    Major Spoilers - George Chimples Apr 30, 2013

    Skullkickers reminds me a lot of Major Spoilers' favoriteAtomic Robo in terms of what it's doing. These sort of books are just a lot more fun than most anything coming out of the Big 2 right now. In one issue, there's a doppleganger fight, a wild rumpus, a horde of intelligent apes, a dwarf vomiting seawater then calling out for meat beer "" hell, someone even chops up a melon! This is a series I'd recommend to most anyone. Midway through this arc, Skullkickers shows no signs of slowing down. I also appreciate how, at the end of each issue, the creators pull back the curtain a little and showcase different bits of their creative processes. This is evidence of a creative team that truly wants to engage with a fanbase, and maybe provide a little inspiration as well. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Liam Jose Apr 23, 2013

    This comic is near flawless, and I'm not even that angry about coming in mid-story anymore. This comic had an effect that so few things do these days, and that is that it made me want to track all the previous Skullkickers issues and read them. If you like superhero comics, action comics or humour comics, no one is doing it better than these guys. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Nat Webb Apr 26, 2013

    "Skullkickers" is a consistently great comic, and is well worth a read by anyone looking for a fast-moving, light adventure story with jokes that are actually funny. For fantasy fans, especially ones steeped in the classic influences from which Zub and Huang are clearly drawing, "Skullkickers" is a must-read. Just don't mistake "Mighty Skullkickers" #1 for the first issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 24, 2013

    I really have a strong new appreciation for this series and absolutely love the continuing usage of brand new #1 issues for each chapter. In case you’re tired of it, it’s continuing after this arc for at least another issue so get used to it. I would like some assurance that the series is continuing and it doesn’t need to be numbering, but currently the series doesn’t solicit past June and I’m really anxious to continue with what’s become one of my favorite series of the year. In order to do that though, everyone else has to buy two copies each… GET ON IT! Read Full Review
