Skullkickers Vol. 1: 1000 Opas and a Dead Body
No, you’re eyes do not deceive you [reader who has been with us for over two years]. Our esteemed writer, Matt Brier, gave us a review of this series some time ago. But, having recently come upon the series myself, and the series being further along than it was at the time of the first article, I’ve decided to take up the mantle of “Skullkickers reviewer”. And with good reason. This series is the bees knees… so to speak.
I mean, ale, axes, and…. fat werewolves?
I guess this is something I could get into. That’s the kind of apprehension with which I approached the series. Perhaps it’s that high-fantasy always seems to take itself so seriously that I’ve been turned off by most fantasy comics or any other material of the genre. I mean, you’ve created an entire world with vast cities, untamed landscapes, and deep characters… but you forgot to give anyone or anything a sense of humor? Skullkickers ignores that nonsense and turns it up to eleven, adding to the genre the best bits of extravagant action and uncouth humor you would expect from a Dungeons and Dragons campaign with friends.
With more than twenty-three issues under its belt, I’m more than a little late to the Skullkickers party. But here I am, and I’ll be honest: damn, I’m happy to be here.
