Deadpool and Cable creator Rob Liefeld will jump into the world of G.I. Joe with “Snake Eyes: Deadgame” for IDW Publishing and Hasbro. Handling both writing and art duties, this Liefeld-led series will hit comic book store shelves in early 2020.

Two words: “bucket list,” Liefeld said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “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!”

Snake Eyes was originally a part of a 1980s relaunch of the famed toy line from Hasbro and Marvel Comics, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. “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,” Liefeld continued. “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 announcement comes in the wake of Paul Allor and Chris Evenhuis’s forthcoming reboot of the main G.I. Joe comic in September. The timing of this upcoming series also coincides with a Snake Eyes solo film currently in development from director Robert Schwentke and writer Evan Spiliotopoulos.
