I had some time to talk to Brandon Jerwa recently, who wrote a large chunk of the Devils' Due issues, and he has some great insight on past and current Joe comics. Anyone who's interested is welcome to check it out:

Now that's one cat I want to see succeed!
Thanks GH for taking the time to talk to Brandon. His run on DD's G.I.Joe was my favorite part of their run. It felt like Joe to me. When he was writing was the only time I would start reading in line and finish in the parking lot.
Brandon was always cool with the fans. He was one of us and didn't separate himself from us. He always answered questions no matter how inane they were.
Brandon is a great writer, knows G.I.Joe, and will always be welcome, by this fan, on any G.I.Joe project. I hope IDW utilizes him in some way eventually.
If I had a spare Wraith, I wouldn't hesitate to send it to him.
Good job, General Hawk!
Looking for at reasonable prices:

I couldn't agree more on all counts.
Glad you enjoyed the interview!

awesome article, thanks for linking that. I definitely enjoyed his run as well (although i wasn't exactly sure when it was, I usually don't keep up on the different writers/artists/etc well), but #25 and on was some of the best from DDP.
I will say I'm interested in seeing what's in the movie that was his idea too...

I met Brandon at the Emerald City Comicon in '07 or '06 (I can never remember), and I gotta say, the guy was cool as heck. Really a nice dude. Thanks for posting the interview!
