I agree with the comment that if the art is horrible the best writting can't help it. The Tripwire/CC art was so bad to me I honestly felt I was reading an Archie comic strip.
I still believe in Mr. Hama ability to write, he just needs a good artist to convey his vision/voice/writing.

I'll let you know my opinion of Hama's current writing abilities when I get to around issue four of the IDW series.

I felt the same way the first round of inbetween/half issue comic packs. However, I've really enjoyed the single story arches that have come out in the latest wave. Firefly vs Storm Shadow was great! I thought what he did with Falcon and Nemisis was enjoyable especially considering how much he hates the idea of Cobra-La.

We're gonna find out. I think there's a lot of pressure being put on him by both the fans(us) and Hasbro/IDW. I'm looking forward to his new run, but will approach it carefully. The CP stories have been awful, but I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

I enjoyed the original Joe run and too me Hamma is the father of gi joe. I look forward to the new series and I have faith in him. I also agree that the comic pack stories have been hit and miss but remember these packs are aimed at kids so that could explain the campy stories.

Hama still has it, Hasbro gives him his plot, and he has to flesh it out, and knowing Hasbro they are rushing him so you need to shift the blame a little to us, the collector, because we wanted new stories, we want figures quicker, so we are like crackheads looking for our fix and Big Hasbro is our dealer, So if anyone is to blame for the rush.......it's US! (LOL)!

I think its mainly because he is limited to what he can do with these stories.I mean they are one shots focused mainly towards kids .I think his normal comic series will be much better. Although for the record my 10 year old is loving the comic pack comics. He has read them all and wants more.

I think he is writing under some stricter guidelines for the Comic Pack issues, and it's somewhat unfair to consider this his "true work" these days. I'll admit, my opinion has been mixed over the past few years. There's been some excellent stuff (G.I. Joe DeClassified), some terrible stuff (His first Frontline arc) and some mediocre stuff (a lot of his Storm Shadow work). I think he's still got it, and I think the IDW series will showcase his abilities a LOT more than the toy tie-in, heavily regulated Comic Pack issues will or do.
