While I'm still not a hundred percent sold on where this incarnation of G.I. Joe is going, I do like the whole thinning of the crowd bit that's being done. It was getting silly twenty-years ago when I was reading the books and watching the toys that were getting produced, but I understood the point of it and they did find some winners in the middle of it all. But it's also the kind of franchise that needs a purge once in awhile in order to get back to basics, so if these named Joe's that are getting offed are ones that have been around for some time, I can appreciate it more. I still think the book needs to clean things up a bit more in terms of getting certain parts of it in line with codenames and how they operate, as well as making it a bit more accessible to new readers who don't have all the history with it. It's an interesting jumping on point, but one that definitely has its challenges. Read Full Review
