NYCC Was Amazing!

Zub and Edwin at NYCC

New York City Comicon was a complete success!

Image brought 250 copies of our first issue to the show and we sold out of them all – so awesome.

The response from fans, retailers and attendees at the show was incredibly positive. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to meet us and buy a copy of the book (or brought their own copy to get signed). We\’re pumped about issue #2 and the future of the series.

If you missed out on issue #1 first printing, make sure you snag the second print #1 arriving in comic stores this Wednesday, October 13th, then get ready for issue #2\’s arrival a week later on Wednesday October 20th.

The Onion\’s prestigious A.V. Club has posted a review of Skullkickers #1 alongside other recent comic reviews and they give the first issue a solid B+ rating.

\”…as an action-comedy in a fantasy setting, this looks like a win.\”

Second Printing of SKULLKICKERS #1 blazes through inventory before release, Third Printing on its way

Berkeley, CA – 4 October 2010 – After an early distribution-level sell out of the first printing of SKULLKICKERS #1, additional orders for the second printing have built far quicker than expected and Image Comics has authorized a rush third printing of the hit first issue to meet reorder demand!

SKULLKICKERS #1, written and drawn by newcomers Jim Zubkavich and Edwin Huang respectively, has whipped up excitement among readers of all stripes. The third printing of SKULLKICKERS, with a brand new cover by Chris Stevens and Saejin Oh, will arrive in stores October 27.

\”Edwin, Misty and I are all unbelievably thrilled that retailers, readers and reviewers are responding so strongly to the first issue,\” says Zubkavich \”When you launch something new like this, you hope it will connect with an audience. We wanted to make a fun action romp and, from what we\’re seeing, that\’s what the market was ready for. Thank you, everyone!\”

In SKULLKICKERS, two mercenaries are entangled in a high-class assassination plot, and nothing — not werewolves, skeletons or black magic — will stop them from getting paid. If you love fantasy, action-comedy, a touch of black-hearted violence and movies like ARMY OF DARKNESS then SKULLKICKERS is the book for you!

SKULLKICKERS #1 Third Printing (AUG108191), a 32-page full-color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores October 27, 2010. SKULLKICKERS #2 (AUG100490) arrives in stores one week earlier, on October 20. Follow the Skullkickers blog at for sneak peeks and more.
