Group Description

Atari Force was the name of two comic book series published by DC Comics from 1982 to 1986. Both were loosely based on trademarks of Atari, Inc.

In 1982 writers Gerry Conway and Roy Thomas published the first Atari Force comics, which were created mainly to illustrate story lines for home console games being released by fellow Warner Communications subsidiary Atari, Inc. The comics were packed in with the games Defender, Berzerk, Star Raiders, Phoenix, and Galaxian. Artists included Ross Andru, Gil Kane, Dick Giordano, and Mike DeCarlo. The team name and Commander Martin Champion are also featured in the Liberator arcade game.

The second series was released monthly, in conventional comic-book format. Gerry Conway returned as writer while José Luis García-López became the main pencil artist. However, original series concept artist Ross Andru did draw issues 4-5. In issue #13, Eduardo Barreto took over as penciler and, in #14, Mike Baron became the regular writer through the final issue, #20. Issues 12-20 also featured backup stories by different writers and artists. In 1986, a "Special" issue was released with work by different creators, some of whom had done backup stories for volume 2.
