G.I.Joe Magazine first appeared in the winter of 1985. It would not appear again until two years later. The Winter 1987 issue kicked off a two-year quarterly run serving up eight more issues through 1987 and 1988.
Each issue featured "stories about sports, the outdoors, action movies and entertainment and real-life excitement." Each issue also featured "an action-packed tale of G.I.Joes in the field, a colorful poster and games and quizzes to play."
This issue featured articles on the stunts of the latest James Bond film, major league baseball, waterskiing, African safaris, and the movie Ernest Goes to Camp. The cover featured beautiful art painted by Dave Dorman. This art was also made available in a 1987 puzzle by Milton Bradley. The poster is a variation of the 1987 catalog cover.
