Arriving In April- Mighty Skullkickers #1 !

NO REST FOR THE MIGHTY

THE MIGHTY SKULLKICKERS #1 has “#1″ on the cover

Berkeley, CA – January 11, 2013 – This April, Image Comics invites readers to keep jumping on board action and adventure with a big ol’ adjective shuffle in – THE MIGHTY SKULLKICKERS!

“After twenty issues of critically-acclaimed bone-busting adventure, we felt it was important to re-remind retailers and readers that Skullkickers is the most enjoyable adventure series in the whole crazy comic industry,” said Image PR and Marketing Director Jennifer de Guzman. “And when you need people to take notice, you reboot that $#%@ just like the big boys do.”

MIGHTY SKULLKICKERS #1, written by commercial sell-out Jim Zub and drawn by the young and impressionable Edwin Huang, continues the epic six-arc Skullkickers storyline. It’s good stuff. Really good. Tell your friends.

“Some jokes get funnier with time. Some adjectives describe a concept perfectly. When we sat down and discussed the ideas at the heart of Skullkickers, we realized all along it should have been called ‘Mighty’” says series creator Jim Zub. “Also, sales. Dirty, dirty sales.”

If you’re a diehard collector of SKULLKICKERS who’s sad that you won’t have a SKULLKICKERS #21 to add to your collection? Don’t worry, we’ve thought of everything. In addition to the regular “Mighty” cover we’re offering a special “issue #21 variant” B cover to make sure your collector streak is unbroken.

It’s back. It never left. It’s a restart that continues right where it left off. MIGHTY SKULLKICKERS #1 will be available wherever kick-ass comics are sold on April 24! Pre-order it now from the February issue of Previews.


Arriving in Late February…

Now available for pre-order from your friendly local comic shop!

The Launch of Something “Savage”

THE LAUNCH OF SOMETHING “SAVAGE”
SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS #1 Is A First Issue

This March Image Comics invites readers to jump on board action and adventure, newly reinvigorated with a very special adjective—THE SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS!

“The response to Uncanny Skullkickers was so tremendous that we knew we couldn’t just let something that was working remain unchanged,” said Image PR and Marketing Director Jennifer de Guzman. “Relaunching Skullkickers was a total game-changer! For a whole month, it wasn’t just plain Skullkickers. It was Uncanny! And now it’s going to be Savage! Game. Changer.”

SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS continues the epic SKULLKICKERS storyline and is a perfect jumping on point for new readers. Even more perfect than last month.

“With over 180 issues released over the past 20 years, Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon is one of the most compelling and consistent creator-owned comics ever made,” said creator Zub. “In order to commemorate Erik’s hard work and strident ‘no relaunching, no renumbering’ approach to his series, we thought we’d relaunch and renumber Skullkickers, stealing his precious ‘Savage’ adjective while we’re at it. Thanks, Erik!”

And if you’re a diehard collector of SKULLKICKERS sad that you won’t have a SKULLKICKERS #20 to add to your collection? Don’t worry, we’ve thought of everything. In addition to the regular “Savage” cover we’re offering a special “issue #20 variant” B cover to make sure your collector streak is unbroken.

It’s new. It’s classic. It’s a modern reinterpretation that gets back to the roots of these timeless characters. SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS #1 is available wherever kick ass comics are sold starting this March.

UNCANNY SKULLKICKERS #1 Is Everything For Everyone

This February, Image Comics invites readers to jump on board action and adventure, newly reinvigorated with a very special adjective – THE UNCANNY SKULLKICKERS!

“After almost twenty issues of critically-acclaimed cranium-smashing adventure, we felt it was important to remind retailers and readers that Skullkickers is the most enjoyable adventure series in the entire comic industry,” said Image PR and Marketing Director Jennifer de Guzman. “What better way to do that than to add a spiffy new adjective to it! That’s what people do, right?”

UNCANNY SKULLKICKERS, written by Jim Zub and drawn by adorable elf-man Edwin Huang, begins the second half of the epic six-arc Skullkickers storyline and is a perfect jumping-on point for new readers of the action-comedy fantasy series. And who doesn’t want to be known as a reader of a comic about hard-headed mercenaries knocking heads for fun and profit? I mean, really.

“We pride ourselves on making each and every issue of Skullkickers accessible, but this spiffy #1 is that times ten,” said creator Zub. “We quickly recap the story that’s come before and then push forward into new action-packed territory: a deadly island of mystery, swashbuckling adventure, ferocious man-eating turtles, pissed-off apes… it’s a cornucopia of entertainment.”

And if you’re a diehard collector of SKULLKICKERS who’s sad that you won’t have a SKULLKICKERS #19 to add to your collection? Don’t worry, we’ve thought of everything. In addition to the regular “Uncanny” cover we’re offering a special “issue #19 variant” B cover to make sure your collector streak is unbroken.

It’s new. It’s classic. It’s a modern reinterpretation that gets back to the roots of these timeless characters. UNCANNY SKULLKICKERS #1 will available wherever kick-ass comics are sold on February 27! Pre-order it now from the December issue of Previews.
