Press Release:

We’re huge fans of SKULLKICKERS here at Third Eye, and are totally stoked for this great opportunity for many of you guys to discover this series for the first time with SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS #1.

We’re hosting a special launch party with SKULLKICKERS writer JIM ZUB and artist EDWIN HUANG to kick off this great jumping on point for new readers.

Haven’t read SKULLKICKERS? This series is an incredible piece of work; a must for both comics fans and gamers, as it blends the kind of bloody humor you’d see in ARMY OF DARKNESS or EVIL DEAD with the fantasy genre settings of A GAME OF THRONES, THE HOBBIT or WORLD OF WARCRAFT.

Ever wanted a Dungeons & Dragons-style comic that kicked ass on all fronts? Story, art, and more? SKULLKICKERS is that book.

Picture the best of buddie comedies like THE HANGOVER and cross it with the world of DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS, and that sums up SKULLKICKERS perfectly.

Wanna try the earlier SKULLKICKERS material before our signing? We’ve got the trade paperbacks in stock now, and you can give it a shot with volume 1 for only $9.99!

In addition to this exciting opportunity to meet the creators of one of our favorite gaming-inspired comics, we’re also hosting the first ever INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY!

As part of the Geek & Sundry video blog TABLETOP w/ WIL WHEATON, FELICIA DAY and more, we’ll be doing a very cool event with our guests JIM ZUB & EDWIN HUANG.

You can look forward to the following activities:

FREE TableTop related items!
A demo of MUNCHKIN SKULLKICKERS with the Skullkickers creators!
Special deals on ALL gaming-related items.
Being featured on the event which will be LIVESTREAMED to the Geek & Sundry webchannel!

There will be three Image Comics panels in Emerald City Comicon’s programming, each promising to be a lively discussion.

Putting the “Graphic” in Graphic Novels
It’s time to talk about sex and violence! Black Kiss II, Butcher Baker, Sex, Saga, Happy!, Multiple Warheads, Sex Criminals: these comics are definitely not for kids. Image Comics creators who aren’t shying away from adult situations talk about creating comics for grown-ups. Is there really such a thing as “gratuitous”? What’s it like to be banned in the UK and Canada? Join some of comics most respected creators for an eye-opening conversation. Panelists: Joe Casey (Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker, Sex), Howard Chaykin (Black Kiss II), Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals), Brandon Graham (Multiple Warheads), Fiona Staples (Saga) FRIDAY 5 PM Hall B

Skybound: On the Rise
There’s no limit on what to expect from Skybound, Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics. The Walking Dead continues to dominate comics and television, Invincible just hit its historic 100th issue, and new series are on the horizon. Join Charlie Adlard, Ryan Ottley and more as they discuss what’s in Skybound’s future.
Panelists: Ryan Ottley, Charlie Adlard, Phil Hester, Josh Williamson SATURDAY 1 PM Hall B

Wondrous Worlds, Fractured Futures: Speculative Fiction and Image Comics
With the unlimited potential of comics, there is perhaps no better medium for speculative fiction than comics. Limited only by their imaginations, Image Comics creators have been creating far-flung universes and dystopian futures where science, fantasy, and technology explode in rich possibilities. Find out why they choose science fiction, how they build worlds, and what inspires them. Panelists: Duffy Boudreau (BlackAcre), Joe Harris (Great Pacific), Fiona Staples (Saga), Richard Starkings (Elephantmen), Kurtis J. Wiebe (Peter Panzerfaust), and Riley Rossmo (Debris) SUNDAY 1 PM Hall B
