Editor’s note: Kory Bing is actually one of the few creators I met at Wondercon whose work I’ve actually read. And I have to say, SKIN DEEP IS AMAZING. I love it to death. It’s like Animorphs, except if the kids morphed into mythical creatures and didn’t have to save their own asses all the time. So I guess a better description would be: a slice-of-life comic/drama about mythical creatures who have the ability to turn human and live in our world.
I actually walked up to Kory’s booth on the first day of the con and fangirled a bit. Then Yuko Ota from Johnny Wander walked up to introduce herself to Kory JUST as I was trying to pay for something. All I remember is that I held out my five dollar bill for a long time, then Yuko noticed me staring at her in silence and I apologized for my quiet little fangirl session. I wanted to stay and get to know both the ladies, but Kory and Yuko started talking about Mass Effect 3 and I don’t know a thing about video games. Guess I’m not cool enough for that club. Oh well!
Anyway, I’m really glad Kory was there so I could show my proper appreciation for her webcomic.
