Skullkickers #16

As is to be expected, the new issue of Skullkickers is a lot of fun.  The baby Thool demon has taken over the minds of most of the women on the Mermaid's Bottom, leaving only the Captain, the female Elf, and our two heroes to try to fight it, free the women who are attacking them, and keep the ship from capsizing in the sudden storm that has imperilled them all.

This is an action-filled issue, so there's not a lot of space for character development or further explanation as to Baldy's history and his arrival in this world.  I presume we'll get back to that stuff eventually, but for at least one issue, I'm perfectly happy to wallow in the madcap action and amusing sound effects. 

In all, a very successful issue of Skullkickers.
