I mean the first thing that needs to be said is that Skulldigger looks amazing!

The cover is just phenomenal I love how Skeleton boy pops while Skulldigger stays in the background. The artwork all the way through is incredible I loved how at the most gruesome part the panel flips to a whiteout and it adds to the violence without being over the top gory the starkness of the white says it all.

I like the story too it’s almost Batman-esque if Batman was saved from his parents killer by a psychopath with a Skull for a weapon but Skulldigger seems to have a big heart and takes Skeleton Boy under his wing what happens next is anyone’s guess. Skeleton boy might take to vigilantism like a duck to water and end up even more suited to it than Skulldigger or he might have to work at it, either way, it’s about to be one hell of a trip for him especially with Grimjim breaking out. Grimjim looks like a perfect arch-nemesis and sounds insane which could be very entertaining to read. I cant wait to see how it unfolds
