G.I.Joe A Real American Hero Comics Sell Out Upon New Female Snake Eyes Debut

Earlier today, Mr. Tom Waltz shared word via twitter of exciting news for the G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero title! IDW Publishing has shared a dispatch noting that issues #244, #245 and #246 have all sold out with a second printing on the way! Here’s the scoop from IDW:

San Diego, CA (December 5, 2017) – Who is DAWN MORENO? She’s the new SNAKE-EYES and break-out character of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero! Scripted by legendary G.I. JOE writer Larry Hama, with art by incoming artist Netho Diaz (Aquaman), issue #246 marks the beginning of the “Dawn of the Arashikage” storyline, which sees Dawn, a Mexican-American teenager, take on the mantle of Snake-Eyes, one of the most iconic members of the G.I. Joe team. This pivotal issue in Hama’s long-running G.I. Joe saga has now sold out at the distributor level, as have the preceding issues #244 (featuring Dawn’s first appearance in costume) and #245 (Dawn’s first cover appearance in costume as Snake-Eyes). 

Dawn Moreno, who debuted in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #226, was once a gifted high school athlete whose unique physical abilities drew the attention of Cobra Commander. The Cobra elite put Dawn under intense experimentation, accidentally implanting the memories of the original (and now deceased) Snake-Eyes into Dawn’s fragile teenage mind. Now, as a haunted Dawn struggles against visions of a dark past that does not truly belong to her, Snake-Eyes’ longtime ninja comrades from the Arashikage Clan have joined together to help Dawn overcome the waking nightmare her young life has become…
 
“As I recently told our readers, Dawn Moreno is a fascinating character who provides me with a brand-new canvas to paint on,” said Hama. “With the original Snake-Eyes’ memories implanted into her young mind, Dawn gives me a whole new way of looking at character qualities (both her own and those of Snake-Eyes) that isn’t bogged down by accumulated continuity with a new character, who can voice things that were always left unsaid.”
 
Issue #226 featuring Dawn’s first appearance is sold out, but fans can jump on board with G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Volume 16, which collects that issue and marks the beginning of her journey to becoming Snake-Eyes. To meet demand, a second printing of issue #246 will be rushed to the printer, featuring the special Netho Diaz cover art seen here.

Congratulations to Larry Hama, Netho Diaz, John RoyleThiago GomesMilen ParvanovJagdish KumarTom WaltzIDW Publishing  and all others involved! A big thanks to our friends Skinny and Mainframe77 for the intel! Make sure to join in on our ongoing discussion on the Cobra Island Forums!

Hasbro Pulse Examines 3 Masters of Shadow and Deception

The Hasbro Pulse website has shared a new G.I.Joe related update! The Pulse  Examines 3 masters of shadow and deception with a quick spotlight on the ninjas of G.I.Joe! 

They are masters of deception, martial arts, and own the shadows. Since day 1, ninjas have been pivotal pieces in the grand game of chess that is GI JOE vs Cobra. While there’s a bevy of notable ninjas, Pulse decided to pop a brief spotlight on 3 of the best around.

JINX

With a family lineage with direct ties to the same clan that produced both Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, Jinx was pretty much born to be a ninja. With top-notch stealth and infiltration skills, the undersized Jinx uses her size to her advantage against opponents large and small. She excels at many forms of combat, and due to her training from a blind ninja master, she is a deadly opponent with or without sight.

SNAKE EYES

You know him. You probably love him. Cobra fears him. Snake Eyes is pretty much the gold standard for GI JOE martial artists. A former recon ranger, Snake Eyes honed his skills in Japan, learning the sacred arts of becoming a ninja master. After a long hiatus of training, Snake Eyes returned stateside to live in seclusion. It was there he was recruited to serve as a member of the JOEs. Soon after he met Scarlett, and the rest is pretty much history (that’s a story for another day).

STORM SHADOW

The personal bodyguard of Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow took a different path than his ninja clan brother Snake Eyes. Probably the most conflicted of any Cobra agent, Storm Shadow’s need for vengeance led him to successful runs as both a Cobra agent AND a JOE. While highly proficient with bladed weapons, Storm Shadow excels as a gifted archer. His past is checkered, including stints as a member of the Long Range Recon Patrol, as well as the Young Master to the Arashikage ninja clan—both factions which were an intricate part of Snake Eyes’ history.
