I don't actually like GIJoe as much as Transformers. Transformers was the first comic I can remember reading and it's one of the last comics I STOP reading when that kind of thing becomes necessary. Usually, when I can only buy four or five comics, it'll be Transformers and X-Titles. Since I'm burned out on Marvel (for the moment), it's just Transformers (and Avengers because I have a subscription).
Though I DID recently reread the first issue of GIJoe. It was a free read on ComiXology and I was amazed at how good it was. The thing was a self contained story with actual action choreography! It got all of the introductions out of the way without feeling forced. There was definitely some meat on it's bones and I can tell why this was one of Marvel's top selling books for it's time. Sure, it had a bit of cheese mixed in but sometimes that just makes a better meal.
