I won't deny I don't care for the revamped Battlestar Galactica, as I feel it reinvented the characters, than just carry on the first series, but in the case of the new GI Joe series,m i think it can work because Larry Hama himself will have an active role in re establishing the ARAH mythos. And that's where IDW will have an edge.
The new Battlestar Galactica (and Knight Rider-which I've mixed feelings for) were both created by Glen A. Larson, but Mr. Larson has no real influence on it. Its the same with the Bionic Woman, the same character in NAME only. but the series is no way equal to the original due to its revamps.
With Larry on hand, GI Joe will have a far better chance to regain its glory days.
