so far thats all but they made a huge impact in the comic universe that is for sure and again I loved every minute of it.

they have been referenced a couple of times in the book recently with Cobra Commander grabbing there file so they definately will be coming back, but DDP is talking about it unfortunetly , but I do expect them again.

I highly recommend the TPB again its one of my favorites and everytime I read it I come here chat up some red shadows talk and read the comics again!

They are/were great!

One of the things that MAF did better than GI Joe US was that it showed a fairly consistent team. The US comic often shows different teams, but it lacks the figurehead Flint was for our lot.

It must be said, though, that MAF and GI Joe are very much American style comics, and as such have a firm basis in superhero designs and creation. BAF has it's roots in war comics and as such is an almost entirely different genre. Duke era BAF is a curious hybrid and weaker than 2nd Gen AF BAF.

one of the things I really enjoyed about the Marvel UK stories is it focused on characters a lot of the time that we didnt get much focus on in the US Run. Members like footloose quickkick was great to see in Action and NOT HAVING SNAKE EYES the center of the whole story was great too.

I liked that Flint and Lady Jaye almost seemed like the story focul point instead of SE and SS

I didn't like Footloose's depiction in GI Joe he went very much under-used after his debut as well.

Kick off your Sunday shoes.....

As someone whose only glanced thru the first dozen MAF comics, I can say I wasn't that impressed. I will have to sit down and read them all I think. One slight hiccup tho, I'm not that interested in GI Joe so would like to know what comics are MAF or feature the Red Shadows? Has there been a definitive list or timeline put together? Where does it start and end for UK production? That kinda thing.
