This is the old "movie will suck/won't suck" again really isn't it? Until we sample the comic we won't know. I do have reservations based on me not liking some of Hama's recent work (I did enjoy his FRONTLINE story though!) and IDW's treatment of other properties I like, but I'm still looking forward to seeing what he does with the comic and it's 'clean slate'.
I will say that even though I didn't like Hama's STORM SHADOW or GI JOE DECLASSIFIED, I won't insist they were "bad". SS didn't feel like it belonged (even remotely) in the Joe universe while GI JOE Declassified felt too dated for me (I know it was supposed to, technically, but...). But they were hardly 'badly written', and I won't dismiss his new take on the series based on these very speifically tailored titles.

So how many continuities of gi joe you think there are so far?
i hope the original continuity is done for now and it's best for all characters of gijoe an cobra to retired and a reboot would be ok with me as long as we get to see the same characters.
i just examing the gijoe/transformers series and other gijoe story book to make it look like another continuity. reloaded series has it's own continuity, action force, joe vs cobra and a new joe continuity of gijoe movie next year.
unless a back story of the main continuity of joe story would be great for other characters and vehicles that never appeared in comics before and others appeared once and small cameos.

I enjoyed most of the DDP series, wish they still had it, but if anything it gives another take on G I joe, which will end around issue 30 or 40 and then we get another reboot...YAY!
Seriosuly, I love continuity in Joe, and would hate if they forgotten everything ddp did.
Unfortunetly by the end of series, there just isn't enough sales to keep the series going, which is why they relaunched it 3 times, and will probably reboot for idw.
I am at this moment torn on what would be a good decision to do.
I just hope Hama isn't out of ideas and resort to picking and pulling at lame concepts.

i would like to point that there is getting to be a point in the old continuity that most people don't think about. After a 26 year time line starting with the main characters being in their mid to late 20's and others being older than that pretty soon the entire team would have to retire anyway or would be in ranking positions where they were no where near the battle.
If you want to keep the same characters you are going to have to reboot and start them with a more updated back stories. i am not saying to change them completely but modernize them.
and i personally thought that the SS series started with potental but seemed to have played out to quickly with to much skipping around and not enough back story.

Looking forward to this series. I'm a loyal follower of IDW's TF series, and know they won't disappoint me here.
