It's hard to say for me.
Marvel had some missteps IMO (like making everyone and their cousins part of the Arashikage clan and the whole CC hates SE, because CC's brother was drunk driving and killed SE's family)
Devil's Due was really good but I dropped out around issue 28 (Lack of funds at the time) I never really got into the later series like America's Elite and such (The artwork never drew me in)
I haven't read IDW's stuff so I can't say anything about them

I would like to say Marvel for now, but IDW is having a helluvah good start, at this rate I might change my answer in another year or so.
The COBRA mini series has been the best damn comic I've ever read. and the GI Joe comic & Origins are damn good too.

It's hard to say for me. Each publisher has had it's moments of awesomeness, and it is a bit early to tell for IDW.

Marvel had some dumb moments, like when the Joes were defeated in an earlier issue (# 29 to be exact) and drove the Whale in to dock. Several young local boys were taunting them (for being defeated in armed combat) and even attempted to prevent Roadblock from lifting a metal panel by sitting on it. The boys say (direct quote) "The little sojer boys done bwoke their wubber waft". The Joes just turn the other cheek and ignore the jerk children.
-For reference, Roadblock is a giant Ving Rhames look-alike with an even bigger machine gun. I'm pretty sure he would frighten me in real life.
For some reason, that scene always really bugged me, and made it hard for me to accept Larry Hama as a good writer.

Way way way way way way way way way way way way way way (you get the point) too early to tell. IDW has only 12 issues out there, 8 origins and 5 Cobra. That's not enough of a body of work to even think about comparing them to Marvel and DDP's entire runs.
So to ask which of the 3 is the best run, it's too premature. There's no way to tell because we haven't seen all of IDW's "run" yet.
Between Marvel and DDP
Marvel, no doubt about it. Even with all the misteps (which were really the fault of Hasbro and not Hama's writing and plots, if you're forced to use Ninja Force, you make the best out of it you can; but yeah, the interconnection was HORRIBLE), Marvel is still a helluva lot better then DDP.
I read all of DDP.
Garbage. It wasn't Joe. It was bad. Horrible.
But so far, nothing tops Marvels Special Missions as the best Joe comics.
IDW is off to a good start and I'm eager to see where it goes but it's way to early to start comparing the three.

Give DDP credit for what it was: the continuing adventures of GI Joe. Without those issues, you wouldn't have Mayday, Kamakura, the origens of many Joes and Cobras, Wraith, Zanya, Heartbreaker, and many other characters that many of us have in our collections today.

I could have done without Kamakura and Wraith and definately without Zanya or Heartbreaker.
Only things DDP was good for was Barrell Roll and Mayday.
