They should really give a nod to a real american hero by writing into the new stories that the origin of GI Joe started in America and is born out of and true to values of the original group. They can include all kinds of flashbacks and references to that group and organization as the guiding light for any future GI Joe groups.

"My favorite character is Rock n Roll, he shoots a machine gun."
"Our Joes only use lasers."
"They are adding foreign members to the team, like the Decepticon Skywarp."

Laser guns, 4 armed robot ninjas, and cheesy dialogue? I'm in!
Not really. Instant pass. I know some folks like it, but it's a step in the wrong direction for me.
I hope it does well, so that maybe we can get some good toys out of it.

Just because it's not Larry Hama, doesn't mean it can't be entertaining. It's meant to be a fun read, not serious business. Let other people define some aspects of GI Joe for once. ARAH doesn't have to dominate everything. This book is setting out to be different.
I read it, expected sci-fi elements and thought it was neat. I don't even like crossover books.

The cartoon and toys are also what first got me into JOES, so I'll give the comic a shot.

So far all I read was we are getting GIJoe Extreme 2.0
So we will probably hate everyone except the bad guy and the ninja....
Also LOTS of SJW SH%T. No guns? are you kidding me?
Why is Skywarp a Joe, isnt he a villain?
Also why does someone have to tell SE what to do? hes a freaking ninja master...
It seems all my favorite things are getting ruined by (CURRENT YEAR)
Seriously looking for operation Bear Trap Con Set!!!

Its a much bigger universe and GIJOE has to adapt.
The 'cons and 'bots realize that and their war is on hold at the moment. They are now just acting as Cybertronians against the new threat. The Joes need a Cybertronian on their side.
This is the IDW Joe universe not the Hamaverse, most of these characters are dressed and act like they would in that setting.
Sitterson is a good writer, he wrote the Street Fighter X Joe books, and used to write plots for the WWE. I am not a fan of the WWE but they do have a great writing staff. All that talk in the EW article is mostly BS for their readership as far as I can see.
Read Rom and you get the larger picture as to what is going on.
Rock N Roll is paying for his actions in this issue.
Beach Head has gone rogue with Grunt.
There has been no politics in any of the stories. Just like there was nothing out of the ordinary for Rogue One, despite all those people on twitter using the #banstarwars hashtag.
What I have seen is the Joes thrust into a new battle and they are handling it better than most would handle it.
I like the book and I am not going to let some offhand comments in a PR piece influence how I feel about the issue.
In fact for me it is probably the best book that IDW has put out since they took over the license (other than ARAH and Danger Girl)
It has the best balance of old and new.
Both Sitterson and Giannis are very active on Twitter and you can see they are not just treating this like another job. They are excited to be on the book.
Take a load off and watch some GIJOE videos.
That's the way the Pogo Ballistic Battle Ball bounces.

I picked this up and have no clue what's going on. I know it came out of the big Hasbro crossover event, though I don't get why they even felt the need to do that (besides money). That said, I believe they're still putting out Hama's ARAH series, so there's something for everyone.
I'll admit to being put off a bit by interviews similar to this one. So this might be on a bit of a short leash if it gets too kooky.

I've pruned a few posts. Let's keep the political talk and insults off the thread. Thanks.
