Capt. Dale Dye is a retired U.S. Marine Corps Captain who has served as military adviser on films such as “Born on the Fourth of July,” “Saving Private Ryan,” and “Platoon.” He has also written military-themed novels and screenplays, and has acted in various roles – he can be seen in this season’s television series, “Falling Skies,” and in the upcoming film, “Larry Crowne.”
This week, Capt. Dale and his wife, Julia, announced they have written a graphic novel on Osama bin Laden’s capture, titled “Code Word: Geronimo” [IDW Publishing, September]. The Dyes worked with illustrators Amin Amat and Gerry Kissell, assembling research on the actual events into a narrative, and then depicting it in visual form.
Speakeasy caught up with the Dyes to discuss their research for the book, Capt. Dye’s own experience with hideouts and raids, and why Capt. Dye stays so active in the arts.
