; based on the 2007 "Cobra Officer" v.5 Convention figure), the Cobra covert operations leader in charge of an all-female unit.

Page 14: The "G.I. Joe Comic Review" covers details of IDW's "Real American Hero" #160, written by the "Godfather" of G.I. Joe, Larry Hama.

Page 15: In the "Regular Joes" series, the 12" Joes are holding a recruitment drive at the same time as the 3 3/4" figures. Unfortunately for them, they're losing ground, because their benefits package can't compare with their smaller rivals. They do have an ace-in-the-hole, however: their ladies don't come with plastic clothes. . .

Page 16: "Order from the G.I. Joe Collectors' Club!" - some toys available through the Club are displayed.
