Skullkickers, by Jim Zubkavich and Chris Stevens, tells the story of two monster-killing mercenaries, a giant bald-headed warrior and a short red-headed dwarf, who make their living killing werewolves, necromancers, plant monsters, and undead, and other foes from classic fantasy literature and games. Image is releasing the second Skullkickers story arc and has released a trade paperback collection of the first.
