GI Joe Comic Cover Silent OptionIDW Publishing is proud to launch G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero – Silent Option, a four-part miniseries that spotlights the breakout character of their “Dawn of the Arashikage” story arc: Dawn Moreno, the all-new Snake Eyes! The first monthly issue is slated for release this coming September.

Each oversized issue of Silent Option features? a full story by the superstar creative team of longtime G.I. Joe scribe Larry Hama and artist Netho Diaz (Aquaman), plus a four-page backup story entitled “Codename: Helix” by Ryan Ferrier (G.I. Joe vs. Six Million Dollar Man) and Kenneth Loh (KISS).

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!

While focusing on the recently-introduced Dawn Moreno serves as a great entry point for new readers, longtime fans will be rewarded with 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!”

MASK 1980s Cartoon Complete DVD Collection

MASK - Shoehorned acronym responsible for my bad spelling!

This TV cartoon series / Toy line device prevalent in the 1980’s. After the sucess of He Man, Transformers and GI Joe there had to come one that was just as cool (if not cooler) but not remembered with the affection (or Hollywood adventures) of the former.

I loved M.A.S.K. , Cartoon, Comics and action figures. I bought the ‘movie’ on VHS. I lost the little plastic missiles trying to fire them at my little brother.

This 8 disc collection has 25 hours of animated adventures so that I can relive my childhood.

If you don’t know what it is about read on. If you do, Buy The DVDs.

While investigating the mysterious death of his brother, MATT TRAKKER uncovers an international organization known as VENOM, dedicated to nefarious criminal activities in every corner of the world. Driven by his quest to know the truth about his brother s demise, Matt gathers together a number of friends who, like himself, are ordinary people who possess extraordinary talents, and creates MASK. Their objective: to destroy VENOM and its mastermind, the abominable MILES MAYHEM.

Joined by his young son SCOTT and his faithful robot T-BOB, Matt s conspirators in MASK include: BRUCE SATO, an inventor of outlandish children s toys who serves as MASK s engineer and mechanic; HONDO MacLEAN, an ordinary history teacher whose courage and fearlessness make him an integral part of MASK; BUDDY HAWKS, garage mechanic; BRAD TURNER, an outrageous rock musician; ALEX SECTOR, a computer expert who, by day, runs a nondescript pet shop; DUSTY HAYES, a pizza vendor whose speciality is auto and marine stunt driving, and the beautiful GLORIA BAKER, a driving school instructor whose superior mastery of the martial arts makes her a lethal weapon.

To keep their identities secret, each member of MASK wears a mask which also provides them with extraordinary powers, including holographic projection, remote control lasers and the MASK agents even have the ability to transform their vehicles into watercrafts and planes. Armed with their super-powered masks and their desire to make the world a safer place, MASK is relentless in its quest against VENOM, and will never rest until Miles Mayhem is brought to justice for his crimes
