And unlike the tv show, people actually died! Well, except for Joes until they decided to wipe out like a quarter of the team within about 5 or 10 issues. That was what made me stop collecting it (yeah, they go through years of not being killed, and then all these Joes die within the span of a couple weeks? RRRRIIIIGGGGGHHHHTTTTT!!!!! Now, had a few died every so often or these died in one single bombardment, that would have been much more believable). Previous to this, I had every issue. It's funny how in comics people were allowed to die, yet on tv, we couldn't have anyone die.


BTW, Darkhawk was cool. I have every issue.
