Jim Zub is interviewed on the Panel Pals podcast all about Skullkickers and breaking into the comic industry.
Jim\’s interview starts at the 57 minute mark of the podcast.
Jim Zub was the special guest on last night\’s Comic Book Club show in New York. He chats up a storm about Skullkickers (including our Tavern Tales Contest Winners), comic book movies, newly released issues and more. Click on through to listen to audio from the event.
Ryan Tandy at Talk Comix has posted a new review of 1000 Opas and a Dead Body, our spiffy first trade paperback, and he believes we\’re on to something special.
\”An entertaining mix of comedy and violence, Skullkickers is hilarious, chaotic asskickery of the highest order. Buy it as soon as you get a chance.\”
Jim is interviewed on the Panel Culture podcast and, naturally, the subject is Skullkickers and other comic projects Zub has on the go. Lots of good chatter about creator-owned comics, marketing and plans for the series.
Greg Hersom at the Fantasy Literature review site tries out our first trade paperback, \”1000 Opas and a Dead Body\”, and is pleased at the balance of sword & sorcery mixed with action-comedy.
The Skullkickers cleverly tackle every job with confidence and in their own unique style. However, not much can be said for their social skills, because they have none. There is no better way to put it: SKULLKICKERS is just ol’ fashioned fun.
RoughJustice at Geeks of Doom has a spoiler-free review of our game-changing Skullkickers #14 and is suitably impressed with our big reveal.
\”issue 14 provides satisfying reveals and brings up more than a few new mysteries involving Shorty and Baldy. Writer Jim Zub doesn’t throw out mysteries just for the sake of confounding readers either. Every plot twist feels natural to the stories progression in a way that promises huge things on the horizon.\”…
\”Skullkickers #14 does more than provide long awaited answers. It further proves that this is a creative team at the top of their game.\”
Peter Svensson at Bleeding Cool has an excited but spoiler-free rundown of Skullkickers #14 and the potential for it take the series to new heights.
\”Skullkickers 14 is one of those rare issues that make you go back and reread everything with a new understanding. There are precious few comics that can pull that sort of reveal off. I never would have thought that Skullkickers would be one of them.\”…\”It’s high-octane fantasy action-adventure with humor and gorgeous art.\”
Aaron Long at Comicosity has one of the first reviews of Skullkickers #14. He keeps it spoiler-free but lets everyone know how much he enjoyed the ride.
\”Skullkickers is what all adventure comics should be.\”…\”Great script, great art, great issue.\”
Nominations for the 2012 Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Awards are out and Skullkickers writer Jim Zub is nominated in the \’Outstanding Writer\’ category for his work on the Skullkickers second story arc.
Winners won\’t be announced until mid-September, so we\’ll hold off finger crossing until the end of the summer but we\’re excited to see how it goes!
