    There is so much to enjoy with this book and serves as a solid introduction to G.I. Joe. I was excited when this project was announced and was not let down. Rob Liefeld has another hit on his hands for sure. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jul 15, 2020

    In the final analysis, Snake Eyes: Deadgame #1 is a damn good ninja comic, a showcase for Rob Liefeld's action storytelling, and in my case, a strong introduction to the G.I. Joe universe. This first issue shows Snake Eyes' strength as a solo act, and I'm interested to see what Liefeld, Chad Bowers, Adelso Corona, and Federico Blee do with an ensemble cast in subsequent issues.

    Big time action mix with a rather conventional story for a debut that long-term G.I. Joe fans will immediately dig, but may not be great for new ones. Read Full Review

    Overall, the plot is intriguing and it will be interesting to find out more about Snake Eyes past, but the art and dialogue put a damper on the story in this issue. Read Full Review

    Despite my love for the character, and the strong possibility that Storm Shadow will be involved as the mini-series continues, I can't see myself staying with this comic for very long. Read Full Review

    I've been pretty hard on Rob Liefield in my Major X reviews yet here I am reviewing another series with his name attached, Snake Eyes: Dead Game. Even after calling Major X #5 I still immediately added the series to my pull list.

    I haven't read a G.I. Joe comic in over a decade but even with the distance Dead Game feels like a classic Joe story. At the very least it feels like a slightly more mature version of the animated series.

    The aforementioned story is simple enough. An ancient evil seemingly rises from the grave and Snake Eyes is the only one that can stop him. Other Joes cameo including Roadblock, Scarlett, and the original G.I. Joe, Joseph Colton. They more
