From the creator of Image's HOAX HUNTERS and newcomer Drew Zucker comes SKYBREAKER, a dark tale of revenge set in the Wild West. Skybreaker is a man of two worlds, half Sioux and half Christian. When these worlds clash, he is betrayed and left for dead--and now it's time for revenge. SKYBREAKER explores the violent roots of American life, and how you can never kill your way to peace.

    I had high hopes for this series and it did not disappoint. What’s even crazier is that it’s being sold at the usual Monkey Brain price of just ninety-nine cents. I’ve bought numerous full length issues from the “Big Two” at the same page count and didn’t enjoying them nearly as much. If you’re a fan of Westerns or Deadwood then you’ll definitely want to check it out. Seriously this is some of the most impressive narrative and dialog that I’ve read all year. Read Full Review

    Skybreaker feels like it could be a Vertigo series, printed on newspaper stock with a sixty issue run. For readers' sakes, let's hope there is enough story to carry us there, as Moreci and Zucker have established world from the outset that feels ripe with possibilities. Read Full Review

    All that violence looks awful pretty too, thanks to Drew Zucker. His art has a clean and crisp quality that gives Skybreaker a smooth feel. The best bits are also the most violent, when axes hit heads or brains get splattered. It's good stuff. The only thing really missing is color. Skybreaker is a black and white book, but Zucker's art is just begging for some colors. He does some grayscale work here and there, which looks nice, but there are plenty of panels that feel sparse due to the lack of color. Skybreaker is a mighty fine comic book and further proves that Monkeybrain is the publisher to watch these days. Read Full Review
