"Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos" #1 (Jan. 1987) | art by Steve Ditko & Art Nichols Off of the relative success of his 1986 action-adventure flick The Delta Force (pretty good movie by the way) the Chuck Norris machine put together and produced the animated mini-series "Karate Kommandos." Released in the Fall of 1986 the mini-series was nothing more than a feature length commercial for a new line of Kenner action figures. In any case, the series was a success and a comic book spin-off was printed. Here is a look at the Steve Ditko & Art Nichols cover for the #1 issue. It pretty much says it all.
