Dawn Moreno Gets A Mission As Snake Eyes In G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero: Silent Option

by Hannah Means Shannon

In IDW’s G.I Joe series “Dawn of the Arashikage”, we met Dawn Moreno as Snake Eyes. Now she’ll be getting her own four part miniseries in “Silent Option” with the first issue landing in September.

Each issue of Silent Option will be oversized and feature​ a full story by the longtime G.I. Joe scribe Larry Hama and artist Netho Diaz (Aquaman), plus a four-page backup story called “Codename: Helix” by Ryan Ferrier (G.I. Joe vs. Six Million Dollar Man) and Kenneth Loh (KISS).
IDW explains:

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!


IDW also notes that this series will serve as 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!
