Yeah G.I. Joe ARAH is great.
Devil’s Due performed a time skip and put 10 years between the original Marvel comics and their run. They still used the sliding time scale a bit because characters that served in Viet Nam would be too old. Now people just served in some Asian conflict.
The Devil’s Due comic does have a definitive ending to the G.I. Joe saga and it is the only comic book version that does really (since the Marvel comic continues twice over of course). Some liked the ending, some didn’t but if you want an ending as opposed to something that seemingly goes on forever go here. With the Marvel stuff it’s still a conclusion to 20 plus years of comics.
G.I. Joe ARAH picks up right where Hama left off with no time skip. However all of the gadgets and military terms are those of today so it takes place right now. Hama isn’t concerned with the time issue since he figures it’s not the real world anyway. For what it’s worth he has yet to mention Viet Nam though.
The new IDW series is a reboot, which obviously takes place today.
I’m more of a fan of the Marvel comics and ARAH but all of the comics are pretty good. Kind of depends on how you want to approach the Joes I suppose.
