Part of the immense popularity of G.I. Joe was due to an advertising blitz engineered by Don Levine of Hasbro. He wanted to create what he called "hall talk" between school boys. One of his strategies was to use a popular medium of the pre-adolescent boy -- comics.

In this case Hasbro licensed DC Comics to do 2 Showcase editions featuring G.I. Joe. This is the second comic, DC Comics Showcase #54 January 1965.

Excellent. I especially like the ads for the other things we had, the Matchbox and Aurora T-jets ads are the best, I still have some.
