I'm doing the same thing. What I've read/heard about the IDW Joe doesn't interest me so I won't be buying that anymore. My friend at the LCS says Cobra is amazing (and I enjoyed the first arc), so I'll get the trades of that... eventually.
The only thing I buy monthly now is the Hama series 'cuz that's all I ever really wanted even before DD restarted in '01. (Though I abhor having multiple covers. Comic publishers: make a choice and show your books and readers some respect instead of trying to make a buck!)
Man, I don't even buy figures anymore unless they're O-ring/vintage. I'm just trying to keep my hobby focussed on the stuff I *really* want instead of buying whatever's thrown at me simply because it claims to be G.I. Joe (Not to mention giving my wallet and storage space a bit of relief too).
ARAH. O-rings. Hama. 'Nuff said!
