Snake Eyes: Deadgame writer/artist Rob Liefeld enlists legendary G.I. Joe comic creator Larry Hama for the fifth and final issue’s collectible cover.
Snake Eyes: Deadgame writer/artist Rob Liefeld has enlisted legendary G.I. Joe comic book creator Larry Hama for the series’ fifth and final issue, with IDW Publishing describing the collaboration a “special once-in-a-lifetime collectible cover event.”
“The fifth issue finale features an All-Star list of comic book legends providing inks and finishes to Rob’s penciled art,” IDW said of Snake Eyes: Deadgame #5. “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 (Invincible, Amazing Spider-Man), Eric Canete (Justice League) and Karl Kerschl (Deadpool, Superman).”
The publisher’s official release continues, “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 Hero, Larry Hama. Rob will ink over Larry Hama’s pencils for a special once-in-a-lifetime collectible cover event.”
Snake Eyes: Deadgame #5 is scheduled for release on Wednesday, July 7 — just over two weeks before the new live-action film Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins premieres in theaters on Friday, July 23. Hama, Eastman, Ottley, Canete and Kerschl join the already extensive list of Liefeld’s Deadgame collaborators, which includes Neal Adams, Jerry Ordway, Whilce Portacio, Karl Kesel, Art Thibert, Philip Tan, Dan Panosian, Dan Fraga, Ed Piskor, Marat Mychaels, Jim Rugg, Tom Scioli, Cory Hamscher, Paul Scott, Karl Alstaetter and Chance Wolf.
“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,” said 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,” added 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!”
Written and illustrated by Rob Liefeld, Snake Eyes: Deadgame #5 goes on sale July 7 from IDW Publishing.
