Only realized this now, that this year 2012, is the 30th Anniversary of GI Joe Real American Hero. I was reading up on old GI Joe comic books these past few weeks when I chanced upon this brilliant kernel of truth. GI Joe is really special to me as it was the perfect creative outlet for that old pastime of playing soldier. Funny also that this is also the 30th year of Macross, two great childhood loves were created on the same year. How about that?
