‘Making it Up’ with Larry Hama

On a new episode of Shelf Conscious, Keith welcomes legendary G.I. Joe creator, Larry Hama!

Larry recounts how he was the only person at Marvel willing to say yes to writing the G.I. Joe tie-in comics and the secret origins of those famed filecards. He also talks about the multimedia nature of Bucky O’Hare (before “multimedia” was a thing) and why G.I. Joe was always one 40-year-long retcon. Finally, they get into his feelings on the new movie, Snake Eyes, and why it’s okay that the ninja commando can be Asian American.

All this and more, only on Shelf Conscious, where we always come collect!
