“A DOZEN COUSINS AND A CRUMPLED CROWN,” Part One

Weep no more. SKULLKICKERS is back with another head-crushing story arc to fill the fantasy fun void in your life.

The dwarf has been forcibly returned to his homeland and the deranged diminutive denizens of Dwayre will make sure it’s a homecoming like no other.

Review – Uncanny Skullkickers #1

uncannysk01_coveraWith one of the best press release campaigns of recent memory leading up and promoting it, there was some high expectations from me when I sat down to read Uncanny Skullkickers #1. I’ve read the majority of the previous eighteen issues, and the series is one I always thought deserved WAY more attention than it got. After a too long break, this week sees a new release, either the nineteenth issue or the first issue of an “uncanny” new series. Either way, the issue kicks ass!!!!

This is the first issue of the second story, an excellent jumping-on point for folks. While bald, gun wielding Rex is still a main focus, his former dwarven partner gets his own journey and story in this same issue. Instead, Rex is now dealing with Kusia as they’re stranded on an island after being shipwrecked. The two do as you’d expect, deal with being shipwrecked and stranded, so getting food, building shelter, stuff like that.

So, there’s not tons of action here, but the issue’s humor is front and center. Skullkickers has always been a series that mixes humor and action and does it damn near perfectly. It always exudes fun, and this first issue is no exception. Jim Zubkavich is a master of these types of comics, with series and more (if you can’t get enough).

Edwin Huang‘s art is amazing as well. The style is clean with an almost animated look to it all. It’s a style that fits the fun tone of the comic’s story.

Between the story and the art, Skullkickers is a series that captures the fun of the types of fantasy stories that are told with a twenty sided die at so many dinner tables every week. It’s a D&D campaign that’s gone completely off the rails. It’s been too long of a break for the series. I’m psyched it’s back and you should read this to find out why you should be psyched too!

“SIX SHOOTER ON THE SEVEN SEAS,” Conclusion
Somebody DIES! Or, everyone DIES! There’s lots of DYING! Oh man, it’s some kind of DEATH-fest goin’ around. It’s all epic and brutal and a major character DIES so you better order a ho-jillion copies. No, seriously, someone DIES. Big DEADING in the house. Also: The end of our incredible third story arc. Sweet.

“SIX SHOOTER ON THE SEVEN SEAS,” Part Four
Ancient evil has arisen aboard the pirate ship called the Mermaid’s Bottom in this, the penultimate part of our 3rd story arc. Mind-control, maidens, monsters, meat, and more words that start with “M”. Everybody say it with me now: “Mmmmmmmmm…”
