Image co-founder Rob Liefeld has assembled his own team of JOES to help celebrate IDW’s SNAKE EYES: DEADGAME’s fifth and final issue, which will hit shelves in April.
With names such as Neal Adams, Jerry Ordway, Whilce Portacio, Karl Kesel, Joe Rubinstein, Art Thibert, Philip Tan, Dan Panosian, Dan Fraga, Ed Piskor, Jim Rugg, Tom Scioli, Cory Hamscher and Chance Wolf, there leaves little doubt that fans of all ages won’t find themselves raising their fists in the air yelling “Yo Joe”!
“The arrival of the G.I. JOE, Real American Hero, comic book was a pinnacle of the Bronze Era of comic books! It took fans and retailers by storm, electrifying the industry. As I approached my last issue, I wanted to do something special and unique and create a signature Bronze Era comic experience honoring the legend of G.I Joe for our big finale,” said Liefeld. “I put the call out to some of the biggest and most accomplished names, specifically top inkers and embellishers who shined bright during that age. I asked them if they would each embellish one of my pages or ink a spread and I’ve been floored by both the response and the results of our collaboration! Dream come true!”
“Beyond the Bronze Era talent, I looked to include the generation that grew up on G.I. Joe like Ed Piskor, Philip Tan, Dan Fraga, Tom Scioli. Seeing all these guys jam over my pencil art and storytelling is a fantastic experience. It’s a highlight of my 34-year career and a great finish to our G.I Joe Snake Eyes finale!”
