    In the spirit of the previous Tavern Tales, Before Skullkickers is hilarious with precious plot nuggets sprinkled here and there. Read Full Review

    The artwork presents the customary cartoony style we expect from this series and doesn't fail to augment the humor in the storytelling department. This is the perfect issue for old and new fans alike. Read Full Review

    I think this works as a stepping on point for the book. For an issue #24, I did not feel lost and while clearly I did not have context for everything, I have also been reading long enough to not suffer greatly for it. Admittedly this book is different from the normal title but at a minimum you at least get a portion of the creative team. Feel free to let me know what you think. Read Full Review

    It's also a great issue if you're a new reader or just confused by the fact that the original number returned to the series. Even though Zub makes some great commentary about zero/prequel issues, he makes sure that this issue is successful in fulfilling the original intent of these types of issues. New or old readers are left feeling very welcomed on this series so check it out. Read Full Review

    Don't let the light-hearted art or content fool you. Skullkickers is one of the smartest comics out there and issue #24 only sets the stage for more crazy to come. Bring it on! Read Full Review

    Although the Tavern Tales released in between story arcs are often irritating breaks from the main story, the latest installment really provided something new to the saga of Skullkickers. Although each tale remained very brief and without tremendous depth, they were funny and served to reinforce the history of each character featured in this wonderful series. Furthermore, the cover of this particular issue, a throwback to the original Watchmen series, was one of the best spoof covers they have used! Read Full Review
