In 1984, Marvel New York published this three-issue mini-series based on the hit Universal/ NBC TV series.
The Fantastic Five (or, as the TV writers liked to think of it: The Fantastic Four with Amy) helped those in need, got involved in bonkers plots and defied death every adventures. Ideal comic book fodder. So no surprise that Marvel USA rushed this three-issue mini-series onto the stands in an attempt to grab some sales before America's obsession with the Team past.
Marvel UK reprinted all three issues across two specials (1985-86) and, again, in the only UK A-TEAM annual published by Marvel (the previous efforts were of the stellar quality normally associated with anything cobbled together by notorious purveyors of TV tie-in tat: World Distributors).
As with the previous Universal series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, permission for Marvel to reprint material from the states didn't stop their rivals (this time TV COMIC and, later, LOOK IN) from producing their own A-TEAM strips. Pity the fools!
