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.

"Skullkickers is still exciting, hilarious, and engaging, and continues to blow every other humor book on the shelves out of the water." - Walter Richardson, Multiversity Comics

    Major Spoilers - Zach Woolf Aug 31, 2012

    The bottom line is that Skullkickers was a great book just when the violence and crazy antics drove the book, but now that we are getting that on top of a deep back-story with a complex storyline, Skullkickers has entered the realm of "must-buy". If you haven't ever read Skullkickers go pick up the first issue, if you like that go read the trades. Once you have fallen in love and make it to this issue hopefully it will strike you as the masterpiece it did me. Skullkickers #17 receives a much-deserved 5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Sep 2, 2012

    Skullkickers is still one of the most fun and entertaining books coming out on a regular basis, and this issue is a particularly strong one from the book's creative team. Zub, Huang, and Coats bust out the big guns, and the end result is a terrific conclusion to what has been an excellent storyline. I can't wait to see what comes next for the book's leads.

    First Comics News - Matthew Szewczyk Aug 29, 2012

    This is not a good issue for the first time fan to pick up but the good news is that the first five issues are available to be read online for free. I would suggest new readers check out those free issues by following the link at the end of the review and really get a good feel for what the series is all about. I think that you will find a lot to enjoy with this group of characters and their adventures. Read Full Review
