Skottie Young and Aaron Conley Start The Bully Wars This September

by James Ferguson

High school can be a terrifying experience for some folks, but if mine came out of the minds of Skottie Young and Aaron Conley, maybe it wouldn’t be that bad. The two are joining forces for Bully Wars, a new ongoing series from Image Comics set to begin this September.

Bully Wars follows Rufus, the biggest bully in Rottenville since kindergarten. On his first day of high school the tables turn and he becomes the victim. In desperation, he teams up with his favorite geeks, Spencer, and his twin sibling besties, Edith and Ernie to find a way to survive a contest like the Hunger Games called the Bully Wars. The winner will rule the school.

Writer Skottie Young says:

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. If you love Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants like me and my kids do, then get ready for the Bully Wars!

Bully Wars #1 will feature a cover by Conley and another by Young. It’s set for release on Wednesday, September 5th, 2018. The final order cutoff deadline for comic shops is Monday, August 13th.
