Comic Buzz Best of 2011

\"\"

The Comic Buzz gang includes Skullkickers on their \”Best of 2011\” list of recommend titles:

\”Skullkickers has been part of my reading schedule for almost 2 years and for me the “Honeymoon period” is still going strong. Whenever the editor of Comicbuzz sends over the latest issue, I always feel a little happier. The comic is essentially a fantasy tale mixed with an exceptionally violent sense of fun. Drawing on the tales of Fritz Leiber’s \’Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser\’ and with a comedic sensibility like Eric Powell’s \’The Goon\’.

The team behind this series (Jim Zub, Edwin Huang, Misty Coats et al) believe in what they do and are having fun while doing it. Skullkickers started off strong, is still going strong and I’ll be there reading it as long as they’ll have me.\” – James
