The same numbering system used in some of the other Nordic countries was also used for this series which is the first issue that came out in any given year was called "Nr. 1 - 1988", and the 6th was called "Nr. 6 - 1988". All of the books had 50 pages. And unique to Finland this comic series finished the Marvel run, the only non-English language release to do this.

A total of 84 issues were released from 1988-1995. In 1988 only 7 issues were released and then 12 per year for the next 3 years. After 1991, only 10 issues per year were released from 1992-1995.

In 1993, the issue #133 was released for advertisement purposes in connection with GI Joe toys released that year. The comic is priced at a reduced rate then the initial series. A similar issue was released in Norway at the same time. (Norway Special).
