Skullkickers Treasure Trove V1

Over on the Kirkus blog this week, I take a look at Skullkickers Treasure Trove: Volume 1.  From the post:

I’m gonna be honest. I picked up SkullKickers Treasure Trove: Volume 1 before Pathfinder: Dark Waters Rising. But I read and reviewed the Pathfinder book first. I bring this up because the two books share a writer – Jim Zub. SkullKickers is almost a resume for Zub to be able to write the Pathfinder comic. As a stand alone, SkullKickers is a fun homage to that dark corner of genre where sword and sorcery meets fantasy and gaming to become something irreverent and well worth your time, and mine. In fact, once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down.  The book follows the adventures of two mercenaries. As near as I can tell, we never know their real names. We have a Dwarf (Shorty?) and a Human (Baldy?) working for hire. The story begins in the town of Mudwich where our heroes are dealing with an overweight werewolf and his cult of followers.
