James Fulton at Comics Nexus enjoys Skullkickers volume 2, even when he feels like he shouldn\’t.
\”I’m often surprised that I’m reading Skull Kickers. I’ve never been a Dungeons & Dragons type, and don’t usually go looking for comedic comics. There is, however, something so charming and amusing about the series, that I keep reading despite the fact that I normally hate books like this. Can you give a book higher praise than that?\”
Today\’s the day! Skullkickers Volume 2 arrives at your local comic shop!
Putting out 11 creator-owned issues in a year was a titanic task and this second collection of issues #6-11 is the culmination of that effort.
If you took the time to support our hard work by heading to your local comic shop and picking up a copy of the new book, it would warm our hearts.
Our pals at Third Eye Comics have Skullkickers Volume 2 as their \”Pick of the Week\”.
\”The next slab of awesomeness that is SKULLKICKERS arrives tomorrow, and we know you’re stoked. This killer Image series has been keeping us hooked with its mix of buddy comedies like THE HANGOVER, and World of Warcraft/D&D-style fantasy settings. A great blend of humor that’ll appeal to anyone who digs just plain awesome comics.\”
