An unofficial G.I. JOE Comics Guide

The concept was conceived decades ago by Roger Taft then during the spring CO-VID 2020 shutdown, he called Josh Eggebeen to pitch him with the question "Want to do a project that will take a year?" And so AFTER ACTION REPORT VOL 1 began with a successful Kickstarter in October 2020, final book was in hand in September 2021.

AFTER ACTION REPORT VOL 2 tells the story of Devil's Due Comics' Josh Blaylock who is credited in the early 2000s with bringing an entire genre back to the mainstream - 1980s properties. He started by obtaining the G.I. Joe license from Hasbro and blowing open the doors of comic shops as thousands of comic fans returned to the comic market to pick up the new G.I. Joe comic released on September 12th, 2001.

AFTER ACTION REPORT VOL 2 is only for sale on this website and wherever the authors can sell them in person, which is generally at conventions like Joefest.

  • This impact of G.I. Joe's return CANNOT be understated in the context of today's massive need for 1980's nostalgia properties.
