‘G.I. Joe': The Forgotten ’80s Filecards From Dennis Culver & Moviefone [Art]

G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits theaters this weekend, and the early word on the sequel (that’s more like a reboot) is good news for die-hard Joe fans. The film proudly wears its influences on its sleeve and actually feels like a real-life recreation of the comic books and filecards written with pain-staking dedication by Larry Hama. If you’re a child of the 1980s, you’re finally getting the Joe movie you always imagined with your Hasbro 3 & 3/4 inchers.

With ’80s nostalgia on the brain, ComicsAlliance’s sister site Moviefone has recruited Edison Rex artist Dennis Culver to imagine a collection of forgotten Joes — featuring Saturday morning cartoons, beloved movie characters and rock ‘n’ rollers donning the Joe fatigues — all in the spirit of those bombastic days when Sgt. Slaughter and William “The Refrigerator” Perry could call themselves “Real American Heroes.”

Check out a few of Culver’s filecards after the jump, and get lost daydreaming about your most epic toy battle ever.

Codename: A.L.F.A. (Alien Life Form Assassin)

Codename: CHUNK & SLOTH (Truffle Shuffler & Freebooter)

Codename: SCARE BEAR (Cobra Morale Officer)

Head over to Moviefone to see the full gallery of ’80s icons locked in the fight for freedom.
