Rule the school this fall with Skottie Young and Aaron Conley's "Bully Wars"
Bullying is never good. That should go without saying. Seeing a bully having to team up with a group of geeks so he can survive a battle royale with other members of the student body? That actually sounds like a lot of fun, and it's the concept behind Skottie Young and Aaron Conley's upcoming Image Comics series Bully Wars.
Head back to school with Rufus, once the biggest bully around, as he's forced to eat some humble pie when he becomes the target of even bigger bullies. Young and Conley describe it as a comedy that's fit for all ages, so look for some big laughs and good life lessons for readers young and old.
SKOTTIE YOUNG AND AARON CONLEY’S BULLY WARS RULES THE SCHOOL THIS SEPTEMBER
PORTLAND, OR, 06/12/2018 — I HATE FAIRYLAND and Deadpool writer Skottie Young teams up with artist Aaron Conley (Sabertooth Swordsman, Rocket Raccoon & Groot) for the hilarious, all-new ongoing series BULLY WARS.
“Aaron and I have been making ourselves laugh with this project all year, and we’re so excited to team up at Image Comics and finally be close to its release in the fall,” said Young. “If you love Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants like me and my kids do, then get ready for the Bully Wars!”
In BULLY WARS, Rufus, the biggest bully in Rottenville since kindergarten, suddenly goes from bully to bullied on the first day of high school. He’s forced to make a shaky pact with his favorite geeks: Spencer and his twin sibling besties, Edith and Ernie. Together they’ll have to find a way to survive the Hunger Games-like contest known simply as the BULLY WARS—where the winner will rule the school!
Bully Wars #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on September 5.
