i thought it was hilarious that they had Blades shouting 'Full Force!' when that's from the crude UK dubs of the US Joe cartoon...

ya I noticed that too, funny for sure, it was a very nice nod to that though, I appreciated the nod, but at the same time like you knew immediately that slogan was from later years

loved that they mentioned Jammer , really loved that as it includes more of the palitoy year characters, the ONLY thing that I wish they would have done, that they could have done easily was make the one guy blades is talking to that is wearing a uniform which is close to skips , SKIP. It would have been nice to see him in the comics and here it would have been a simple text inclusion, and maybe remove the mustache

this comic is HUGE for Palitoy Action force fans as it stars Blades from SAS and mentions others. EVERYONE on these boards that liked the comics before should have ordered 2 or 3 of these I got two of the convention versions and two of the diamond versions

BOTH are easily orderable too

I got my copy off eBay a few days ago and I have to say this is the worst Joe comic I've read in a long time. The script is something a 10 year old could have written and the art is just as bad. The colouring is shiny though.
Nice to see Blades in action, just wish it was a better comic.

I recently got the Con Comic from my comic shop a few months ago & loved it :lol: Shame that the Argen 7 set & others weren't O-ringed to be honest but I still love the fact that the foreign guys get the mention that they deserve. Come on Hasbro release the AF,Argen 7 & Red Shadows in O-ring style so fans like us can incorporate them into our Joe verse :-D
