Those were my initial thoughts when I heard the buzz on the con floor. Then the emails came. Then the Texts. You see, people know I’m a big Snake-Eyes fan…..
This is my Forearm:
This is my dog:
His name is Timber.
And this is right above our Televison:
Soooo, My friends thought this might be important to me.
Of all the amazing announcements and reveals at the NYCC, the one that really hit me in the throat like a karate chop was this one.
Snake-Eyes, thee G.I. Joe, the only one anyone reaaaally cares about; you know the mute, disfigured master martial artist who carried the Real American Heroes throughout most their career, has now gone over to Cobra.
Long time G.I. Joe writer Mike Costa brings Snake-Eyes out of retirement and on to the wrong side. Teamed with Paolo Villanelli, the two will show us a side of this Joe we’ve never seen before… a villain. His first mission: rescue the captive Destro, an action that would surely put him right in the crosshairs of his former teammates, who have a been re-established once again as the United States’ premier counter terrorism force. Oh…and do you know who their leader is now? Scarlet. Yep, Snake-eyes’ sometimes girlfriend and fellow Joe.
This is nuts!!!!!
Once I recovered from the initial shock, I began speculating. It must be an undercover mission right?, maybe mind control…nahhh…he is an imposter! It’s not really Snake Eyes is it???? It’s Storm Shadow…that’s it!
Well you got me hooked, IDW, you got me hooked….
