    Not a comic book reader, but the style and story looks and sounds interesting. It is definitely better than this crap:

    I'm not too pleased with the human focus, but I need to see the full story to judge how it goes. It has my attention at the moment.

    What actually is this? Is it a new comic or a boiling down of the previous comic series. I bought it but haven't sat down with it. I absolutely hated the preview but heard good things about it from friends.

    Maybe we would've loved to buy this comic but the art is so unpleasant that we are disappointed. And we are expressing that disappointment in words on a message board about said comic.

    Just a guess.

    In a comic with 'GI Joe' right in the title, you're going to have to accept somewhere around a 50% human focus.

    And as others have explained the art is part of the story theme and at lot you seem to not get that.

    I have no doubt. But that doesn't mean that I'm not allowed to not like it nor am I not allowed to post that I don't like it.

    I think it's British English.

    Anyway, although I like retro style comic art, I think this has gone "full retro".

    Never go full retro.

    I got it today at the NC COMICON in Raleigh, NC from the IDW booth. It came with a convention cover. Anyways, it's not really a double issue. It's just a normal size book with half the story and the other half, sketches and notes about the story. It was fun just like the 13 issue series.

    As someone who grabs every GiJoe Vs TF comic I can get my grubby paws on (I *think* I have them all), I'm looking forward to this. I can see why some people hate the art style, but to me it's just "purposely so retro bad it's somehow good" cheesy awesomesauce. Just hope they skip the My Little Pony cameo this time...

    This looks so ridiculous. A movie retelling of a story that was just published last year? I am in.

    This is the first comic book in years that I have had to buy every month.

    "My belief is that art should not be comforting; for comfort, we have mass entertainment and one another. Art should provoke, disturb, arouse our emotions, expand our sympathies in directions we may not anticipate and may not even wish.”

    Scioli has clearly produced a work of art here.
