I've spoken often about the influences Gold Eagle's Able Team and Phoenix Force books had on me as an impressionable youth. Sadly, many of those books I read in junior high were borrowed from other sources and I only owned a meager handful of Gold Eagle titles myself.
For a few years, I was able to purchase a title here or there from used bookstores in the Boston area, but the pickings were fairly slim. In the last few weeks, however, with the idea of releasing HATCHET FORCE JOURNAL and the return to my roots that project provides, I've been making an effort to expand my collection of Gold Eagle titles.
Over the last two weeks, I've received Able Team #'s 2, 3, 7, and 8, and Phoenix Force #1. I hope to get a review of PF #1 up here soon. I've got Able Team #'s 1, 4, 5, and 6 and Phoenix Force #'s 2, 3, 6, and 8 on their way. It's going to be my goal to get at least one Gold Eagle title reviewed and posted every week, and I hope to have a review of AT #1 in the first issue of HFJ.
Oh, and if you're wondering, the knife is a CRKT First Strike. That is one badass piece of cutlery, just sayin'.
