    It was a continuation, set about seven years later. At first, it was pretty good, but I think it jumped the shark hard when a bunch of dead characters started returning (Serpentor, the SAW Viper), and then they killed off a bunch of main characters for no reason (Lady Jaye, Mindbender).

    Marvel published GIJoe, GIJoe Special Missions (mostly single-issue stories), GIJoe European Missions (reprints of the UK's Action Force, with the dialogue touched up to fit with the American version), GIJoe and the Transformers (a godawful crossover that had little effect on Joe, but really shook up the TF comic), Order of Battle, and I think that's it. There were Yearbooks, which were really annuals of the main title, and a few reprints.

    As for Devil's Due, they've had a few bazillion one-shots and miniseries.

    The first Devil's Due series was called A Real American Hero and was the continuation of the Marvel series. It ended after #36 (I think) and was replaced by America's Elite.

    The new stuff is pretty good once you get past the fact that its not Hama's work. Once you settle in its actually very good.

    Wow, thats something rare right now, people complimenting DD. It seems any more all people want to do is bash DD, but it also seem's like everyone is bashing almost every aspect of joes more than usual (Seems like people think the only good joe storys were to the late #70 issues and ARAH only good figures were till 86 ).
    Back yo topic, sort of, I really enjoyed DD's take on the joes and have most of the issues. I do recommend getting them to go with your marvel run as they did a good job following the marvel run.

    Yeah, they were actually pretty good. I didn't think so at first, but I had to allow the characters to grow on me. I did like the marvel series better, but there were so mediocre and even bad issues in that series as well. My only issue with DD in the end was the fact that I felt like there were times when too much happened between panels. There were occasions in which I actually felt like I had skiped a page. But, overall a definate winner. Hate to see the series go. I hate that we now have to readjust to a new interpretation of the characters and all that. I know I shouldn't complain, at least we have a comic to read still.

    I don't think it was bad at first. For a year or two, it was quite good. Then it became painfully obvious they'd run out of ideas. When more characters were returning from the dead in one issue than in an entire year-long X-Men crossover, something was wrong.

    And then they started killing characters right and left for no discernible reason. I'm fine with killing folks off, but there needs to be a point. This didn't even seem to be shock value; it came across more as, "Crap, what do we do now? Kill some people--it'll make readers pay attention for one more issue!"
