G.I. Joe by Sunbow – What stuck with you?

Anyone who’s been following my posts and comments over the years knows that I’m a huge comic fan when it comes to G.I. Joe…  much moreso than the Sunbow cartoon.  I loved the more adult and realistic storylines told in the comic pages.  Larry Hama had a way that he wrote these characters that gave them all personality and made them all so unique, yet not silly or dumb.  The Sunbow cartoon did this stuff as well, but it seemed to go to such extremes sometimes (as with Bazooka or Spirit) that it almost made mockeries of the characters instead of making them real.
