    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Sep 27, 2012

    At standard comic book pricing, this anthology would be worth every penny. At $3.99 for 35 story pages, it's an absolute steal. 'Son of Tavern Tales' is everything you love about "Skullkickers" except for Jim and Edwin themselves " though the former finds his way into a few stories in ways readers unfamiliar with the man's versatility may find surprising. Whether you've been interested in "Skullkickers" but have yet to dip into the series, or if you have been reading since issue one, the various creators' authenticity to the characters and the humor insure that #18 is just as good a place to start as #1.

    Finally, the last story (which seems devoid of a title) is probably one of the best. Its hilarious, drawing on more fantasy staples and developing them in a humorous way. Of course, there's a fair amount of fighting and drinking involved too. Its very funny, and very Skullkickers. Read Full Review

    The next story arc is not scheduled to start until 2013 so you have time to get caught up on the pervious issues if you want and if you play D&D or Pathfinder then I think you will find a lot to enjoy in this series. Read Full Review

    At least Jim Zub didn't just leave us hanging with the last issue. He was considerate enough to put together a team of creators to write their own short takes on Shorty and Baldy, put them together, and produce this very issue. We at least have to commend him for that consideration. How many other creators out there today do that? Not very many so pick up this issue and take pleasure in its stories. I know I did.
