As far as fitting in between the original Marvel run and the DDP run, there will inevitably be problems. DDP's GI Joe: Frontline had the final mission of the Joes in its first few issues which was suppose to serve as an ending for the original Marvel series, and also explaining how Cobra was thrown into chaos and failed to mount any attacks in the ensuing years. Clearly, that won't be the case in the new run.
I would be very interested in what Larry feels about the Red Shadows as I can't remember them ever appearing in a comic he wrote (only Action Force and DDP, plus some fan work).
This has a lot of potential. IDW already has 2 continuities running parallel so a 3rd wouldn't be a huge deal (their restart plus the movie/SE stories).

This is fantastic! Might be nice to tie in with ddp, but as far as I'm concerned Hama is the man and if he changes things up then thats how it is, and it would take precedence over ddp. Awesome news!

Didn't realize that IDW had the rights to publish the DDP stories.
I still think DDP will be ignored.

I not only think DDP will be ignored, I hope and pray DDP is ignored. They wasted everyone's time with crappy art and even worse writing. And they fell into the old comic cliche' of: if you can't figure out how to make people feel for your characters, kill a couple important ones. The skill in writing is to make minor deaths feel like major deaths, not make major deaths seem like throwaways. I told Josh Blaylock this at a Con once and he stared at me like I was speaking in parables.
Looking for a couple of the Shipwreck figures from the 5-Packs. As well as both antennas for the Mauler.

All I've got to say is that Larry Hama's writing of G.I. Joe is the best. I'm not going to hate on other writers right now, because I know everybody's got their own opinions. There have been good writers and bad writers, but Larry is still the best!
