For a while, Atari was including mini-comics with games. Some comics had to do with the specific series, but most were “Atari Force” (1982), a team of multicultural future people who are REALLY into Atari. I can’t help but to love this. I also wonder if they included the Indian with the enlarged red bindi on his forehead because it’s similar to the red button on Atari joysticks. It was the early 80’s, so I’m going to assume yes. Martin Champion, the leader of the group, won three gold metals in the 1996 Olympics. Yeah, not as far into the future as you thought, is it?
This team was redesigned completely for volume 2, when DC turned it into a legitimate comic rack comic.
