323 – GI Joe: Volume 3

It’s the last episode with our 80’s expert guest and we’re talking about volume 3 of the classic Marvel run of GI Joe by Larry Hama. We chose to jump on midway through the series as this collection kicks off with one of the most famous single issues of comics ever made in the 1980’s: Snakeyes’ wordless rescue of Scarlett. We talk about the inherent silliness of the Joes’ world, laugh at the villainy of Cobra Commander, and debate Joe names versus urban dictionary. Plus, we reminisce about that time David got owned by Yoda.
