G.I. Joe Sells Out Another Issue
Starring New Snake EyesIssue #247 Becomes Fourth Consecutive Issue to Sell Out
San Diego, CA (January 10, 2018) – IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce yet another sell out for the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero comic book series! The long-running series continues to pull in fresh readers eager to see the new Snake Eyes, Dawn Moreno, in action!
G.I. JOE mainstay Larry Hama wrote the issue with art by Netho Diaz, which tells the ongoing saga of Dawn, who stars in this “Dawn of the Arashikage” arc, which began last issue with #246. A truly game-changing storyline, fan demand has resulted in yet another sold out issue at the distributor level, following the sell out of the preceding three issues before it, each one earning collector’s item status.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 a fan, I still remember the first time I saw issue #1’s unforgettable cover and thought, ‘That is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,’” said series Editor, Tom Waltz. “As editor, this short evolutionary journey we’ve taken so far with Dawn Moreno has been awesome, more so because I’m sharing it with fantastic folks like SL Gallant, Netho Diaz, and so many others, including our legions of loyal fans around the world. But most of all, working with living legend Larry Hama has been a true treat.”
Issue #247 is on sale now at your local comic shop while supplies last, as well as digitally. A second printing of issue #246 is also now available to pick up which kicks off this story in the lead up to the oversized milestone issue #250 which concludes the “Dawn of the Arashikage” arc!
