Only Skin begins with a brother and sister arriving to claim their birthright, a gas station in the middle of nowhere. It's unclear where their father has gone and why he would leave his business. He's one of the several people that have recently vanished from a small mid western town.
The pacing of Only Skin is quiet and seems like it could be a Twilight Zone episode. Questions such as "Who or what killed the deer?" and "Who is the ghost?" suggest a larger narrative unfolding - hopefully one full of satisfying horrific events. All in all I enjoyed the subtle mood of the drawings and am looking forward to seeing where the story will continue in the next issue. (review of issue #1) (Posted on 5/12/12)
