\”A fun read from beginning to end, Skullkickers #6 is a testament to what a little creative ingenuity and good old fashioned entrepreneurial spirit can accomplish in today’s competitive market. Zubkavich and company have helped raise the bar for creator-owned properties and solidified his project in the minds of fans and retailers alike.\”
Edwin and Espen did such a fantastic job on the Skullkickers Volume 1 cover artwork, an endlessly looping vertical piece symbolizing the \’kill the monsters, get the gold\’ paradigm of fantasy games, that we wanted to show it off in a dynamic way.
Misty put together this looping Flash file to give you the full tour of the art, over and over. Fun stuff!
Have you pre-ordered your copy of Skullkickers Volume 1? It arrives in stores on March 9th, 144 pages for only $9.99!
\”In a time when so many comics take themselves seriously, and feel the need to be dark and gritty, (and color themselves in muddy duo tones so as to all but obscure what passes for art), Skullkickers is bright, colorful, and appealing to the eye. It not only reads quite well, but invites the reader to linger on each panel of crisp, clean artwork. More comics should be this entertaining.\”
Image Comics and the creator of Skullkickers are getting ready to kick Seattle in a big way at this year\’s Emerald City Comicon, March 4-6 in Seattle, Washington.
Jim Zub will be at the Image Comics booth (BOOTH 706) celebrating the launch of Skullkickers Volume 1: 1000 Opas and a Dead Body, the first trade paperback of Image\’s new hit action-comedy comic series. Image will have a special limited edition exclusive hardcover edition of the trade for sale, limited to only 250 copies.
Plus, Jim will be appearing at two Emerald City panels over the weekend:
FRIDAY MARCH 4th at 3:00 PM IMAGE COMICS INTRODUCES YOUR NEW FAVOURITES
Come get to know Image\’s rising stars and the best new creator-owned titles like Nonplayer, Intrepids and L\’il Depressed Boy, as well as success stories like John Layman of Chew, Jim Zubkavich of Skullkickers, and Ron Marz, who will be announcing a new project!
SUNDAY MARCH 6th at 12:00 PM CON HORROR STORIES
Conventions are a surreal world, and this panel lets you in on stories straight from the mouths of creators, including Jim Zubkavich (Skullkickers), Travis Hanson (The Bean), Brandon Jerwa (The Mighty Crusaders), Eric Trautmann (Vampirella) and more. These stories are things they did or have seen that they might have regretted, made them laugh, cry, blush, be stunned and at times, simply have to call home about due to their sheer unbelievability.
