Action Force Winter Special – Dated October 1987

“Hi there! My
name’s Buzzer…”

This post isn’t exactly
in the correct chronological order, coming several weeks after Action Force
weekly was cancelled. However I have only just procured myself a copy and
wanted to post it before Action Force Monthly launches (coming this way very
soon).

Technically this issue
is the Action Force Special issue 2 and reprints issue 35 of the US GI Joe
comic. It’s a pretty straightforward story of the Dreadnoks going on a rampage
and encountered an off-duty Action Force squad resulting in a high speed
chase.

The most notable thing
is the way in which Zartan’s holographic chameleon technology is pushed to
beyond breaking point. At one point he disguises a helicopter as a bus, drives
around instead of flying and stops to pick up a passenger. I don’t know why he
did any of those things as they make no sense.

Otherwise it’s a fun little story. But now we
must leave the world of weekly Action Force behind (reprints in Transformers
excepted) and bend our minds towards… Action Force Monthly!
