Exclusive: Skottie Young & Aaron Conley Declare <i>Bully Wars</i> at Image Comics

Skottie Young’s deliriously violent I Hate Fairyland is one of Image Comics’ most beloved and successful ongoing comics, and, as announced at Chicago’s C2E2 convention this week, Young will soon expand his Image domination as he teams up with Sabertooth Swordsman artist Aaron Conley, colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieu and letterer Nate Piekos to launch Bully Wars, billed as an “all-ages Freaks and Geeks meets Hunger Games…without the killing.”

Set in the forebodingly named Rottenville, Bully Wars follows new freshman Spencer and his lifelong bully, Rufus, as they form an uneasy alliance to help Rufus compete in the “Bully Wars,” a challenge to establish the pecking order in their new school. Will Rufus rise to the raucous occasion or will he join Spencer down on the bottom rung? Comic fans will have to pick up the first issue this August to learn more, but Paste readers can take an exclusive first look at Conley and Beaulieu’s cover and interior art below.
