The word came out a few days ago that Don Levine had passed away at the age of 86 from cancer. Along with a few other peers, Mr. Levine helped develop the very first G.I. Joe figure model in the 1960s and was not only one of the father’s of G.I. Joe, but one of the fathers of action figures as a whole. With G.I. Joe being the first “action figure” in toy history, Mr. Levine obviously has played a monumental role in the childhood of every single person reading this page.
Mr. Levine’s contributions to the pop culture landscape will forever be remembered, and my deepest condolences go out to his friends and family.
Family events took me away from my computer most of the day yesterday, so I didn’t get a chance to get a Darkness Falls update posted, but I’ve had some time this morning, so here is Episode 7!
As the G.I. Joe team moves closer to the Cobra Temple, the evil snakes make their first big move. Blood will be shed! Check it out in the Darkness Falls section, or the link below.
As many of us enjoy a three day weekend, spending time with family, please take a moment (or more) to remember the reason for the day. Remember those who have given their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have, and think about those they’ve left behind.
