Dawn Moreno was recently named the new Snake-Eyes in IDW Publishing's long-running G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, and now she's getting her own limited series titled G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero - Silent Option.
Iconic G.I. Joe scribe Larry Hama, who created Moreno, will write this limited series, joined by artist Netho Diaz. Each issue will also include a four-page serial by Ryan Ferrier and Kenneth Loh titled "Codename: Helix."
The four-issue G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero - Silent Option will follow the new Snake-Eyes on what IDW calls her "first (un)official mission" - and in it she'll come against Agent Helix in her G.I. Joe: A real American Hero canon debut. Helix first debuted in the 2009 video game G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, and appeared in some non-ARAH titles at IDW.
“Following the huge success of the ‘Dawn of the Arashikage’ story arc, we wanted to keep the fantastic action and drama that Larry Hama and artist Netho Diaz created together rolling forward," said editor Tom Waltz. "A standalone miniseries within canon – and yet separate from the monthly ongoing title – seemed like the best way to do that, giving us all the chance to resume fan-favorite character Dawn Moreno’s adventures as a new G.I. Joe 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 is scheduled to debut this September.
