G.I. JOE’s Ninja commando Snake Eyes sells out at Diamond Comic Distributors within 24 Hours.

The new IDW series in collaboration with Hasbro from creator Rob Liefeld has been sent back for a second printing. Written and drawn by Liefeld the book has sold out at the distributor level. In a press release sent to AIPT, Liefeld said, “As I have shared with anyone and everyone, Snake Eyes is a dream assignment and getting to depict G.I. JOE characters are one of the great thrills of my career! I am so excited that fans of all ages showed up and consumed our first issue and sold us out!”

AIPT’s Shamus Clancy spoke to Liefeld earlier this week about the series and I highly recommend checking that out. Also check out the 2nd printing cover art below.
