You’d think helping inhuman monstrosities with their personal problems would be simple. But as the Project Skin Horse field team heads to California to parlay with the Zombie Emperor of Colma, nothing can be trusted except for Tip’s ability to find a date for a wine country weekend. All it takes to tear Skin Horse apart is one really bad day…
“A four-panel comic with gags aplenty that packs plenty of story as well.”
-Stewart C. Baker, SF Signal
Shaenon K. Garrity here. My co-creator, Jeffrey C. Wells, and I have been writing and drawing Skin Horse as a daily webcomic since 2008. In past years, with the generous support of Kickstarter backers, we've published five collections. Now we're working on Volume 6, the first volume entirely in color. That means the best-looking volume of Skin Horse yet, but it also means we need your help to make it happen.
Volume 6 will cover the storylines "My Brother Sam Is Dead," "The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," and "Mixed-Up Files." (We will not be collecting the all-guest-artist story "Grillo Parlante" in print, leaving it as a Web exclusive.) The book will also include an exclusive bonus story, an introduction by Steve Jackson of Steve Jackson Games, and more.
“Garrity and Jeffrey C. Wells continue to kill it on Skin Horse.”
-Gary Tyrell, Fleen
We're asking for $7,000 to print Skin Horse Volume 6. Depending on your pledge, you can get books (both print and ebook editions), sketches, original art, the opportunity to be drawn into the strip, and even a week doing Jeff's job as chief scripter.
Pledge at the highest level and join me for a tiki party at my home in Berkeley, California on the weekend of August 6. You get yourself out here; I'll put you up for two nights at the Rose Garden Inn and show you around town.
Throughout the campaign, we'll unlock additional bonus levels with new rewards. So keep watching this space!
“Do yourself a favor and read this series once simply for the enjoyment, then read it over and over again.”

Thanks a million to Jacob Haller for allowing us to use his song "Relatively Human" in our promo video. You can get it on his album Circumstantial Evidence.
Thanks to Pancha Diaz, our colorist and book designer, for making this book look so darn good.
Finally, thanks in advance to all of you for supporting Skin Horse Volume 6.
Risks and challenges
We've previously published five volumes of Skin Horse, three of them through Kickstarter. We foresee no problems in the publication of Volume 6. We plan to have the book out by the end of 2016.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
