    The Outcome: Skinned is an experience, a smart and complex story and world that asks readers to accept it for it for what it is. Issue two cultivates the characters of Skinned while pushing the concept. Holt, Daniel and Gowdy have createda comic that does something different and in a crowded comic market it is exceedingly impressive. Read Full Review

    Skinned is an intelligent look at perception and reality that challenges you as you read it. The themes on these pages are heavy but the art is colorful and light. Its the perfect mixture that is a cause for celebration, its a comic that pushes the medium and forces you to think. What more could you ask for? Read Full Review

    This was a step up for this series. These creators know what they're doing and they're playing a longer game than usual, given the format in which they're working. And while it took me four months to catch up with this issue, I'll be eagerly waiting for the next issue to drop. Read Full Review

    Skinned #2 isn't a bad offering, by any means; it's just a bit slow in terms of progress after such a stellar opening. We do have some unanswered questions raised by this issue, of course. Why did Shuda decide to help? What's going on with IRIS? Where is Aldair? And whose blood was that? Issue #3 seems primed to ratchet the story back up and maybe finally give us some needed detail on the world or these characters along with a dose of drama. The premise alone makes Skinned one of this year's potentially huge sleeper hits and I desperately hope that this is just the calm before Holt, Daniel and Gowdy unleash the storm. Read Full Review
