Thanks to Comic Book Resources for its article discussing the new Metal Gear Solid comic book series
, launching this September from IDW Publishing
. According to writer Kris Oprisko, the Ashley Wood
-illustrated comic "follows the story line of the original game, in which Snake must infiltrate an Alaskan island overrun by a genetically-enhanced terrorist group. His mission: to find and rescue two hostages as well as ending the terrorist threat - a threat that includes the specter of a nuclear strike."
Wood, who has "previously done some work for Konami on their Contra video game"
, provides an interesting visual take
on Solid Snake, and elsewhere, IDW President Ted Adams reveals that "CVO [Covert Vampiric Operations] is being developed by Konami as a video game."
