Reminder: Edwin & Zub in Boston/Woburn This Weekend!

Edwin and Zub are flying in to Boston this afternoon as part of a day and a half event being organized by retailer Larry\’s Wonderful World of Comics for the Woborn Warehouse comic show.

Larry\’s Comics sells a series of exclusive comic variant covers promoting titles he feels are hot or up-and-coming for the comic industry. Soon after Skullkickers #1 came out he contacted Image about getting a variant produced for his store. Usually the variants are just line art or recoloured versions of the regular issue\’s cover but we wanted to make sure SK stood out, so Edwin and colorist Espen Grundetjern put together this eye-catching new cover piece:

SK #1 Retailer Variant (limited to 1000 copies)

If you live in the Boston area we\’d be thrilled to meet you at the show! Besides signing autographs and chatting it up with comic fans, we\’ll be looking for a piece of pin-up art featuring the Skullkickers to spotlight in issue 5 (arriving in stores late January).

It should be a really fun weekend.

New England Signing Expanded – Edwin Huang!


The Skullkickers New England signing gets even better as Larry\’s Wonderful World of Comics announces that Skullkickers artist Edwin Huang will also be on hand for the event this December 18th!

New England Signing and Art Contest!



Red-hot Image comics\’ Skullkickers creator Jim Zubkavich will be the special guest at this month\’s Woburn Comic Book show, and he\’s looking for artwork from a New England fan to publish in his book!

Zubkavich will be the guest on Saturday, December 18th, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Best Western Hotel in Woburn. Admission to the show is free! The show is sponsored by Larry\’s Wonderful World of Comics in Lowell and features dozens of local comic book dealers and distributors.

Besides signing autographs and chatting it up with fellow comic fans, Zubkavich is going to be looking for a piece of pin-up art featuring his characters to spotlight in issue 5 of his ongoing Image comic.

So, would-be artists, this is your chance at the big time. Bring along your artwork for Zubkavich to pore over, and if your offering kicks skulls, you could see your piece making it into the pages of one of the hottest titles on the comic racks these days!

Skullkickers has been described by some as the Hangover meets Dungeons & Dragons, and has already met with critical praise, selling out its first issue with ease.

For directions to the show:
Best Western New Englander
1 RAININ RD, WOBURN, MA right off rt 93 S toward Boston
Take exit 36 to merge onto Montvale Ave toward Woburn

For more information about the show, the art search, or Skullkickers, contact Larry Doherty at Larry\’s Comics at 978-459-5323

Hope to see you – and your artwork – at the show!

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.
