IDW working on a graphic novel based on the raid on bin Laden's hideout

IDW Publishing has announced they're teaming up with Charlie Foxtrot Entertainment to produce a graphic novel based on Team 6's raid on the Taliban tyrant's hideout in Pakistan:
San Diego, CA (June 23, 2011) – IDW Publishing and Charlie Foxtrot Entertainment today have the honor of announcing CODE WORD: GERONIMO, an original graphic novel illustrating the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound by SEAL Team 6 on May 1, 2011. Expertly written by Captain Dale Dye (USMC, Ret.) and Dr. Julia Dye, Ph.D., CODE WORD: GERONIMO offers the amazing, moment-by-moment inside story of the clandestine raid that rid the world of this terrorist mastermind.

“Due to entirely appropriate security concerns, there is some creative license in our script,” said Captain Dye. “But I think readers will be gratified with the detail and thrilled with our take on one of the most daring and successful commando raids in American military history.”
As a matter of fact, yes, I think readers certainly will appreciate their courage to work on a challenging story like this, just like they may appreciate the GI Joe comics already being published by the same outfit. So here's to hoping that they will produce the best and boldest portrayal possible for this project.

Update: here's an AP story about this subject.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
