Karate Joe the Crime Fighter was the third and final issue of the Karate Joe series. It took considerable effort to reproduce, because of the poor quality of the photocopy I had to work with. (I couldn't find the original.) It was photocopied back in the early 80's, and I think there was something wrong with the copier. In either case, Crime Fighter was the longest and most detailed of the series. It contained many strange and strained references. There was, as usual, a good number of inside jokes, and twisted characters.
