\”ONE THOUSAND OPAS AND A DEAD BODY\” Part Three

A pilfered poison pabulum has pickled pieces of our protagonist\’s paunch while portentous poetic prophecies proudly parade apace, parlaying a perilous paradigm. Paraphrasing – Skullkickers is a particularly perfect packaged pamphlet of plucky pulp worth every precious penny in perpetuity. Purchase!

\”Zubkavich continues to be one of comics\’ best fantasists. This rowdy action story has whimsy, charm and wit.\”
– Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman)
