Snake Eyes: Deadgame to close out with roster of guest talent, including Larry Hama

Larry Hama is as much a part of G.I. Joe history as Stan Lee was Marvel’s. Along with a series of guest stars, he’s set to close out Snake Eyes: Deadgame.

Game over

Issue #5 is scheduled to be the last one for Snake Eyes: Deadgame, a miniseries from Rob Liefeld. A Joe mega-fan himself, Liefeld presented with Deadgame a title that took the property and re-focused it on one of its most popular characters with the ninja/commando Snake Eyes.

While the book was a popular one for publisher IDW during its run, it’s now coming to an end. And this is an ending unlike any other for a Joe title. Actually, it’s an issue (in general) unlike any other for a Joe book, and that’s due to the stunning list of talent on board.

Not that G.I. Joe has been a slouch over the years in terms of creative teams, but this is really unrivaled. Not only is Liefeld a star all by himself, but he’s also got onboard:

Cover by Rob Liefeld
  • 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
  • Chance Wolf

and, just added are:

  • Kevin Eastman
  • Ryan Ottley
  • Eric Canete
  • Karl Kerschl
  • and… Larry Hama

That’s a remarkable list for any comic book, given the level of talent that’s brandished.

“I never dreamed the Snake Eyes: Deadgamefinale 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!”

Coming up fast, Snake Eyes: Deadgame #5 is set to hit the racks on July 7th.
