      Yep. Exactly. Lots of Joes die, but almost all of them are unnamed.

      And the contest participants who weren't classic Cobra characters also died as well. Except for the winner.

      I like at as much as the first volume. If not more.

      The competition within Cobra to determine the new Commander was pretty interesting.

        IIRC, they had a contest to see who could kill the most Joes?

      Well, I've now read the first portion IDW's second G.I. Joe volume, Cobra Civil War.

      I hope it comes out in January. I've been really looking forward to it.

      And what's the deal with Revolutionaries? It was supposed to come out this month and yet we haven't even had a preview yet.

        I think they set its release date too soon, giving Ossio no break between Revolution and Revolutionaries.

      I just feel like doing it. For story flow.

      I've decided I'm going to hold off on reading the new G.I. Joe series till I'm done catching up on the previous comics.
      1. Sockie
        Sockie
        Okay, although I think it'll just fine to read it without being caught up on all of IDW Joe.

      Religious brain washing via drugs, strange hallucinations heavily featuring snakes, Croc Master's origin story, brutal recruit or training methods done by Skullbuster, and it ends with the arcs "hero" joining The Coil and being its Human sacrifice. With Serpentor(The Coil's leader) chanting "Cobra-La-La-La-La!!!".

        Sounds like a very happy time.

      Especially the arc that introduces The Coil... 'Shivers'

        What happens in that one?

      Well, I've now finished the first portion IDW's G.I. Joe comics. Interesting spin on things. The Cobra series in particular were really gritty.
      1. Sockie
        Sockie
        Yeah, so I've heard.

      I'll keep searching for it. But if I can't find it, I'll settle for reading the plot.

      The one shot that introduces Agent Helix, titled G.I. Joe: Helix Special, is no where to be found on the IDW app. I couldn't even find it on iBooks.
      1. Sockie
        Sockie
        Huh, that's weird. Dunno where you'd have to go to find it.

      Well my reading of IDW G.I. Joe has encountered its first hiccup.
      1. Sockie
        Sockie
        What's that?

      I'm enjoying it so far. More then I thought I would.
    15. Omegashark18
      Omegashark18
      Well, I've now finished G.I. Joe Origins, the chronological first series in the IDW continuity. Some of the arcs I enjoyed more then others. And I'm currently a third of the way through the first ongoing series.
      1. Sockie
        Sockie
        That's great to hear. Hope it's good.

      Neither do I.

      Ultra Magnus, Hound, Arcee, Shockwave, Megatron, Star Saber, Thunderwing, Unknown Evil, and Optimus Primal.

      If it's Shockwave or Thunderwing, that means resurrection for them.

      This whole Power of the Primes thing could prove interesting.
      1. Sockie
        Sockie
        Yeah, a lot of characters on there that could mean interesting things for IDW. Not sure who I want to vote for.

      I read the entire Transformers comics from the beginning(Marvel and IDW), and I recently read the entire original run of G.I. Joe RAH(I'm also part way through IDW's continuation). This should be no problem. :)
    19. Omegashark18
      Omegashark18
      Well, I've copied a list of the whole series in proper reading order. All 196 issues. Tomorrow I start with G.I. Joe Origins.
      1. Sockie

        Good luck with all that reading!

      Sure the consensus is overall mixed. But that didn't stop me from reading AHM and the Ongoing for Transformers.
