Hang on there! Easy, pal! I'm sure that IDW is doing the franchise justice...they've appeal to a wide range of folks. I've only read comics based on Nick's TV show and I did like them, but of course I need to see the show to witness this myself. You're right is saying that the Fred Wolf version IS watered down and I even liked the 2005 version better because it was darker and edgier. No, I'm not delusional, I made a stupid assumption only based on a few comic books instead of watching the show.
