IDW Publishing has announced that Deadpool and Major X creator Rob Liefeld is turning his hand to the iconic G.I. Joe franchise with the new series Snake Eyes: Deadgame, set to launch in 2020.
“Two words: ‘BUCKET LIST,’” says Liefeld, “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!”
“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!” adds Chris Ryall, IDW’s President & Publisher/Chief Creative Officer.
