Next year, Rob Liefeld begins his first entry into the G.I. Joe universe with Snake Eyes: Deadgame. IDW Publishing is keeping a tight lid on the details of the story, but promises an action-packed epic for us.
Two words: ‘BUCKET LIST,’ One more word: ‘ICON.’ Snake Eyes is Wolverine, Deadpool, and Spider Man rolled into one amazing character for an entire generation of fans that thrilled to his adventures in comics and cartoons and hung on his every toy release! My parents drove me all over the county to get me G.I. Joe action figures as a kid. These were my first and most favorite toys. Working with Hasbro and all my friends at IDW has been a blast so far. I can’t wait to get this work out into the public! If you enjoyed my recent Marvel work, this will match or exceed it!
This seems like a pretty great fit. Liefeld’s style complements G.I. Joe very well.
Chris Ryall, IDW’s President & Publisher/Chief Creative Officer added:
The high-octane, adrenaline-fueled action and adventure Rob brings to every comic he creates is a perfect fit for Snake Eyes, and we’re all as excited as you are to see him really cut loose on the pages of this very special G.I. Joe series!
Look for Snake Eyes: Deadgame in early 2020.
