Indexer Notes

The S.H.A.R.C. [Submersible High-speed Attack and Reconnaissance Craft] is drawn like the cartoon counterpart's first appearance in the first tv miniseries (1983- M.A.S.S. device) for this issue in its first appearance. Of other note: when this issue was transcribed into an animated commercial ad for tv, the correct toy model was used instead which would be featured in later Joe issues as well as in the toy commercial for both the SHARC and Cobra Water Moccasin vehicle.
