G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #21 (1984)

This is no ordinary comic, True Believers! We're talkin' 'bout G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #21! This issue is a classic, a must-have for any comic collector or fan of G.I. Joe! Plus, it features the first appearance of none other than Storm Shadow, one of the most iconic characters in the Joes' history!

And get this, folks - this issue is ranked at #44 on Wizard Magazine's list of "100 Best Single Issue Comics Since You Were Born"! That's no small feat, folks! But what really makes this issue special is that it was made a Silent issue due to some crazy circumstances. You see, the original issue #21 was lost before it went to print, and Larry Hama, the creator, only had 3 weeks to get a comic finished. So, to save time, he decided to make it a silent issue. This not only helped to save time, but it also made for an incredibly unique reading experience!

Now, here's a little insider info for you collectors out there - in the final 2 panels of the issue, where Storm Shadow's arm and Snake-Eyes's shirts are torn, there was actually nothing beneath them. But Larry Hama thought it was weird that he'd drawn both of their shirts torn in the same way, so he decided to give them both the same red tattoo. And that's how the Arashikage Clan and Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes's brotherhood was born!
