  1. The issue in question was printed back in the 80's. The colors were off on most of the Joes in that issue and then there was the infamous "Hedge Hopper" who we can assume that was supposed to be Star Duster.

    Gi Joe 32

    Yes, it exists. I have one in my collection. Just FYI, the cover images that Jeff has in the comic section of Yo Joe.com are all scans from someone who has the comic. (I know because I have provide a few scans for him) Phil
  3. I read it, and I like it. I have been a GI Joe comic fan since the first Marvel books hit shelves years ago. Currently the main line is good and I enjoy picking it up every month because it takes me back to my childhood and lets me turn back the clock for a little while. The Reloaded line has me hooked. I can understand where some people don't care for it, and where many of the old school (or new school) GI Joe fans don't care for it. Reloaded is taking the GI Joe world and doing two things with it: 1.) Updating it. - No more Vietnam references, no more wondering why Snake-Eyes is still running around kicking ass and taking names at the age of 50+, and no more 20+ years of continuity. Now, I am all for continuity, I love the 20+ years of history that GI Joe has and the characters that have been developed. However, sometimes it does get old trying to keep track of who is who and who did what when. To me it is nice to pick up an issue of Reloaded and if I have a question go back a couple issues to find the answer instead of a couple dozen issues. 2.) Changing it. - Yes, that is right I said change....which usually around most areas in the world is bad. The GI Joe team in concept is still the same, Cobra is still the same in concept, but the characters, the people who we grew up, got to know, became our favorite heroes or villians are now different in some way. This either draws people in or pushes people away. Me? It drew me in. Has Reloaded been perfect? No. The art has been hit or miss (thus we have a new art team coming on board), and the story has moved a bit too slow for most people or there has been a lack of action (thus we have Chuck Dixon taking the reigns). Both these things have hurt the book considerably. I for one am glad to see the new artists coming on board and am very excited about Dixon taking over the writing. It would have been easy for DD to pull the plug and move on, but I believe (as I guess someone at DD believes too) that there is a great potential with this book and they just need someone on the book to bring out that potential. I am hoping Dixon is that person. By this point there are those who are saying "GI Joe didn't need to be updated and it didn't need to be changed." To that, I have no reply because that is your personal belief and I am not going to tell you what to think. All I will tell you, is that if you believe that then Reloaded is not for you, plain and simple. I have told numerous people who are deeply entrenched in the main series that Reloaded is not for them because it will change the way you see the characters you grew up with. To those that think change is not a bad thing and updating is not a bad thing then hang with the series a little longer and let's see where Dixon takes us. Bottom line, is Reloaded different? Yes. Is Reloaded for everyone? No. Should Reloaded be canceled? No. Because it has done what it set out to do and that is bring new people into the GI Joe world. I have met and chatted with people that have no interest in the main series, but are faithful followers of Reloaded. Remember when Reloaded was pitched, it was not for the fans, but to introduce GI Joe to a new group of readers. Ok...I have rambled long enough here.... Be good. Phil
  4. The crossover I have always wanted to see was GI Joe and Team 7. I had hopes that since Team 7 was an Image title and Devil's Due was printing through Image at the beginning that someone might suggest the idea.
  5. CT, I am down in Austin (North Austin, about an hour from Ft. Hood). Shoot me a PM and maybe we can get together and talk GI Joe when you get back. Phil
  6. Well, the way I like to put it is. For those of us who collect only the comic, reprints and incentive covers are kind of like toy collectors looking for that TRU exclusive. But you are correct the inside story is the important part, but for guys like me....incentive and reprint covers are the fun part of the "hunt"
  7. I think it all depends on where you look There is a lot of GI Joe comic talk over Here
  8. Plano wouldn't be bad for me, but that weekend I will be in the field at Camp Bowie.
  9. I am in Austin, and would be up for a meet if I am available at the time.
  10. Ain't nothing wrong with that. The Reloaded title is not for everyone. Me, I still love both series. The Main title gives me the original line and keeps them near and dear to the heart, and the Reloaded title gives me something a little edgier and up to date. Both have their place.
  11. I am going to step in here and explain what the Reloaded story is all about. Reloaded IS NOT an "Early Years" GI Joe. Think the Ultimate line and that is what GI Joe Reloaded is. GI Joe Reloaded is the telling of the GI Joe mythos in a modern setting. The Joes are not Vietnam Vets, and the team was not formed in the 80s. Here we have a serious terrorist threat from an organization named Cobra and Hawk and Duke form a team to deal with them. They are non-sanctioned, non-government supported (for now anyway), and they have all basicly given up their careers do to this. Feel free to come over to Joe Reloaded.com and check out the info there on the series. Hopefully this will clear some of the items up. Phil
  12. David, say it ain't so man. The news section you provide for fans is awesome, I check it daily to see who has the latest comics reviewed. As always, the site is yours and you are free to do with it as you see fit, but I rank QKTheatre with Yo Joe.com and JMMs Comic site as THE places for Joe fans to visit. Phil
  13. I am in the married with child catagory. After my wife and I did our budget we set aside a certain amount of dollars a month that we can spend on whatever we want. For me it is a good deal since I only collect the GI Joe Comics and am always with in the budget.
  14. The short answer would be yes, but I would say that Reborn was the introduction of GI Joe Reloaded, not a preview, but it is all from your point of view.
  15. Josh was kind enough to answer a few questions in regards to the GI Joe Reloaded title. Check it out here. Phil
