    The big 5 are:

    Conan - 275
    GI Joe - 155
    Star Wars - 107 issues between a few Annuals and the Return of the Jedi mini series (not counting the new Star Wars books)
    Micronauts - 81 issues between two series and Annuals
    Rom - 78 issues and Annuals

    Would the 86-issue run of Terry-Toons Comics count as well, because it featured cartoon characters like Mighty Mouse, Heckle, and Jeckle.

    Mighty mouse counts. Marvel did a 80s comic of him also.

    Master of kung fu had 101 issues! Yes marvel owns Shang Chi but the book was a based on fu Manchu who marvel no longer has the rights to! (but did get the ok to get the book reprinted)


    Alf had 50 issues and one shots
    Barbie had 51 issues and a second comic
    Heathcliff had 56 issues and a spin off book


    Plus the uk transformers comic went for over 100 issues!

    Love the "issue 80 in a four issue limited series" at the top of the last issue.

    They had a few spin-offs also.

    Just to be precise, Death's Head #8 (which was later reprinted in Incomplete Death's Head #9):

    "The Fire, the Friend, and the Foe!"
    Duped by the alien Dire Wraiths, a misguided human has
    been grafted to the armor of the fallen Spaceknight Firefall.

    with the fury of Galador's most powerful energy source. While, Steve Jackson desperately pursues

    those who've kidnapped Brandy Clark, the woman he loves.
