SDCC 2019: IDW Brings Rob Liefeld To G.I. Joe

The man famous for co-creating the Merc With The Mouth is about to take on a character that is a lot less chatty. IDW has announced that Snake Eyes: Deadgame from Liefeld will be coming early in 2020. Not much is known in the way of details, but you can see some early art from the series above. It seems as if Liefeld will both write and draw the series (or at least some covers.) We will try to get more confirmation at SDCC.

How excited is Liefeld to be working on this book? It seems pretty obvious from this statement: “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,” Liefeld continues,” this will match or exceed it!”

IDW President Chris Ryall seems pretty excited, too. “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!”

The question is, how much are you looking forward to this?
