Want to get a one-of-a-kind piece of Skullkickers artwork and also help a great cause?
Reading With Pictures is running a fundraiser and Edwin Huang (artist on Skullkickers) has donated the original full size inked artwork for the splash page of Mighty Skullkickers #1 to the cause.
Bidding starts at $75 (A steal – Edwin’s commission drawings are more expensive!) so make sure you get in there and make it yours before Monday.
Over on Katie’s Korner they’ve added a review of Skullkickers Vol. 1: 1000 Opas and a Dead Body that also includes some recommended educational components teachers or librarians could use in tandem with the book. We’re flattered and thrilled that they enjoy the book so much and appreciate the extra effort put into enhancing its value as a resource in a classroom.
“What I like most about Skullkickers: 1000 Opas and a Dead Body is its ability to blend various stylistic techniques that invite comic book, anime, and graphic novel readers of all persuasions to its pages.”
Comic Book Resources has a 6 page preview of Skullkickers #24 (a.k.a. ‘Before Skullkickers’) posted on their site. Check out the incredible artwork of Stjepan Sejic in this short story all about Kusia written by Ron Marz.
From Thursday through to Sunday Jim Zub will be exhibiting at Fan Expo, the largest convention in Canada!
You can find him set up at Artist Alley Table P-34. He’ll be there with Skullkickers comics galore, along with convention-only goodies like variant/sketch covers and the Skullkickers World Map poster.
If you’re in Toronto we hope to see you there! It’s going to be a great show.
This year’s Gen Con Indy (August 15-18) is going to be epic.
Skullkickers will be set up again. Look for Jim Zub at Booth #1749 along with with Tracy Hickman (Dragonlance, Ravenloft) and Howard Tayler (Schlock Mercenary).
At our booth:
Skullkickers Vol. 1-4 (soft cover)
Skullkickers Treasure Trove (hard cover)
along with rare variant covers, sketches and more!
Last year Gen Con was one of our best shows and 2013 should prove no exception. If you’re headed to Indianapolis, make sure you come by!
Skullkickers #24 (aka. Before Skullkickers) arrives at the end of August.
Check out this sneak peek at Kusia short story artwork by the incredible Stjepan Šejić!
