On July 7, 2021, Rob Liefeld will close out his run on the best-selling G.I. JOE title, Snake Eyes: Deadgame, from Hasbro and IDW! The fifth issue finale features an All-Star list of comic book legends providing inks and finishes to Rob’s penciled art. Not satisfied with just putting together an All-Star team, Rob decided to round out the cast by adding legendary artist and creator Kevin Eastman, Ryan Ottley, Eric Canete, and Karl Kerschl.
Not content with this unparalleled assemblage of All-Star talents, Liefeld wanted to take the event one step further. The Deadpool creator enlisted the Living Legend of G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero, Larry Hama. Rob will ink over Larry Hama’s pencils for a special once-in-a-lifetime collectible cover event.
These artists join the already named list of All-Stars including 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, and Chance Wolf.

Announced at Power-Con in Anaheim, CA, DC Comics and Mattel are teaming up once again to chronicle new adventures of Eternia’s greatest champion in He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse, a six-issue limited series debuting in November. Writer Tim Seeley, artists Dan Fraga and Richard Friend, along with cover artist Inhyuk Lee join forces to tell this tale of heroes making their last stand to protect their kingdoms against an impossible threat. In their desperation, they’re forced to risk their futures by reaching out to an unlikely and potentially dangerous ally.
The scourge of Anti-Eternia is unleashed on the Multiverse bent on utter destruction. Each version of Eternia has fallen in the wake of his devastation as he steals its power and grows stronger. Now it’s up to a rag-tag team of surviving He-Men from across the multiverse to stem the tide, but to do so they’ll have to recruit the one man in existence that might help them win: Prince Keldor, the man who would be Skeletor!
On sale November 20, this 32-page debut issue also features a variant cover by interior artist Dan Fraga and is priced at $3.99.
A mysterious new player enters the Marvel Universe and the X-Men are in his crosshairs! What is his mission and how can the man known as Cable hope to stop him?
Well this was something. Written and penciled by Rob Liefeld (there are feet in this comic of varying quality),Major Xis the kind of book that wouldn’t be out of place if it were released twenty five years ago. The story is pretty straight forward and lacks any real punch – though it does set the remainder of the series up pretty well, and the art is for the most part exactly what you’d expect from Rob Liefeld; energetic, clean and well composed.
The characterization of Wolverine, specifically his dialogue is pretty… well it’s a great approximation of Wolverine from decades ago, chum, and it’s more than enough to take you away from the story that had up until that point been pretty engaging. After you get to that point, the comic does go downhill, which is disappointing after the strong opening. The plot devolves into a “classic” one of time and dimensional travel told around a fight that is at least entertaining to watch.
I say strong, when I really mean “interesting enough to get you to turn the page without hating yourself for buying this comic.” Major X isn’t a bad comic – but neither is it close to being a must read book. It’s just… an above average comic with a derivative X-Men themed name that takes far too long to get to the point, but looks pretty good whilst doing it.
