    I can only hope that there aren't too many #1 issues left before the gag runs out. At some point Image or Zub or whoever made the decision on such a confusing numbering scheme just has to realize that "Skullkickers," whatever adjectives come before its name, is an endlessly fun, smartly-written, gorgeously-drawn comic that shouldn't need silly tricks to survive on the stands. If you're a fan of fantasy in any forms -- movies, games, books, or even other comics -- and you're not reading "Skullkickers," you should be. Just make sure you're starting with the right #1.
