Skullkickers #17 is in stores now! I’m incredibly proud of this third story arc and our fans seem to agree that we’ve delivered the goods once again.
Here are links to some of the reviews rolling in:
Comic Buzz: “9/10. The Skullkickers are at their best when things are at their most insane and this arc is a boat full of crazy.”
Fanboy Comics: “Skullkickers is perfect for fans of fantasy adventure or just anyone looking for a fun, violent read that will leave them in stitches.”
Geeks of Doom: “…there are few comics on shelves right now that match Skullkickers in terms of pure unfiltered insanity. This is why comics are made and why we love reading them so much.”
One Geek Nation: “5/5. The story itself flows so damn smoothly, you’d think you’re going down a waterslide. Jim Zub is quickly becoming the next best thing in comics.”
Product of my Dreams: “10/10. This is my second time reading Skullkickers and my excitement for this series hasn’t left yet.”

Andrew Leslie is thoroughly impressed with Skullkickers #16, the 4th part of our \”Six Shooter on the Seven Seas\” story arc.
\”Once again, writer Jim Zub bends a particular genre to his will, incorporating the hilariously beloved Skullkickers flavor into a fast-paced, creature-feature, sea-faring, hyphen-inducing horror comic.\”
James Mason at Comic Buzz reviews Skullkickers #16, our latest release, and gives it high praise on all fronts.
\”Skullkickers is one of the most fun, irreverent and devil may care comics out there. The only thing the creators care about in Skullkickers is that it’s the best comic they can make. Something they succeed at in every issue. The maddening thing is they make it look all too easy.\”
Our latest issue arrived on Wednesday and pop culture site Unleash the Fanboy has a brand new review.
\”…an excellent example of storytelling and a prime source of humor in comic book form. With riffs on pirates, fantasy tropes and everything in between, Skullkickers #16 is worth a read for anyone who appreciates a laugh.\”
