This ongoing graphic novel presents a unique blend of familiar myth and modern settings as the stage for very 'real' characters that you can identify with.
I stumbled onto Skin Deep several months ago, and once I read a few pages I was hooked. It took a while to go through all of her back panels, but it was well worth the time. What is funny is that I don't even like one of her main characters - but it's because she comes across as a real person to me who would be annoying in real life. (You have to figure out who I am talking about on your own.)
Kory manages to make each of her characters a complete person - they have histories, personalities, quirks, and both good and bad points. Her art style is clean and colorful, and very distinctive. I highly recommend her sketch book - lots of neat drawings for cheap.
In any case, if you aren't reading Skin Deep regularly, you are missing out on some great storytelling.
