Head on over to your favourite local comic shop and pick up Skullkickers #9, then let us know what you think of it!
Skullkickers #8 is in stores starting today. It\’s the second part of our \’Five Funerals and a Bucket of Blood\’ story arc and I really do feel it\’s one of the most entertaining issues we\’ve released so far.
It has ridiculous gunplay, a street brawl, a secret fight pit and two mercenaries trying to get themselves robbed by thieves. There are hi-jinks aplenty heaped on top of our usual mix of action and comedy.
Tell your friends, your enemies and strangers you meet – Skullkickers brings the fun with each and every issue, on time and $2.99.
Ray Fawkes, Tavern Tale short story writer in SK #6 and creator of Possessions and One Soul for Oni Press, sketched up this gritty water colour piece of everyone\’s favourite skull-kicking Dwarf at the Calgary Comic Expo last weekend. Click on the pic for a full sized look!
Jim Zub will be at Ultimate Comics in North Carolina this Saturday June 25th for a special Skullkegger signing event. If you live in the area we\’d love to see you there!
Atomic Robo super artist Scott Wegener did up a fun little sketch of the Skullkickers at HeroesCon two weeks ago. His deceptively simple linework and clean design sense work well with their distinctive features.
Over on Flames Rising they\’ve just posted up a Skullkickers caption contest. Click on over to check it out and you could win one of our limited edition hardcover trade paperbacks!
Today sees the release of Shinku #1, a brand new creator-owned series from Image comics. In the back of last week\’s Skullkickers #7 we had an exclusive Shinku preview as a way of showing people the high action and fantastic storytelling in this book.
Also in SK#7 was our first ad swap with Oni Press\’ The Sixth Gun comic series. This supernatural western tale has amazing characters and a fascinating mythology driving the story. Monsters, wild west action and demonic weapons – what more could you ask for?
Both of these books are ones the Skullkickers team feel you should be reading. It\’s a great time for creator-owned comics and there\’s a fantastic range of titles on the shelves each week. If you\’re not reading Shinku or The Sixth Gun, we highly recommend that you do so.
