Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Larry Hama Attending: Sat/Sun Writer/Artist/Editor: GI. Joe: A True American Hero; Wolverine G.I. JOE may loom large over Larry Hama's comicbook career but he is far more than just the writer who created the world in which Hasbro's action figure line thrives. Even in his early uncredited days he was writing, pencilling or inking, a three-pronged attack that continued post-1972 as Hama gained his first credits in Weird Worlds, Chilling Adventures in Sorcery and Crazy Magazine for DC, Archie Comics' Red Circle imprint and Marvel, respectively. After his first major gig – drawing Iron Fist in four 1974 issues of Marvel Premiere – he moved to the newly established but short-lived Atlas/Seaboard for which he created and wrote Planet of the Vampires as well as Wulf the Barbarian,which he also pencilled. In 1976 he joined DC as an editor, continuing in that role until 1980 when he found his way back to Marvel in a similar position. At the House of Ideas he also wrote or drew a miscellany of one-offs and produced the occasional cover until 1982, when he got together with penciller Herb Trimpe to launch G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The toy tie-in was a huge success and Hama – who had fleshed out the characters and the milieu in which they existed – stayed with the title until it ended in 1994 after 155 issues (virtually all of which he wrote). Having also scripted G.I. Joe comics for Devil's Due in 2002, he picked where he left in 2010 when IDW relaunched the comic continuing it from the original Marvel numbering. In between he also edited a variety of Marvel titles including The 'Nam and Savage Sword of Conan, created and wrote 1989's Nth Man: The Ultimate Ninja and authored such titles as Wolverine, Generation X and a variety of Venom miniseries. Subsequently Hama – who also co-created the anthropomorphic Bucky O'Hare (which debuted in the 1984 first issue of Continuity's Echo of Future Past –contributed titles to the Osprey Graphic History line and co-authored Spooks for Devil's Due, for which he also scripted Barack the Barbarian. He continues to write G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero for IDW.
