A G.I. Joe Comic Guide Book
to help YOU collect them ALL.
Featured in this website is all the information you'll need to know about the books that will help YOU become a completelist G.I. Joe comic book collector.
A Comprehensive Guide to All the G.I. Joe
Comic Books Ever Published
Authored by Roger Taft and Josh Eggebeen, After Action Report (AAR) intends to be a series of volumes
that cover all the known G.I. Joe comics and books ever published, maybe.
This is an unofficial book.
Each Volume will have its own Kickstarter as we move through the different series, publishers and 40 years of comics.
Each Volume will cover an era of G.I. Joe comics based generally off the publisher during a particular decade.
Each Volume will be a catalog guide of every known version of any Hasbro authorized G.I. Joe comic or book
produced during that Era including every cover variant.
Each Volume will have creator interviews, historical articles, highlight pages of cool G.I. Joe related items
& lots of fun facts.
Each Volume will have an original artwork cover created for that volume plus an original back cover.
Each Volume will have a checklist, in the back of the book, that collector's can use to track their missing comics.
Each Volume will drive collector's down the rabbit hole trying to get them all.
Below we would like to introduce to you our barely trustworthy but always faithful narrator, Private Pew Pew!!!

Why Make This Book?
The G.I. Joe community has a very loyal collecting community that has loved G.I. Joe since 1964. So many of those fans have published books on collecting G.I. Joe. The majority of these books are toy based from the many different eras of G.I. Joe as well as collecting the art & pre-production process.
With many of those authors being contributors or advisors to AAR, Roger & Josh plan to be spending hours, even years of their life, dedicated to preserving all aspects of G.I. Joe comics by creating guide books to cover all of the different versions of the comics from Marvel, Devil’s Due and IDW eras of G.I. Joe; the amazing variant covers; the history of their creation; the creators' stories; the international versions; all to help preserve the comics part of
G.I. Joe's history.
