Review: G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1

As a child of the 1980s, Saturday morning cartoons were always my jam. My cousins and I used to sit in front of the television half asleep watching hours of our favorite cartoons. There were some forgettable ones, like the Kid N Play cartoon and the Teen Wolf cartoon. Then there are the ones who used to confuse us, like the competing Ghostbusters cartoons, one with the movie characters and the other one with a gorilla in a fedora.

Then there are the all-time classics no matter what age, the ones that even your parents played with. One such franchise was G.I. Joe as it captured the imagination of my generation. It gave us a tease and had us imagine what we believed the military to be. In the comic book series of the same name, Larry Hama gives fans an excellent story in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1, one in which we see our heroes at their best.

We are taken to a train somewhere between New York City and Washington DC, where a special envoy is protecting a VIP, Dr. Adele Burkhart, who is in charge of a weapons system designed to annihilate all life on Earth. Of course, this trip gets interrupted, as COBRA boards the train and kidnaps the doctor. This leads to G.I. Joe going on a daring mission to rescue Dr. Burkhart from COBRA’s secret island lair. As they land on the island, a battle breaks out between GI Joe’s forces and COBRA, causing COBRA Commander, to unleash a weapon that Dr.Burkhart developed. By the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1‘s end, G.I. Joe thwarts COBRA’s attack.

Overall, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook #1 is a throwback issue which harkens back to the comics of yesteryear. The story by Hama is fun. The art by the creative team serves its purpose. Altogether, an exciting story that feels dated but remembers to entertain.
