Built on a foundation of more than 200 original interviews, now in the works is the definitive “history of” and “art of” behind the scenes coffee table book on the 1980s and ’90s G.I. Joe. Packed with rare and never-before-seen photos, drawings, paintings, letters, memos, and even an unpublished Marvel “G.I. Joe” comics story, this book is a must-have for Joe fans as well as a significant piece of pop culture journalism. Relive the ups and downs from the perspective of the toy designers, show writers, comics artists, advertising executives, and marketers who made G.I. Joe the hottest brand of the ’80s.
July 2017 update: Chapters 1-15 are written. Chapters 2-14 are designed. Wrapping up 16-19 soon, I hope, and casting about for images. Still figuring out Chapters 19-20. Chapters 2, 5, and 8 need small revisions, but recently uncovered information and imagery makes that task a pleasure. Expected completion: 2018.
