The comic book “Knuckleheads,” by Oklahoma City’s Brian Winkeler and former Oklahoman Robert Wilson IV, will be released digitally on comiXology this Wednesday.    The comic will be published by Monkeybrain Comics.

The series is set for 12 issues at 99 cents each.  Winkeler and Wilson released a limited print edition of the first issue in black-and-white in Oklahoma shops in 2010; the new digital edition is colored by Jordan Boyd.

The series stars Trevor Trevinski, a man who is given a powerful alien artifact, but who doesn’t appear to be a terribly heroic type.

“Since it’s more a sitcom kind of feel, (it’s) like the early ’80s ‘Justice League,’ the funny ‘Justice League’ with Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis, and maybe even Ty Templeton’s ‘Legion of Substitute Heroes’ stuff, which is brilliant, and ‘Stig’s Inferno,’ and Kyle Baker — that kind of comedic comic stuff,” Winkeler said in a 2010 interview with The Oklahoman.

Comic Book Resources has a preview of “Knuckleheads” No. 1.
