Official Press Release
Just when you thought that you’d had enough Skullboy, Dark Horse Comics proudly announces his return with The Mighty Skullboy Army Volume 2!
Jacob Chabot was nominated in 2008 for an Eisner Award for Best Publication for Teens, and now he’s back to finish the job with another hilarious collection of short stories! This is Skullboy’s second volume of manic fun, and the robotic, rascally Unit 1 and supersmart, simian Unit 2 await his orders. They’re ready to face any challenge that comes Skullboy’s way, from dodge balls to monster brawls—but are you ready?
Are you ready for necktie-wearing bears in thinking caps, ninja in tuxedos, police chases, giant squid battles, time-travel showdowns, not-so-evil duplicates, vengeful pigeons, flying dogs, wrestlers, jungle commando clashes, and more? Well, are you? That dull expression on your face doesn’t fill us with much hope. Well, when you can finally muster the courage and buck up, fill out that Skull Co. application and wait right here. Our secretary will be with you shortly.
“This is just silly fun cartooning, suitable for all ages with some great timing, smashing gags, and an extremely clean black and white linework which I just love to bits.”—Comic Book Resources
The Mighty Skullboy Army Volume 2 is on sale January 25, 2012.
