After Skullkickers gets Uncanny, it will turn Savage
Skullkickers creators Jim Zubkavich and Edward Huang aren’t finished with their flirtation with adjectives just yet. After announcing last month that their Image Comics fantasy action-comedy will be re-branded in February as The Uncanny Skullkickers, complete with a new Issue 1, they’ve now revealed that March will see the release of … Savage Skullkickers #1.
“With over 180 issues released over the past 20 years, Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon is one of the most compelling and consistent creator-owned comics ever made,” Zubkavich said in a statement. “In order to commemorate Erik’s hard work and strident ‘no relaunching, no renumbering’ approach to his series, we thought we’d relaunch and renumber Skullkickers, stealing his precious ‘Savage’ adjective while we’re at it. Thanks, Erik!”
To help prevent headaches among collectors, Image will offer two covers: the regular Savage Skullkickers #1, and an “Issue 20 Variant” to “make sure your collector streak is unbroken.” You can see both below.
