Some of Image Comics’ most exciting new creators assemble to talk about their new work and life as independent comics creators.

Retailing the New Generation of Comics
With creator-owned hits like The Walking Dead, Morning Glories, and Chew grabbing their places on the sales charts and bringing in new readers to comic shops, the comics industry is excited about new titles and new ideas. What are the best retailers in comics doing to strengthen and support the creator-owned comic revolution while competing with faceless online outlets or big box bookstores? If you’re a comic creator, retailer or fan, we’ll help you understand how to stay on top of the next wave of hidden gems.

Gen Con Indy Wrap-Up

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to gen Con Indy 2011 and stopped by the booth to say \”hi\” or pick up a copy of Skullkickers. The reaction I received from fans and new readers was unbelievably warm and the show was a complete thrill.

Howard, Laura, Tracy and the entire booth crew (lovingly dubbed \”the Kokomo Irregulars\”) were fantastic booth mates for the weekend who helped get me up to speed and make sure the whole thing ran smoothly. Their hard work made it easier for me to focus on showing new readers what Skullkickers was all about. I owe them, big time.

On the last day there was a lot of discussion about what we\’d do \’next year\’ to make things even better. The fact that everyone was so quick to make me a part of their 2012 plans warmed my heart. I\’m pretty sure Skullkickers will be at Gen Con 2012 to keep the momentum we generated this year rolling forward. Thanks for your support!


A fan came by with a themed sketchbook focused on \’knitting\’. Shorty is not impressed.

Skullkickers at Gen Con Indy 2011!


We are exciting about Gen Con Indy coming up on August 4-7 in Indianapolis, Indiana!

Zub will be exhibiting at North America\’s largest gaming and fantasy convention alongside Howard Tayler (Schlock Mercenary) and Tracy Hickman (Dragonlance, XDM X-treme Dungeon Master) at Booth #1553 in the main exhibit hall.

We\’ll have trade paperbacks, limited edition hard covers, art prints and special RPG stat giveaways to get fans and new readers on board the Skullkickers adventure. If you\’re going to the show, come by and say \”hi\”!

Edwin Huang and Misty Coats (our penciler and colorist on SK) will be at the Chicago Comic-Con in just a couple weeks (August 11-14th). If you\’re headed down to the show, please swing by Artist Alley with your copies of Skullkickers (or buy them there if you haven\’t already) and say \”Hi!\”
