"From here on out, GI Joe has a new, global mandate. In this new world, where the Earth is beset on all sides by magical shapeshifters, by giant robots from space, by tiny people from another dimension, by Space Knights…its the Joes who are the champions and defenders of humanity and Earth as a whole. That means that we’ll be moving away from a team that exists to protect America’s interests, and toward one that defends and safeguards the Earth as a whole. And since they’ll be doing so in a world filled with such weird stuff… things are going start feeling less Sgt. Rock and more Challengers of the Unknown.

We’re bringing back the lasers, we’re putting a giant robot on the team, and we’re leaning fully into what have always been Giannis and my favorite parts of the series: Those weird science fiction elements. Most importantly though, its the tone and approach of the series that’s going to feel new, but also familiar to anyone who grew up with the Sunbow cartoons. This new GI Joe is, above all else, aspirational. These aren’t grimdark characters confronted with the grisly reality of war and combat — that’s so very far removed from what people want from the franchise. They are passionate, talented, excited young people, whose actions are rooted in a heartfelt desire to make the world a better place."

I'm curious about this "global mandate." I must say I find it extremely hard to believe that all the countries in the world would just unquestioningly let in a group that is like 90% Americans. And that's not even counting Skywarp, who once burned down China's capital city (it wasn't even on Megatron's orders, Skywarp was just bored and decided to kill a few million people for shit and giggles).

I want an Autobot on GIJoe too. Maybe Beachcomber or Hound

this art is rather bland

The art really isn't doing much for me either. :(

I wasn't really a fan of the art either, until I saw that big page full o'Skywarp. Then I was sold.

I really don't like the art on this book. I dislike it less than the art on Optimus Prime, but both of them are books that I'm really enjoying the writing, but having a hard time reading because the art is turning me off.

This art isn't setting the world on fire for me, but it seems OK. Surprised so many folks seem to hate it. I think it's biggest sin is that it's clearly aping an anime/manga sensibility at points without fully embracing that style.

Writing-wise...this seems actually pretty fun, really.

I think this book seems fun, not a huge fan of the art as with others though at times I like the facial expressions on the female characters.

I do like the occasionally darker moments in the Hama comics, and some of the more grounded elements along with the scifi... but I'm enjoying this take so far and am willing to give it a chance.

It's also just great to see GI Joe and Transformers together again.
