Only Skin 1 - Sean Ford
This is the first part of a continuing series, Sean is published three so far. This one sets the scene, which is a tiny slightly odd American town by the side of the highway. The main character has come to the town's gas station to look for her missing father along with her young son. The son soon meets a ghost drawn in a very interesting super cartoony way who leads him into the woods to show him a slaughtered deer, killed by some kind of monster. It's all about atmosphere and mystery. Nothing is revealed in this first issue, as it should be. The drawings really nice, showing a lot of space - wide open plains, woods and flat townscapes. Well worth watching to see what happens next...
