G.I.Joe & Modern Era Action Figure News
We couldn’t let the day pass by without wishing a heartfelt Happy Birthday to the man who helped shape many of our imaginations, that man being none other than Mr. Larry Hama! Larry’s career is chock full of accomplishments. Here’s a brief passage from his [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Hama]Wiki Page[/url] –
Larry Hama (born June 7, 1949) is an American comic book writer, artist, actor and musician who has worked in the fields of entertainment and publishing since the 1960s.
During the 1970s, he was seen in minor roles on the TV shows M*A*S*H and Saturday Night Live, and appeared on Broadway in two roles in the original 1976 production of Stephen Sondheim‘s Pacific Overtures.
He is best known to American comic book readers as a writer and editor for Marvel Comics, where he wrote the licensed comic book series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, based on the Hasbro toyline. He has also written for the series Wolverine, Nth Man: the Ultimate Ninja, and Elektra. He created the character Bucky O’Hare, which was developed into a comic book, a toy line and television cartoon. He currently writes for IDW Publishing, working on the continuing stories of G.I.Joe A Real American Hero.
On behalf of everyone here at CobraIsland.com, we wish you a very Happy Birthday, Mr. Hama! Yo Joe!
