Editorial Reviews


Sean Ford s Only Skin is just the sort of comic book I like reading. Not only a tale of quirky surreal horror, intrigue, adventure and exquisite humor, this book has a great amount of heart. --Farel Dalrymple, of Omega the Unknown and Pop Gun War

Sean Ford creates a world that s both eerie and warmly mundane. Not an easy feat. --Alison Bechdel, author of the best-selling graphic memoir Fun Home

Only Skin slips like a scalpel through the permeable membrane between life and death, past and present, light and shadow, inside and outside. As evocative of Crockett Johnson's Barnaby as it is of David Lynch and Charles Burns, Sean Ford's uncanny debut graphic novel has its own take on what goes down in and at the edges of small town America. You'll have to let this one kiss your eyes, whisper in your ear, and slither into your head before it uncovers its ghosts and sheds its secrets. After all, it's only skin and so easily shed... --Stephen R. Bissette, Swamp Thing, Taboo, Tyrant, Teen Angels & New Mutants
