If you’re a fan of fantasy, RPGs, or even anime like Slayers, then do yourself a favor and check out Skullkickers by Jim Zubkavich, from Image Comics. The book is a lot of fun…it’s light fantasy, without much story or depth, but a whole heck of a lot of action. I mentioned the Slayers anime because that is almost exactly what Zub is doing with Skullkickers and it is a lot of fun.

A while back, Zub put out a call for people to pitch stories and art to him in sort of a contest to have your work run in an issue of the comic. The image I whipped up on the Skullkickers blank variant from the Image Expo this year was inspired by the story I had in mind. Unfortunately, I never got around to putting something together for the actual comic (I lost my interest once I saw that he didn’t want completed work by a writer/artist), but you can check out a glimpse of what might have been.

I continue to enjoy the trade paperback collections of Skullkickers and recommend them to anyone looking for good, action-packed zaniness set against a fantasy backdrop.
