Ever woken up from a great night out and not been entirely sure of the eveningâ€™s events? (Of course not! Youâ€™re a responsible comics fan!) Well, what if instead of losing your keys or phone, something really amazing happenedâ€”and you took it for granted?
Thatâ€™s what happens in Knuckleheads: Fist ContactwhenTrevor K. Trevinski (donâ€™t ask what the â€œKâ€ stands for) is visited by aliens and given a very special giftâ€”The Crystal Fist!
What is it? How does it work? Trev doesn’t remember. But he can use it to cheat at videogames and boost free cable, so everythingâ€™s cool. Until, you know, a giant monster attacks the city.
Co-created by writer Brian Winkeler and artist Robert Wilson IV, Knuckleheads: Fist Contact is an action comedy like none other. Trev, his roommate Lance, and new friends Pizza Guy and Emma (AKA â€œhot, drunk English chickâ€) encounter giant monsters, gun-toting robbers, talking dogs and homicidal aliens, when all they really want to do is eat pizza and watch some Netflix.
â€œWe love sitcoms like Arrested Development and Itâ€™s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,â€ said Winkeler, â€œour goal with Knuckleheads is to create a unique, character-based comedy inspired by our favorite shows.â€
This June Knuckleheads: Fist Contact joins a growing library of essential digital comics debuting in print at IDW. As renowned Monkeybrain titles continue to roll out, IDW is committed to making them available to a wide and passionate audience.
