And knowing is half the battle.
IDW have announced that legendary writer Larry Hama will helm a new G.I. Joe miniseries focusing on Dawn Moreno, the new Snake Eyes. The character has been a part of Joe lore for the better part of a year now, this miniseries will be her first appearance in actual continuity with the main series. Frankly, the more ninjas the better, so this is nothing but good news.
IDW Showcases All-New Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero - Silent Option Miniseries
Legendary G.I. Joe Scribe Larry Hama Assigns the First (un)Official Mission for Breakout Character Dawn Moreno
SAN DIEGO, CA (June 22, 2018) – IDW Publishing is proud to launch G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero - Silent Option, a four-part miniseries that spotlights the breakout character of their “Dawn of the Arashikage” story arc: Dawn Moreno, the all-new Snake Eyes! The first monthly issue is slated for release this coming September.
Each oversized issue of Silent Option features a full story by the superstar creative team of longtime G.I. Joe scribe Larry Hama and artist Netho Diaz (Aquaman), plus a four-page backup story entitled “Codename: Helix” by Ryan Ferrier (G.I. Joe vs. Six Million Dollar Man) and Kenneth Loh (KISS).
In Silent Option, Dawn Moreno – the G.I. Joe team’s newest member, fulfilling the legacy of the legendary Snake Eyes – embarks on her first (un)official mission. But her debut mission may be her last, as she crosses paths with the deadly covert operations officer, Agent Helix!
While focusing on the recently-introduced Dawn Moreno serves as a great entry point for new readers, longtime fans will be rewarded with the introduction of Agent Helix to ARAH canon – a character whose previous appearances were in non-ARAH continuity.
Editor Tom Waltz says, “Following the huge success of the ‘Dawn of the Arashikage’ story arc, we wanted to keep the fantastic action and drama that Larry and Netho created together rolling forward. A standalone miniseries within canon gives us the chance to resume fan-favorite character Dawn Moreno’s adventures as a new team member, while at the same time introducing enigmatic character Agent Helix to the mix. So, working alongside the great folks at Hasbro, Silent Option was born!”
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero - Silent Option #1 will hit comic shops and other retailers this September.
