Skottie Young and Aaron Conley's BULLY WARS Rules the School This September

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.

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!
