Skullkickers Script – Skullkickers #1

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, everyone!

We’ve been asked quite a few times by fans about how Jim Zub writes the stories in Skullkickers – how it’s formatted, how much information is contained in the script and comic writing info in general. With that in mind, we thought we’d post a PDF of the full script for Skullkickers #1 as a way for you to see how it comes together. Click on the cover below to download the zip file and check it out.

If you enjoy this and find it informative, let us know and please pass the site link on to other people.

Thanks!

How the Skullkickers Die?

SKULLKICKERS is a sword & sorcery action-comedy comic being published by Image Comics, the publisher of The Walking Dead, Spawn and many other creator-owned comic titles.

In Skullkickers, two hard-headed mercenaries kill monsters and cause havoc in their search for money, fame and adventure.

If you enjoy Army of Darkness, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Hellboy or have great memories playing D&D with your friends, then this comic is going to push some happy buttons, we assure you.

Feel free to browse around the site and get a feel for the comic, particularly by reading previews of each issue released so far. If those tick your tock, then feel free to purchase Skullkickers from your local comic shop, or click on the covers below to order our books, collecting the first two story arcs in spiffy high quality trade paperbacks.


Our third storyline begins in 2012, a rollicking pirate tale called \’Six Shooter on the Seven Seas\’.

Edwin did a sketch for the shop.

This Maryland shop pulled out all the stops for Jim, Edwin and Misty (the first time all three of us had been in the same spot at the same time) and put together a wonderful signing event. This shop is truly one of the greats and they\’re 100% Skullkickers Certified.

The Buy Pile puts Skullkickers 11 in the spotlight

\"\"

Hannibal Tabu of CBR\’s The Buy Pile column gives kudos to the Skullkickers team once again, beating out a slew of new superhero titles.

\”As always, the simple cameraderie of the two leads — the trademark pistol in a time of swords and sorcery, the relentless drinking — really makes the work sing, even when the antagonist has a crisis of conscience and another becomes an unwitting ally.\”
