The man behind the success that is Skullkickers and Makeshift Miracle is back on Comic Book Fury for 2012 to share his plans for the new year. In this exquisite interview (at least to my knowledge), we get the following from Jim Zub:

  • Reflections on a great 2011 for his comics properties
  • The next arc of Skullkickers for 2012
  • A Munchkin Skullkickers game? Is Jim killing off the Wizard of Oz or something?
  • What is Makeshift Miracle and what do we have to look forward to next with the series?
  • His 2012 readings and predictions for the industry

If you haven’t caught on to his Skullkickers work, volumes one and two are out now for your purchasing and viewing pleasure. And you can check for updates on the main Skullkickers site.

And check out the online feed of Makeshift Miracle currently running now!

You can also check Jim’s shenanigans out on his live journal. He also stays afloat on that social media space you crazy kids love to talk about.
