Snake Eyes: Deadgame #2

Rob Liefeld's bizarre mini-series continues as Snake Eyes and Scarlett meet some more odd characters in the woods first in another large warrior who Snake Eyes faces off and then in a woman who claims to be his mentor and also works for the god Kirigun. Snake Eyes is apparently a warrior trained to offer sport to Kirigun during the "Deadgame." Um... yeah.

So two issues in the story doesn't make much more sense, if any. There is plenty of action here with Snake Eyes in action against both the warrior and his former mentor. Liefeld also provides some narration from Scarlett about her relationship with our title character.

The comic ends with Snake Eyes captured and at the mercy of Kirigun who has yet to be impressed by his would-be adversary. We also get a cameo from the character I've been waiting for as Storm Shadow shows up. I'm not sure if he'll bring any answers to tie Snake Eyes' past and the Arashikage back to current events, but at least he can look cool in this crazy ass comic, or at least as cool as Liefeld can draw him.
