More great news about Skullkickers at San Diego Comicon this coming week!
Image Comics BOOTH #2729
We\’ll be bringing two exclusive convention art prints to the show, both taken from rare variant covers you may not have gotten your hands on. These illos won\’t be in our trade paperback and have never been reproduced without our skull trade dress before, so you\’ll want to snag these 11\” x 17\” beauties.
We received our advanced copies of Skullkickers #9 in the mail yesterday so we\’re bringing some copies to the show for eager readers who want to get the first crack at reading part 3 of \’Five Funerals and Bucket of Blood\’.
And, of course, we\’ll have the previously-announced new exclusive hard cover edition of \’1000 Opas and Dead Body\’ for sale at the show. It\’s looking amazing and we can\’t wait to get these limited edition copies in to your hot little hands.
See you at SDCC!
Here we go! Preparations are underway for the biggest comic/game/movie/pop culture convention of the summer – Comic Con International, the wild and wooly San Diego Comicon!
Edwin and Zub of Team Skullkickers will be stationed at Booth #2729, the Image Comics booth, mashing monsters and signing books… and not just any books, mind you…
The limited edition hard cover Skullkickers Vol. 1\’s we printed up for Emerald City Comicon vanished faster than expected, but since we were headed back to press on the regular edition anyways, we printed up a brand new convention-exclusive hard cover edition for SDCC with a spiffy new cover! Check it out:
Convention-only hardcover special edition for $25!
In addition, both Jim and Edwin will be doing a couple signings at Booth #5037, the UDON Entertainment booth, as part of the studio\’s Mega Man Tribute art book release.

TCAF was amazing! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to purchase books and let us know how much they enjoy Skullkickers. Working on a creator-owned project like this is a constant roller coaster of excitement and fear as you release each issue and hope that the reading audience digs in on what you\’ve created. Getting your vote of confidence in person means a lot to everyone on the creative team.
