    so this guy is an IDW created character, with no prior history in the franchise prior to idw?

    is it just me or does that just feel wrong?

    I was trying to avoid making that connection.

    At least Drift was never named Autobot leader. If that happened, then I would have to have joined the "I hate Drift!!110ne1" camp.

    Although Bumblebee as leader was quite silly in itself.

    When I saw the name, I was like "Who?"

    Had to google the guy's name and then go "Aaahh, ok.."

    I only read GI Joe sporadically but man, this guy didn't really make an impression when I saw him in the comics.

    Makes sense- they've largely mishandled one Hasbro property, so why not two? :)

    Sadly, that's true. I hope they can make good of it though, GI Joe has largely been handled better than TF, and they still have Dixon and Gage on board, both proven good writers.

    Edit - oh wait Gage left because he'sMarvel exclusive now, tsk and he was Costa's better half before. I do not see this going as well.

    Ugh, before the death of CC, I was going to completely drop GIjoe. The first series was 25 some issues and went nowhere! It was terrible. At least the DDP run was interesting and active. IDW had the Mass Device and...I think that was it. Awful. And the sad part is that I'm friends with Robert Atkins and really want to support him but just can't justify it.

    I like Origins, but it lost some steam towards the end. The 1st part was awesome.

    GI Joe Cobra and later COBRA, kick ass. Now the regular GI Joe book, I don't find as exciting. It started off with a lot of potential but...

    ..I think Dixon works better writing primarily one character as opposed to a team. His issues of the ongoing Snake Eyes book are more interesting to me, than his run on the main GI Joe book.

    Hm that's a good observation. I remember him best for his run on Robin, which pretty much defined the Tim Drake we know today, but don't recall any team book he was on that really grabbed any attention.
