4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining nostalgia trip. 5 Feb 2005
By T. Wylie - Published on Amazon.com
What a fun book! Anyone who grew up during the salad days of the 1980's G.I. Joe cartoon and comics series will appreciate this exhaustive compendium of history, trivia, and minutia. Either as a nostalgia trip or as a means to fill in any missing holes from your comic or cartoon collection, this book will surely please any die-hard Joe fan. The author not only has a firm, loving knowledge of Joe lore, but with sections dedicated to goofs and implausibilities also provides matter with tongue firmly planted in cheek. The book chronicles the soaring highs and frustrating lows of the entire Hasbro-related Joe universe. Action figure collectors beware: this book has very little to offer in the way of figure collecting or appraisal. Also (most likely due to copyright issues) the only image(s) you will see are on the cover of the book. I had to bump down the book a star for lack of images relating to either the cartoon or comics--which in my humble opinion would have made the offering perfect. Definitely worth the price of admission....

5.0 out of 5 stars The Absolute Textbook of GI Joe and COBRA 23 Feb 2004
By Jason Terrell - Published on Amazon.com
If there were college courses dedicated solely to the subject of GI Joe and COBRA, this would be the one stop textbook on the subject and Lars Pearson would have the Doctorate in Joeology. If old school GI Joe was your cold war kid religion, then this is it's bible. If you just jumped on the new school Image bandwagon, read about the rich mythology you missed. Bless you Larry Hama for never dumbing down the comic (until it jumped the shark with the toyline, circa. Cobra-laaaa, but that wasn't your fault.) and allowing even the preteenage readers a chance to begin to understand news and the world. Thank you to the cartoon creators for the surreal clash between childish fantasy and hard cold war reality. Thank you, Lars Pearson, for writing this excellent guidebook, as a fan, for fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Encyclopedia of the World of GI Joe 3 Oct 2004
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
If you are a huge GI Joe fan (like myself), then this book is a must-have! The book outlines everything you ever wanted to know about the world of GI Joe cartoons & comics (including the first few comics currently written by Devil's Due Publishing). The author goes into great detail about analyzing each cartoon episode, outlining storylines including mistakes within the storylines and animation.
If you never read the original Marvel comic series, the author does an excellent job of summarizing the entire comic book line from beginning to end.
This book is an excellent book and is absolutely bargain priced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need the artwork to make it a masterpiece. 11 Feb 2007
By Larry Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Everthing from A to Z was included in this unauthorized guide to this 80's generation hit. Having said that, it would have been nice to include a special section showing all the comic book covers for the series. The artwork included would have made this guide a complete masterpiece.
