Skullkickers #15

Written by Jim Zubkavich

This issue of Skullkickers reveals more of Rex Maraud's history, as he continues his battle with the creature that hatched out of an egg two issues back.

I don't want to spoil Rex's history, which is pretty unexpected in a swords and sorcery comedy fantasy comic like this, but suffice it to say, we do learn what happened to his hair, and how he reloads his gun.  I doubt you expected either explanation to turn out the way it did.

Zubkavich and company continue to do some very nice work on this comic.  Zubkavich uses a dual narrator thing with this comic that reminds me of how some writers write Deadpool, except for the fact that here it's actually funny. 

Really, any comic that features Tlahuelpuchi, the Vampire Turkey, however briefly, deserves to be bought immediately.  Now I'd like to see a comic where Tlahuelpuchi fights Poyo, the gamecock from Chew...
