a GI Joe comic book fan boy meets its maker...

the Larry Hama story...

 

Operation: Red Retrieval was designed to be the quintessential fan film for anybody who grew up in the 80s playing with action figures. The GI Joe homage impressed not only die hard fans - the creator of the GI Joe comic books and 80s Marvel Comics editor, Larry Hama, was also a fan. With over 500,000 Youtube views, the film brought Hama and Planet Nerd Rage together as team who would go on to co-write and co-produce Ghost Source Zero (see above!)
