Rob Liefeld lends his love-him-or-loathe-him talents to IDW’s newest G.I. Joe mini-series, Snake Eyes: Deadgame this June as both writer and artist.
Snake Eyes has long been the most mysterious member of the G.I. JOE team, but within the pages of DEADGAME, he’ll finally be forced to play his hand! How long can he keep his past classified… and what deadly secrets will come back to haunt him?
But why G.I. Joe and why, in particular Snake Eyes? Here’s Rob to explain on this choice:
