On July 7, 2021, Rob Liefeld will close out his run on the best-selling G.I. JOE title, Snake Eyes: Deadgame, from Hasbro and IDW! The fifth issue finale features an All-Star list of comic book legends providing inks and finishes to Rob’s penciled art. Not satisfied with just putting together an All-Star team, Rob decided to round out the cast by adding legendary artist and creator Kevin Eastman (TMNT), Ryan Ottley (InvincibleAmazing Spider-Man), Eric Canete (Justice League), and Karl Kerschl (DeadpoolSuperman).
 
Not content with this unparalleled assemblage of All-Star talents, Liefeld wanted to take the event one step further. The Deadpool creator enlisted the Living Legend of G.I. JOE: A Real American HeroLarry Hama. Rob will ink over Larry Hama’s pencils for a special once-in-a-lifetime collectible cover event.
 
“I never dreamed the Snake Eyes: Deadgame finale would go out in such style, jamming alongside some of the greatest, most celebrated artists and creators in the history of comic books,” says Liefeld. “It’s been a dream come true, collaborating with my favorite artists in the business, past and present! The fans are in for something really special!”
 
Snake Eyes: Deadgame has been a non-stop rollercoaster of action,” says IDW Editor-in-Chief John Barber. “Rob’s pulled out all the stops on this final issue, and I shouldn’t have been surprised that he’d bring in Larry Hama — the guy responsible for the greatest Snake Eyes comics of all time — to collaborate on a cover!”
