Official Press Release

SKULLKICKERS is kicking down doors all over the place, with great early reviews and advance buzz. Image Comics is proud to announce that despite a significant overprint, SKULLKICKERS #1 has already sold out at the distribution level in advance of its September 22 street date! The second printing of this phenomenal issue will be in stores October 13.

SKULLKICKERS is fantasy action-comedy written by Jim Zubkavich (POPGUN, Street Fighter Legends: Ibuki) with art by the gifted team of Edwin Huang, Chris Stevens (POPGUN) and Misty Coats.

“Everyone on the team was ecstatic about the momentum building for the book,” says Zubkavich. “Even still, when our rep told me the generous print run had sold through before our release date, I was stunned. I can’t wait until people have a chance to give issue one a read and jump on board the wild ride we have planned for the series. Image is on a roll, and we’re proud to be a part of it.”

In SKULLKICKERS, two mercenaries are entangled in a high-class assassination plot, and nothing -- not werewolves, skeletons or black magic -- will stop them from getting paid. If you love fantasy, action-comedy, a touch of black-hearted violence and movies like ARMY OF DARKNESS, SKULLKICKERS is the book for you!

SKULLKICKERS #1 Second Printing (AUG108013), a 32-page full-color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores October 13, 2010. SKULLKICKERS #2 (AUG100490) will be in stores October 20.
