My only regret about the following article is that Monte didn’t write it for me. :D
In all seriousness, ever since G.I. Joe: Renegades appeared comparisons have been rampant (unfair as they might be) between Resolute and Renegades. Which was better? Really thinking about it, the comparisons are ridiculous, considering they were both designed for completely different purposes and entirely separate audiences…how can an episodic animated series written for 7 – 10 year olds be realistically compared to a high-octane 60 minute superficial feature designed to resonate with the violent tendencies of 30-something year old fanboys? Seems like a ludicrous comparison to make, but many folks made it, just the same.
Think about it for a minute…would you expect the syndicated Robocop cartoon to match the visceral brutality of the R-rated film? Of course not. It’s for kids. I think the same can be said of Renegades.
Still, the comparisons are out there, and they will be made endlessly, so I might as well put some focus on one of the better thought out ones I’ve read. Monte Williams, big friend of GeneralsJoes has decided to have his say, and it’s a fantastic one. Eloquent as always, well research and well written, you can check it out on Autobotic Asphyxiation.
It certainly doesn’t hurt that I agree with him. Another nice one, Monte, thanks for sharing.
