Who knew the end of the dinosaurs was brought upon by the awesome firepower of GIjOE?

I was going through stuff to take to Goodwill the other day (don’t worry, no Joes) and was skimming through some old Fox Trot books. I soon discovered a few strips with references to—and a cameo appearance by—our old friend, GIjOE; so I thought I’d share them here with you as part of our ongoing series of “GIjOE sightings” articles.

As fans of Fox Trot already know, the character most likely to be seen with anything GIjOE-related is usually Jason. Jason’s a little geekoid kid who’s always obsessing about the latest movies, computer games and toys, especially ones that he can use to somehow annoy his older sister, Paige.

He’s constantly bombarding the poor girl with kites, spitballs, flying Hot Wheels cars and even suction cup darts fired from his “GIjOE Dart Gun Helmet” or bazooka. Enjoy!

If it says “GIjOE” on it, it’s got to be good. Right, Jason? (Art: Bill Amend) Click to enlarge.

In this last strip, Jason combines his GIjOE Dart Helmet with a GIjOE Bazooka and guns for even MORE “anti-sister” firepower. HA (Art by: Bill Amend) Click to enlarge.
