    kudos to Hama but Hasbro is insane. DDP was Joe's savior. Thanks for screwing over the fans, Hasbro. Certainly doesn't give me high hopes for the movie.

    Seeing as Larry pretty much crafted the structure of things with Joe, it's fitting he be involved on some level.Congrats.

    Having worked on many of the DDP GI Joe comics and having seen what they did to repopularize the property, I find it unfortunate that Hasbro would take the license elsewhere rather than reward DDP for what they did by extending the deal. But I guess that's how reality works instead of how things should be.

      It's possible that Hasbro and Devil's Due couldn't agree on terms. I've been involved in a couple of those deals myself, where one side just didn't want to give in on something that was important to the other side. Or they could just be assholes.
