Skullkickers on the Battlefield!

All of our fans are amazing and occasionally they do some amazing things that really surprise us.

Skullkickers mega-fan Ian Tornay, EA\’s Community Manager on the newly released Battlefield 3, sent us a wonderful gift in the mail.

Copies of the game…

Along with personalized dog tags for Shorty and Baldy!

Edwin got them too!

So awesome!

Thanks for bringing our monsters mashers on to the battlefield, Ian.
You rock.

In Skullkickers, two hard-headed mercenaries kill monsters and cause havoc in their search for money, fame and adventure. Along the way, they’ll gore goblins, smash skeletons, punch plant people and whomp werewolves.

MTV Geek names Skullkickers one of their Top 10 “Best Series of 2011”, Ain’t It Cool News raves that “Everyone who loves comics should buy Skullkickers” and Bleeding Cool calls Skullkickers “the next Chew”.

Skullkickers Script – Skullkickers #1


We’ve been asked quite a few times by fans about how Jim Zub writes the stories in Skullkickers – how it’s formatted, how much information is contained in the script and comic writing info in general. With that in mind, we thought we’d post a PDF of the full script for Skullkickers #1 as a way for you to see how it comes together. Click on the cover below to download the zip file and check it out.

If you enjoy this and find it informative, let us know and please pass the site link on to other people.

How the Skullkickers Die?


One of Edwin\’s many commissions from New York Comicon two weeks ago. This one was a request from a fan – \”How would the Skullkickers die?\”

Edwin\’s answer to that question is elegant and fitting. 🙂
