The Skullkickers find some time to kick back and relax... and by 'relax', we mean, 'Mash more monsters.'

This issue is a Skullkicking short story smorgasbord by top-flight comic talent BRIAN CLEVINGER (Atomic Robo), RAY FAWKES (Possessions), CHRIS SIMS (The Invincible Super Blog), ADAM WARREN (Empowered), CHAMBA (Street Fighter), SCOTT HEPBURN (Star Wars), JOE VRIENS (Darkstalkers) and JIM ZUBKAVICH (Oh yeah, an actual SKULLKICKERS guy).

    I haven't been completely won over by Skullkickers to be honest but this issue works purely because it is small doses. The characters work well as icons of themselves here and each creator brings some level of creation or pomp that works on this landscape perfectly. Read Full Review

    This issue is a great diversion in what otherwise would have been a gap month. All creators set out to show us a little bit more of the leads " they're blood thirty warriors who put weapons before brains and manage to kill whatever gets in their path. But they're still good fun-time guys. This sort of venture should become mandatory in comics as the variety of views come together to make a comic that is so much fun you'll definitely read it more than once. Read Full Review

    If I was a regular reader of Skullkickers, I might be able to tell you that these stories fit in perfectly with the series so far. But I can't, so I'll just say this: it's awesome. Read Full Review

    This issue is a perfectly fine breather and a nice chance to see the characters being worked on by different creative teams. It goes to show that in the right hands the Skullkickers could go on for a long time. Read Full Review
