What’s always amazed me about the runaway hit cartoon show Rick & Morty is how completely misunderstood Rick Sanchez is by many of his fans.

Jim Zub Chats with the Pullbox About Skullkickers: Caster Bastards & the Great Grotesque

Described by Zub as his “love letter to Conan the Barbarian and Dungeons & Dragons, and swords and sorcery in general,” Skullkickers tracks the antics of the two aforementioned sellswords as they bash and bungle their way through the multiverse, gathering up a host of interesting friends and foes along the way.
