This is the first issue of Barbie Comics by Marvel Comics from 1990! This fabulous first issue is full of fashion fun and exciting escapades with modeling mix-up, poodle pandemonium, dancing dilemma, and much more!
The first issue of Barbie Comics came in a package with the first issue of Barbie Fashion Comics also from Marvel Comics, both published in January 1991. The package that sold for $1.99 (I got it on eBay for the same price!), introduced 2 fashion-filled Barbie Comics and came with a free gift of a colorful and striking Barbie doorknob hanger! This comic book has several fun and adventure-filled comics featuring Barbie and her friends with colorful illustrations. Some pages are dedicated to product and game advertisements from the 90’s. It also has a section titled Letters to Barbie in which letters from young readers were published expressing their thoughts about Barbie Comics and offering their suggestions. Here I share some of the illustrations.
