In the darkling wood
A leaf falls in silent arcs
Steel glints in shadow

Arashikage no Hebime[1]

Items of note

GJO IDW019ri
  • Hama often portrayed Snake-Eyes as being kind to animals. In this issue, he had already covertly infiltrated enemy territory, but willingly blew his own cover to help the wolf.
  • On page 18, the wolf's posture - head down, butt up - indicates that he wants to play. Awww!
  • The art on the Retailer Incentive cover is reused from Ashley Wood's Comic Pack homage.

Real-world references

  • The "Stan" mentioned in the solicitation is Stan Lee, known for his trademark quip of "'nuff said!"
  • The Russian helicopter is a Hind D.

Footnotes and References

  1. "Hebime" is a rough Japanese translation of "Snake-Eyes." Hebi = snake, me = eye.
