Rob Liefeld has always been one of the more controversial comic book artists around but there's no denying that he's made a huge impact with the community; I mean, why else would he get so many projects in 2019? Most people have assumed that his style was only ever relevant in the ‘90s but here he is, with Major X and all these Marvel variant covers, not to mention another Deadpool graphic novel in the works.

Well, it seems like Liefeld is about to handle another prestigious character and he's not from Marvel or DC but IDW. The man will be handling a new GI Joe comic called Snake Eyes: Deadly Game and it's scheduled to come out in 2020. This is the first time he's ever done some work for IDW and it should be a nice change of pace for the creator.

Here's what Liefeld said about the project (via Newsarama):

"Two words: 'BUCKET LIST. 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! 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. 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!"

Snake Eyes: Deadly Game is aiming for an early 2020 release.
