Skullkickers is action/adventure comedy, swords-and-sorcery style. No one knows who these two mercenaries are or where they came from. The only thing that's clear is they're two of the most ornery, trouble-making warriors that've ever lived.

An Image comic first, and still in publication, older issues make up the webcomic.

The comic can be found here.. It updates weekdays.

Tropes found in Skullkickers:

 Shorty: Killin' can make some folks jittery, it's true. But after enough of 'em, tha death don't shake yu up...it's a rush!

 Baldy: Woah. Now that's a leech.

  • The Fair Folk: The fairies have some unsettling plans to restore nature.
  • Fantasy Gun Control: Baldy's revolver is pretty much the only practical firearm in the world.
    • Aside from him (and some secret group he's insinuated to be a member of) the rest of the world doesn't even know what gunpowder is.
  • Fastball Special: Baldy throws Shorty up a tower at one point.
  • Gentle Giant: He's still a ruthless Blood Knight, but Baldy is the softer-spoken, more intelligent, and far more emotionally stable of the two.
  • Glamour Failure: Usually, Baldy's gun, being a weapon given to him by an Eldritch Abomination, is unremarked on by the people of this world. But, when Baldy points his gun in someone's face long enough, people start to question just what the hell it is he's pointing in their face. Observe
  • Hook Hand: Captain Cherry
  • Idiot Hero: Both of the protagonists, although Shorty more so than Baldy.

 Readers: Why does the human [fill in the blank]?

Writers: Because he's not very smart.

Readers: Why does the dwarf [fill in the blank]?

Writers: Because he's stupid.

 Writers: T'would suck, verily. Thine Englishe prof doth not read thee Skullekickerse.
