They need to get someone good on Joe. I doubt Hama would do it, but maybe Dixon. Go through the existing continuity, look at all the dropped threads, continuity farts, etc, and go at it like Roberts or Barber do with Transformers story problems.

Does anyone remember Destro will disintegrate if he takes off his suit? That Zartan is a clone of sorts? That Mindbender discovered fucking time travel?

And what happened to Krake, and why is Snake Eyes a good guy again?

This could, and should, be a great title.

I nominate the Costa guy that was writing the Cobra series. Bi-weekly flip book with GI Joe on one part & Cobra on the other so you can display the cover you prefer.

The newest GIJoe series is already coming to an end.

IDW is doing another Hasbro crossover event called First Strike, but in order to do so, they're "cancelling" most of their current ongoing series(referring to them as "seasons") and relaunching new books after the Event.

So GiJoe gets replaced with GIJoe:Unmasked (What does that even mean?)
ROM AND Micronauts are getting combined into one title, because....reasons?
And there's a third "Classified" book.

Not sure if the two Transformer books are affected.

Sales must be pretty shitty, if they're pulling Marvel shit over at IDW. But it's hard to get traction and momentum on a series if you keep restarting it every eight issues.

They're going to unmask the first decent Joe story since Costa left?

I'm wondering if it's really an unclever pun, maybe spelled G.I. Joe: UnM.A.S.K.ed.

I wish they'd look at what made TF successful and just apply the "let good creators run wild with long-brewing stories" formula to the others.

A new series (#1 hadn't even been released yet) has been cancelled because the writer hates 9/11 or something.

I saw that. The guy is a dick, and his 9/11 post was tasteless, but it was a final straw. He'd been an ass, joining online Joe groups just to antagonize people, and apparently reconned Gung Ho to be gay just because he knew it would piss fans off.

His story ideas were solid, but the execution, not so much.

In honor of ARAH’s 250th issue, IDW is releasing a special of ARAH’s First Issue. So essentially they’re selling a reprint of the original Marvel issue for $3.99.

An issue they’ve already released more than once, usually for a buck.

I'm sure it will be 3.5x better than those versions.

They did a hardcover reprint of #21. Just the original issue, maybe a page about it

If it was a hardcover anniversary issue, it should've included the silent story leading into it (otherwise exclusive to Devil's Due's Snake Eyes Declassified paperback), the "alternate" version from the 25th Anniversary Snake Eyes vs Storm Shadow 2-pack, interviews with everyone, and maybe toss in the other silent issue (85?) as a bonus.
