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 NFL star quarterback Joe Namath, Star Trek IV, snow skiing, and a private eye. Interestingly, the pull out poster is an alternate version of the well known 1986 catalog art, this time featuring Sgt. Slaughter and the Triple-T.
