In a press release from IDW, Liefeld said about his experience:
“Working on Snake Eyes, and G.I. JOE specifically, was a highlight of my 35 years in comics. I hadn’t been inspired like this in a long while. These are legendary characters and it was a privilege to work with them, and with IDW and Hasbro to create this body of work.”
“Working on Deadgame Declassified was bittersweet as I was reflecting on the outstanding process of working with the most legendary collection of talent that has come together on a single comic in decades. I want to thank my editor John Barber for the best experience I’ve ever had.”
“I’m so excited for the entire saga to be collected in trade form, and even more excited to promote it and get it into consumers’ hands!”
