This was a fun nostalgic trip. The early days of the old Marvel Joe book were the first comics I ever collected, so it was fun/nostalgic to see what IDW was doing with the team/characters. I like the concept, and this book makes a perfect jumping on point for new readers. interestingly, I found the Origins issues much more confusingly en medias res than the six issues of the G.I. Joe book proper.
The first 2 thirds of this are plodding and the artwork isn't up to much - I was going to go with 2 stars, but the last third picks up with the introduction of Cobra/Destro/Baroness - and the series starts to feel on a better footing. So worth it but only if you stick with it - skim the first 60%
