Skin Horse By Shaenon K. Garrity and Jeffrey Channing Wells

bzzzzd's Review of Skin Horse
Ms. Garrity's (of Narbonic fame) newest foray into comics is already rife with innuendo and mystery. The teaming of Garrity and Wells may well prove to be a match that will rock the webcomic world - or bring it to it's knees. BWAH-HAHAHAHA!

Shaenon K. Garrity has previous entranced us with her rich tales of Mad Scientist derring-do in her acclaimed Narbonic tales. These stories inspired Jeffery Channing Wells to write a piece of fanfic that was staggering in its scope and breadth. Mr. Wells showed a grasp of understanding of the Narbonic world that makes one wonder if some nefarious manipulation was involved, some transplantation of knowledge and understanding that only the truly MAD can appreciate. In any case, that felicitous union of Well's writing and Garrity's illustration has spawned a new era of adventure.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Skin Horse. Ms. Garrity's unique and endearing style of drawing bring to life the characters that are being voiced by the charismatic and intriguing dialog of Mr. Wells. In the very first panels, mystery abounds, adventure beckons, and Mad Science rears its wonderfully ugly head. We are presented with a rich environment that is presented with subtlety, both through dialog and an economy of line. The reader isn’t hammered over the head with details, but is given the opportunity to speculate and draw conclusion, knowing that such fallacy will prove incorrect – or not. That is the deliciousness of this strip: We don’t know what will happen next, what twists will be perpetrated, what dénouements will be unveiled, what agendas will be hidden.

 

Past performance of both artists promise us grand adventure and great storytelling. So, buckle up, and hang on.
