1980's Barbie Comics - This Will Make You Happy!



I had NO idea Marvel did a Barbie Comic series. What's better is it..came...out...in...the...EIGHTIES! Yes!!! Its like a license for girly mayhem. These aren't even remotely the tackiest of the covers that were produced. If you click a cover you will be violently attacked with the cheesiest versions of every girls dreams. Remember when you thought life could be like that? In high school especially.. (PetSugar don't cry). What I want to know is how on earth could anything with basically Pamela Anderson animated recieve a Parents Award.

Something about the Flying Hero cover is seeming familiar, I don't know why since these would be before my time. Hmm. Anyway, they are so cute, 1000x cuter than any recent Barbie stuff

I totally used to own some of these comics as a kid. :) Loved them.

Thanks for the nostalgia!! :D

PetSugar said...

Jen - wow! was it deserving of a parents award? lol i'm so happy. if i had read these as a kid it would be awesome to see them again so many years later.

Jen said...

Haha, well I do remember owning an "educational" issue where Barbie tells all about the culture of Thailand... so I guess the parents award had some kind of justification. :P (Though, honestly, all I remember as a kid is going "oooh! pretty jewelry and saris!" *shrugs*)

PetSugar said...

Jen - hmm that's not too bad actually. i mean they probably chose that culture particularly because barbie can wear a lot of cool things but i'm kind of impressed! thanks!

Actually I´m not a great Barbie fan but when I was a child I like it and I can remember two different barbie magazines in Spain...the first one was a magazine published by Planeta de Agostini since 1997 and the second one a serie of comics very similar to the ones you have posted (or the same but in spanish as I recognize some of the covers)) in the 90´s...sadly I´m unable to find any image from this last ones un the web :-(
