Uncanny Skullkickers “Re-Launches” In February

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

We’re in an industry that’s all about re-launching titles and adding adjectives to names that will grab as much readers’ attention as possible. Just look at the Avengers titles and you’ll get what I’m saying.

Image Comics and frequent CBF interviewee/Skullkickers creator Jim Zub is jumping on that trend, although not in the way you think, with Uncanny Skullkickers #1.

The solicit says enough than I can possibly say:

UNCANNY SKULLKICKERS #1
story JIM ZUB
art EDWIN HUANG
cover EDWIN HUANG & MISTY COATS
FEBRUARY 27
32 PAGES / FC / T
$3.50

The UNCANNY SKULLKICKERS: Two hard-headed mercenaries kill monsters and cause havoc in their search for money, fame and adventure! A bold new direction! A perfect jumping-on point! A newly added adjective! Our nineteenth issue, but also a new issue #1! It’s all here, people! Don’t make us use more exclamation marks!!

P.S. Retailers: Rack this comic beside other “Uncanny” comics you may have hanging around and sell a ton of copies. Do it.

The retailer blurb is great and speaks well to how the comics are being marketed. And no surprise Image is going this route, as they’ve parodied comic book event/re-launch solicits in the past.
