The thing that annoys me the most is that Hasbro cancelled the Storm Shadow series, forced a rewrite of World War III and blocked The Coffin Special, because of this the continuity gone off on a whimper rather than a big bang (Baring in mind I haven't read Issues 35 & 36 yet, hopefully getting them delivered tomorrow and trying to avoid spoilers!)jamarmiller wrote:ya I know what you mean, I was thinking of something too but felt the same way.
the only thing with the whole we lost the roadblock rights is ( which is true )....... hes been showing up in the DDP comics now for 7 years as a MAIN character! so they could use him in the comics if they wanted too but the fact is HASBRO doesnt want them too as they dont have the rights anymore.
but ya just depressed, There was soooo much that could still be told from the old continuity which wont be now.
I wont buy the books , bottom line ( unless the book features the ARGEN 7 and action force fighting the RED SHADOWS and the other south american cobras and Joes ( NEVER going to happen) ,
really the only way the old continuity would be brought back is if sales tanked so hard they had to reconsider it.
nothing I can do about it sadly other than Not buy the book.
Again IDW is a good company, they produce good quality books and ryall is cool to interact with the fans like he does.
Its just obvious there not doing the book anymore for this 20 some years long reader.
To me the Joe world was getting REALLY interesting now its just plain boring by starting at the beginning.
oh well now GI JOE EXTREME can happen without anything contradicting it, if anything GI JOE EXTREME REALLY REALLY fits well with that continuity ! and I LOVE GI JOE EXTREME
I'm with you on the excitement around the IDW announcement, but they have got it bang on, a re-boot without Hama would have died on it's feet within a year, it'll probably be quite good and that's the most frustrating thing!!
