Issue Notes

Indicia apparently not present in this issue. Given that the indicia for the preceding and following issues (#27 and #29) both give the publication frequency as bi-monthly; and given that the preceding issue is dated November 1953, this issue's cover dates it for January, and the following issue is dated March 1954; it seems likely (though by no means certain) that the magazine was still intended to be published on a bi-monthly basis in January 1954.

The year segment of the issue date can be inferred by the dates and the publication frequencies given in the indicia for the previous and following issues, but does not appear in the magazine, which was copyrighted in 1953.

The editor cannot be verified via the issue's indicia. As Mr. Rogoff edited both the preceding and the following issues, it is likely (although not certain) that he edited this issue as well.

war
Characters:
Pvt. Joe Burch; Sgt. Mulvaney; Brigadier General Mike Parker; Lt. Parker
Synopsis:
Brig. Gen. Parker visits the Baker Company and his own son, Lt.Parker; Pvt. Cornelius Hoolihan [Weepy]

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe on both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the inking here must be by someone else, as it is not like his credited inking on Johnny Cloud in DC's "All-American Men of War". Those are much more thin penlines than these heavier brushlines.

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe on both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the inking here must be by someone else.

Mop-Up Operation (Table of Contents)

The Yardbirds / comic story / 5 pages (report information)

Dan DeCarlo
Inks:
Rudy Lapick; Dan DeCarlo ?

humor

Pvt. Windy Bragg; Pvt. Whitey Hicks; Sgt. Gruff; Colonel Stone

Indexer Notes

Dan DeCarlo is credited to both pencils and ink on The Yardbirds in Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but Rudy Lapick is also credited as his personal inker, and the inking is not to be distinguished from other signed DeCarlo/Lapick stories in G.I. Joe.

["Somewhere in Korea"] (Table of Contents)

Dear Gertrude / text story / 2 pages (report information)

Script:
?
Letters:
typeset

Genre:
war

Indexer Notes

Not an ordinary Letters page, but a continuing story told by means of letters from a G.I. to wife at home.

The Lieutenant's Girl (Table of Contents)

G.I. Joe / comic story / 7 pages (report information)

Letters:

Genre:
war
Characters:
Pvt. Joe Burch; Sgt. Mulvaney; Lt. Parker; Pvt. Greg Lawson
Synopsis:
Lt. Parker saves the life of Pvt. Lawson.

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to G.I. Joe on both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the inking here must be by someone else. It could be Giacoia on all three stories, but uncertain.
Notice Lt. Parker has black hair in this story, but red hair in the first one...
