IDW's "Code Word: Geronimo"

IDW Publishing's one-shot graphic novel, "Code Word: Geronimo", in association with Charlie Foxtrot Entertainment, will be available September 6, 2011, written by Captain Dale Dye (USMC, Ret.) and Dr. Julia Dye, with illustrations by Gerry Kissell and Amin Amat :
"...'Code Word: Geronimo' offers a blow-by-blow account inside the story of the clandestine raid on Osama bin Laden's compound by SEAL Team 6, May 1, 2011..."
"Due to entirely appropriate security concerns," said Dye, "there is some creative license in our script. 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."
A portion of the proceeds from "Code Word: Geronimo" will be donated to a charity supporting military service members. "I have worked for many years now with Charlie Foxtrot Entertainment on a number of successful projects," said Tom Waltz, IDW editor, former Marine and Desert Storm I veteran. "But none of those compare to the excitement and pride I have for 'Code Word: Geronimo'. The Dyes have put together a fantastic script detailing the heroically dangerous raid by 'SEAL Team 6' against 'Public Enemy Number One' and I firmly believe you won't get a more accurate account of this pivotal moment in history unless it is told by the SEAL team members themselves." Following his stint as a Captain in the US Marine Corps, Dye retired, becoming an actor and 'military advisor' on more than 70 film productions including "Platoon", "Saving Private Ryan", "Band Of Brothers" and "The Pacific".
