G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO WRITER - LARRY HAMA
LARRY HAMA is one of the most important contributors to the G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO mythology. When Hasbro was looking to develop the G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO Toy Line and Animated Series, they first went to MARVEL COMICS to develop the characters to launch them in a Comic Book Series, and LARRY was one of the key people involved. LARRY wrote 149 issues of the 155 run of the MARVEL COMIC BOOK from June 1982 to December 1994, the majority of the G.I. JOE File Cards that had short background details of each character featured on the back of the of the Hasbro 3 3/4 size Action Figures, and he created many of the characters. These File Cards have been included in the recent 25th Anniversary retro release of the G.I. JOE toy line.
