    Hey all, long time no see.

    I've got a question and I figured I'd consult you experts on G.I. Joe here at the boards before I went off and spent a lot of money. I've gotten back into collecting with the fantastic 25th Anniversary figures, and I'm thinking that I'd like to read the old Marvel comics. I know Devil's Due reprinted some of them as trade paperbacks, but I don't know if they did the whole run. (How long was it? Something like 150 issues?) So what I'm wondering is,

    What's the best way to read all the Marvel G.I. Joe comics?

    I'd prefer to have TPBs if it's an option. And if anyone has all the Marvel TPBs and wants to sell them, (PM me and) name your price!

    Thanks,
    Beemer

    There were 155 issues in the main, ongoing title. The first 50 issues were reprinted in 5 TPBs and that's as far as they went. The back 15 or so issues of the run tend to steadily increase in price leading up to #155. Your best bet, beyond getting those TPBs to knock out the first 50, is to look for lots on Ebay, IMO. That's how I rebuilt most of my collection.

    I am so hoping that they do all of this series in Trade form now that Joe is skyrocking and the movie is coming.
