#80 In A Four-Issue Limited Series

One of my favorite new titles is IDW's GI Joe: A Real American Hero.  This title picks up where the original Marvel series ended, with GI Joe creator Larry Hama starting with issue #156 (well, #155 1/2) and continues the story directly from the old series.  It's great fun and has a lot of vocal supporters.  Now, Transfans want to get in on the action, too!

Check out this link on Newsarama where we learn about the petition amongst Transfans to get IDW to publish a classic Transformers comic written by long time TF scribe Simon Furman, picking up with issue #81 after the Marvel series.  This is starting to gain traction and I have to admit, the idea of restarting the classic series would appeal to a lot of older readers rather than a new continuity.

So what do you folks think?  Should IDW throw a bone to old school Transfans like they did to us Joe fans?  Would you read a classic Transformers comic written by Simon Furman?
