One thought on “Solicitations for IDW G.I. Joe titles for July, 2015

  1. So, “IDW does have some plans going forward?” I take that to mean that “season 4” of IDW’s GI Joe is officially a bust, and that whatever plans they have will involve another soft reboot and another new creative team? I wish I could say I was surprised. Really, I loved Karen Traviss’ Star Wars novels, and thought she’s be a great fit if she was allowed to bring the same strong characterization, personality, quirkiness and comradery to the Joes that she brought to the Clone Commandos. Making characters who were literally clones of each other into well defined individuals.

    Instead we got more of what we were getting all along, with the Joes portrayed as little more then generic soldiers, unable to show any emotion but anger and angst. And most of Cobra, beyond generic troops, being nowhere to be seen, while the Baroness is the only named Cobra character to actually do anything. Anyone remember when GI Joe had an ensemble cast? And worst, they gave us the same storyline as season 2, with the GI Joe team being threatened with being shut down by their own government because Cobra is running a PR war against them.

    The whole business with Snake-Eyes was just as bad, I don’t care how much people want to gush about Mike Costa. He’s a great writer, but he was doing the same storyline with Snake-Eyes that we saw back in season 2. “Has he really become a bad guy?” Not if Hasbro has anything to say about it. You know, the folks who insist Storm Shadow be a bad guy? What a waste of two great writers. They could have done so much better. Sorry for the rant Justin.
