Comic Book Quickies 7.28.11

Quickies by Shaun Daniels and Edited by Sharon Wong

Skullkickers Issue #9  Written by Jim Zub, Art by Edwin Huang, Colors by Misty Coats, Cover Art by Saejin Oh and Published by Image Comics.  Retail Price $2.99

The nameless mercenary duo find themselves out of the frying pan and back into the fire in this issue.  When seen last, the Big Guy was faced with having to defeat a monstrous ape creature of Rancor-like proportions.  In true Skullkickers fashion, the monster is dispatched at the very start, highlighting the humor of this book.  The rest of the issue brings the laughs and action, and hints at a connection between the real assassin and the noblemen.
The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde #4  Written by Cole Haddon, Art by M. S. Corley, Colors by Jim Campbell, Cover Art by M. S. Corley and Published by Darkhorse Comics.  Retail Price $3.50

How do you end a miniseries that involves some of the most infamous London characters of both the literary and real world?  With an epic showdown at a sewage pumping plant, of course.  This series is drawing to a close with the identity of Jack the Ripper having been discovered, and Dr. Jekyll and Inspector Thomas Adye of Scotland Yard barreling down on the fiendish villain.  By the end of this issue, you’ll be questioning who the good guys are, if there are any to speak of!

The Vault Issue #1  Written by Sam Sarkar, Art by Garrie Gastonny, Colors by Sakti Yuwono, Cover Art by Bagus Hutomo and Published by Image Comics.  Retail Price $2.99

It’s hard to pass up a comic featuring one of our favorite unsolved mysteries, the Money Pit of Oak Island.  A group of scientists and like-minded, greedy adventurers seek the treasure on the island, off the coast of Nova Scotia.  With high tech equipment, they start to find connections between the Great Pyramid and the Money Pit but what the group finds at the bottom might be more than anyone bargained for.
