The Washington Post Talks G.I.Joe and Dawn Moreno with Larry Hama

There’s a new article in the Washington Post that focuses on Dawn Moreno, the new Snake Eyes from IDW Publishing‘s G.I.Joe A Real American Hero! David Betancourt sat down with the godfather of G.I.Joe, Larry Hama, to discuss the smash hit of the new character. From the article – 

“There is definitely a lot of power in donning the mantle. If Dawn had been just another female ninja, nobody would have cared. It’s the whole idea of Snake Eyes living on inside her that makes her stand out enough for readers to give her continuity a try,” Hama said. “Once their eyes are on the page, you have to present a character they can get into, and a story line to back it all up. Otherwise, it’s just a gimmick like an alternate cover or an imaginary story.”

Thanks go to Tom Waltz for the heads up! What are your thoughts on the article? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums
