Captivating Cover: Marvel GI Joe #16
When I was a kid reader of Marvel comics, my main source of comics were newsstands at 7-11 and QuickTrip. Because of the often spotty distribution of some titles, I often missed several issue stretches of my favorite series. My early GI Joe comic collection skipped from issues 2, to 7, then to 17. I narrowly missed the events in this issue, but thankfully the next filled me in on the pertinent developments. To say they were important is an understatement. The Baroness’ HISS tank explodes with her inside, and Cobra Commander shoots Hawk in the back. Dang!
