FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Skin Horse Joins GoComics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA November 5, 2008 – Skin Horse, by veteran webcartoonist Shaenon K. Garrity and writer Jeffrey C. Wells, is the latest addition to GoComics, the online distribution portal for uclick and Andrews McMeel Universal. Garrity is the creator of numerous webcomics, including the critically acclaimed online comic strip Narbonic. Skin Horse, cowritten by Garrity and Wells and drawn by Garrity, has been running daily at Skin-Horse.com since January. Starting this week, it will also run on GoComics.com.

Skin Horse follows the staff of Project Skin Horse, a secret government organization dedicated to the protection of America’s nonhuman citizens: robots, beast-men, zombies, and other neglected products of mad science. The organization’s field agents are Sweetheart, a no-nonsense talking dog; Unity, a patchwork Frankenstein girl; and Tip, a cross-dressing psychologist and the team’s token human. The comic is both a gag strip and a serial comic with ongoing story arcs.

Fantagraphics editor Kristy Valenti named Garrity’s previous serial strip, Narbonic, one of the best comics of 2006 in The Comics Journal’s annual Best Comics list. "Shaenon Garrity's art has sharpened and matured with Skin Horse,” she says.

Editorial cartoonist Mike Lynch writes, “It pricks up the ears and eyes. And you have to pay attention. [Garrity and Wells have] a whole world to introduce us to, starting with Tip, Unity, and Sweetheart.”

“I don't usually do reviews here,” Lynch writes on his blog, mikelynchcartoons.blogspot.com, “but I'd like to recommend the strip if you enjoy fantasy mixed with comedy.”

Fans can read the latest Skin Horse strip at www.GoComics.com/skinhorse. They can also sign up to receive each new installment in their email for free through GoComics or have Skin Horse emailed to them daily along with a customized collection of their favorite comics through MyComicsPage.com, a premium subscription service offered by GoComics.

Will this mean it'll leave its current locations, or will it be in addition?

It'll still be on skin-horse.com, with the full archives, as well as on GoComics. I have decreed it so.

Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.
(Sameness Engine) I haven't the 1st notion of what it's for! That's not why I made it-I made it for the sheer joy of making something new! It's getting up to tell me what it wants me to do, though, I can just feel it. It's been giggling a lot at night.
