First G.I. Joe comic. This issue's corner cover art is a picture of Grunt. It is the same art used, with few exceptions, for the first hundred issues. Issue also included numerous personnel profiles, HQ diagram, and vehicle profiles.
Synopsis: The Joes must rescue a peace activist from Cobra, who has hidden her on a remote island.
Notes: First appearance of Dr. Adele Burkhart. A computer read-out shows the faces and code names of all 13 original Joes, plus a 14th face obscured by a character's hand with the code-name "Shooter." This is a joke referring to the fact that Jim Shooter was editor-in-chief of Marvel at the time.
