I have mentioned a few times how View Master reels played a large role in developing my love of comics. Aside form the many super-hero reels I had as a wee lad in the early 70s, I also had a few view master reels featuring the G.I. Joe Adventure team (and several of the toys as well), based on the toyline produced from 1970-1976. These were the 12 inch figure line but their marketing moved away form the focus of soldiers due to the anti-Vietnam war sentiment and focused on adventurers. The story I remember most vividly form the view master reels were them repelling down a chasm and finding a golden statue of the Buddha.
Later in the toy line they added more characters, Mike Power, the Atomic Man (a Six Million Dollar Man clone), Bulletman and an alien opponent called the Intruders, and began including comics in the packaging. I am trying to find out info about these comics (GCD only lists the Ziff Davis series, a one shot promo put out in '67 based on the earliest toy line and then skips to the rebooted 80's version, and most of the details I got came form wikipedia supplementing my own memories).
Anyone know if any comic stories aside from the promo comics were made for these characters or know where I can find more info on the promo comics? How many there were, creative teams, etc. I am only interested in this particular iteration of G.I. Joe, not the 80's version as I never watched it when it came out and it holds no nostalgic grip on me.
Just another nostalgia fueled quest to recapture some childhood memories, so any help is appreciated. Thanks
