devil's due was the best IMO. it wasn't product-driven and had a great story and drama. my only qualm with DD was the last 12 or so issues where the art went to hell. i know some people liked it, but i didn't. the ending sort of fizzled as well and that was a disappointment. the marvel run was interesting, but didn't seem to have the same drama or overall effect as DD. also marvel was *very* product-driven, and seeing as how i could care less about toys it made no difference to me. i like the comics and love gi joe, but i still don't understand adults collecting toys. no judgment from me though... to each their own.

I'm voting Marvel, but that's more because of nostalgia and because I have more experience with the Marvel run that DDP and not because of any objective reasons.

The Dark Horse GI Joe Extreme series put them all to shame.
Marvel, no doubt.

I'd almost say there were 3 series:
Only adding AE because it was so different in tone/feel from DDP's series that it seemed a completely seperate entity.
Marvel wins all the way. Doesn't matter that it was longer, or product driven, it was more G.I. Joe in terms of stories.

There were a lot of things I liked better about the Devils Due run, particularly the more adult themes and lack of kiddie/cartoonlike moments that Marvel often had, especially early on. However, I would still have to say that the original marvel run is more iconic and enjoyable overall. At times it was too dependent on the toys, but it was there to support a toy line, so what can one really expect. Those are the characters I grew up with and remember. Marvel also had some very memorable well executed storylines and they clearly knew where they were headed with them. DD came up with great story concepts but would then drag them out for way too long and it just seemed as though they could never execute their ideas very well. They also lose points for killing Lady Jaye. Also, i could do with out another Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow issue for the rest of my life, keep that in mind IDW.

Marvel 1-100 all the way.. after issue 100 Marvel took a nose dive. I never fully got into the DDP series I bought maybe 20 comics total of all their series just picked them up when I saw one on the shelf. I liked them but I wasn't compelled to get all the back issues.
Though I am getting a few more of them these days. I intend on collecting the new series however from issue 0-whatever.

look at it this way...
if the Marvel series hadn't have happened, and the ddp stuff had've come out, and you as the reader had no prior knowledge of the history of the characters, or the stories, well, it would have been readable, but not great.
The Ddp stuff was great because of the marvel run.
sure it's hit or miss, I mean, i'm a huge Dreadnoks fan, and i've read Dreadnoks declassified 5 or 6 times and it's just a convoluted mess. So where it's good, it's really good, and where it's bad...it's really bad.
Now that's not to say that the marvel run wasn't without it's shortcomings...but for a series as old as it is, it still really holds up.
So i'll have to go with the Marvel Run.
