The Viper is Not Coming

Sorry I didn't notice this thread sooner or I would have responded.
The comic if you mean that continues directly from 155 does begin picking exactly where it picked up from. but technically it picks up from really issue 151 as 152/153/154 were all self contained one shots that could have existed anywhere and then well 155 was where gi joe closes shop. the issue 155 and 1/2 from idw which was I believe a free comic day issue pretty much takes place right after or shortly after the baroness/billy/storm shadow all get brainwashed back in the brainwave scanner...although some stuff is not explained...as mindbender, destro, cobra commander, zartan, are all magically back in their 80s outfits which they had not been wearing for a long time even in the marvel run. I know Destro had not worn his original outfit for some time even when his new figure in the 90s similar to his original outfit was out. He still was drawn in his IG outfit but with a silver mask. I mean...that I suppose is no biggie as the series was prolly on a sliding time scale then so they coulda put new clothes on. Then the joes basically were like "okay were back to action" again but also wearing the original outfits. or resembling anyway. It was odd though as if you read the series back then that some were absent who were right there with Cobra Commander but not present at that time (which again the new issues presume it takes place soon after), like Slice and Dice, which I guess you have to assumed they ran away if you read that issue cuz I think they re-appeared later. Many of the Vipers were back to wearing officer uniforms. Some stuff re-appeared like Python Patrol vehicles, which was cool put I dont' remember being featured for a while even in the marvel run. Anyhow, I liked the fan service and art, but some issues I felt duped. I remember an Oktober Guard issue where they attacked the Joes whole issue then from what I recall at the very end they were like "we were just testing you". while that art was cool it just did nothing to further anything. I haven't kept up in the last year or so but the art is not terrible but you never really know if they will follow up next issue or when/ever on the story.
As far as the IDW new universe stuff...it has been rebooted a few times and some is good, really good, depends on taste, or just plain awful, IMO. There was one arc I forget the name where I remember it being good. i think it was Cobra Command/Cobra War something like that.
I do think some of the stuff is underrated and good. but like any comic is hit or miss like many said. I personally liked a lot of the silent castle ninja force run in the original series and I don't like transformers really but really liked those issues and how that was introduced into that time as well.

It is funny that IDW's #155 1/2 was supposed to pick up shortly after Marvel's #155, but we have had several stories that mention the present time (like the 2012 Comic Con and Dr. Burnhardt's 2012 tombstone) which is obviously years-and-years after the events of Marvel's #155. I think there was even a picture of Obama in the Pit beneath Ft. Wadsworth. Weird.

Yeah, this is a pretty common trope in comic books. If they didn't fudge the timeline, half of the Joes would be 70 years old.

It's fine, some bad and some good. I think it is closer in quality to the later marvel issues than the early stuff. I do give Hama credit since he has essentially written the entire run since 1982, so that is impressive, even with the long break in the late 90's-early 00's.
I admit I read it more out of a feeling of obligation since I have been reading since issue 11 rather than excitement. I even went from buying monthly to waiting for the digital trades since there is no comic book store near where I live.
