Uncanny Skullkickers Gives a (Re)Boot to the Head

Uncanny Skullkickers is everything for everyone,” so claimed the headline for the press release I received today. This February, Image Comics is inviting readers to jump on board action and adventure, newly reinvigorated with a very special adjective – The Uncanny Skullkickers!

Mocking a certain company’s habit of dropping adjectives into their titles and claiming something is new and exciting, Image felt their adding an adjective was a perfect way to remind readers how much fun Skullkickers is to read. And it is. After almost twenty issues, I’m still entertained by the series, it’s action and humor is up their with the best.

Uncanny Skullkickers, written by Jim Zub and drawn by Edwin Huang, begins the second half of the epic six-arc Skullkickers storyline and is a perfect jumping-on point for new readers of the action-comedy fantasy series. And who doesn’t want to be known as a reader of a comic about hard-headed mercenaries knocking heads for fun and profit? I mean, really.

And if you’re a diehard collector of Skullkickers who’s sad that you won’t have a Skullkickers #19 to add to your collection? Don’t worry, Image has thought of everything. In addition to the regular “Uncanny” cover they’re offering a special “issue #19 variant” B cover to make sure your collector streak is unbroken.

Uncanny Skullkickers #1 will available wherever kick-ass comics are sold on February 27! Pre-order it now from the December issue of Previews.
