I Heart Skull-Crusher Is Now An Ongoing Series From BOOM! Studios:

Previously announced as a miniseries, BOOM! Box’s hit I Heart Skull-Crusher is now an ongoing series, written by Josie Campbell with art by Alessio Zonno.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the most popular sport is a death game called Screaming Pain Ball, you might be surprised to learn this is an all-ages series — yet it is! And now the murder will continue, for kids of all ages.

Said editor Elizabeth Brei via press release provided to Comic Book Club: “Josie Campbell and Alessio Zonno have even more action-packed, hilarious hijinks in store for us. The new arc is funny, chaotic, and shockingly touching, just as you’d expect from Trini and the rest of her Screaming Pain Ball teammates! We’re so excited for readers to discover the surprises still to come!”

The second arc of the series will kick off with issue #6 in October, while the first five issues will be collected in a trade to be released in comic book stores on December 25.

Hellboy Art Exhibit Opens This Weekend In California:

Looking for something to do this weekend? In California? Love Hellboy? If you check all three of those boxes, then boy — hellboy — do I have the event for you: The Hellboy 30th Anniversary Tribute Group Show at the Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA.

Opening July 6, curator Gary Deocampo has put together an exhibit of 40 different artists paying tribute to Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, in honor of the character’s 30th anniversary. You probably figured that all out from the title of the art show, but whatever.

Said Deocampo via press release: “Curating this show was a labor of love not only for me and Copro Gallery but for all the artists that joined us on this creative journey. The 30 year anniversary of Hellboy is not only a testament to the universe that was built and still thrives, but to Mike Mignola and his indelible impact on the industry and fans worldwide. This show is a love letter to Hellboy and Mike for all the joy that he and Hellboy continue to gift the world.”

Following an opening reception held 6-10 PM PT on Saturday, July 6, the gallery will be open to the public on Fridays from 11-7 pm, Saturdays from 12-5 pm, and Sundays from 11-6 pm.

Kingdom Come Documentary Heading To Kickstarter:

A new documentary is going behind the scenes of the making of the classic comic book, Kingdom Come. Titled The Legend of Kingdom Come, directed by Remsy Atassi and produced by Sal Abbinanti, the prospective film is heading to Kickstarter later this year.

Not only is the documentary made with the participation of Kingdom Come creators Alex Ross and Mark Waid, it will also feature new interviews with Todd McFarlane, Julie Benson and Shawna Benson, Paul Dini, and more.

Said Ross via press release: “I have loved drawing and reading about superheroes since I was a young child. When Mark and I were creating KINGDOM COME—one of my earliest works—I set out to do exactly what I loved. I brought so much of myself and the people in my life into it. I knew it was special, but I had no idea it would have such an impact on comics, pop culture, and my career. I’m so proud that what we made back then still resonates today. I hope people enjoy this film.”

While no date for the Kickstarter has been announced yet, the pre-launch page is live so you can be alerted when it is available to pledge.
