Yeah, to win a No-Prize, you had to explain why something that looked like a mistake, really wasn't a mistake.
For example if a character was remembering an event to another character and he said another character was there that wasn't there. That seems like a mistake. Well, you explain that it is not a mistake, because that's how that character remembers it, or in fact, that character was there. Just off-panel.
Then you say, "Do I get my No-Prize"?
And Hama says, "It's in the mail!"
Then you wait by the mailbox for weeks waiting on your No-Prize only to be disappointed when all you get is an empty envelope. An empty envelope?! After all the money you've spent on G.I.Joe, Nth Man, and Wolverine comics supporting your idol, Larry Hama, all he sends you is an F'ing envelope?!
Then you go down to your local McDonald's and shoot everybody inside with an AK-47 you bought on the black market.
Now you're in prison and it's all Larry Hama's fault.
I gotta go. The guards are telling me internet time is over.
Looking for at reasonable prices:

G.I. Joe is the codename for America's daring, highly trained special mission force. Its purpose: to defend human freedom against COBRA-a ruthless terrorist organization dertermined to rule the world.

Although I knew how you were supposed to win one, I always remember wondering what a "No-Prize" was as a kid. Thanks for clearing up one of life's little mysteries for me.

That's funny that someone brought this up. I was just thinking about it the other day! I never did win a "no-prize", but I remember finding a few things that I could've written in about if I'd just not been lazy.

I actually asked Larry Hama a few years back and that's what he said too. It's just an empty envelope. I remember once though that someone did get something special once, but can't remember what it was. I think it was a signed G.I.Joe comic. I think it was the person who pointed out something significant. Might have had to do with the revelation that Firefly was the Faceless Master, but I can't really remember right now.
