Jeffrey Channing Wells (co-author) reluctantly began writing fictions in 1996 when the theater department at his university denied him access to the vocal performance classes he actually wanted, and the world has not been safe since. He is the author of numerous plays, serial stories and robot battle anthems (actually, just the one) and is now apparently co-writing a webcomic. He is kind of at a loss as to how this all happened. Watch him do his own thing at The Scrivnarium, a WordPress Site Like All The Cool People Have (obtained mere moments before all the cool people went to Tumblr). You can contact him via his personal blog’s contact form.

Shaenon K. Garrity (co-author and artist) has written and/or drawn a lot of webcomics, including NarbonicLi’l Mell, and Monster of the Week. She also writes stuff and works as a manga editor. Her graphic novel The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor, with art by Christopher Baldwin, is available from Simon and Schuster. You can get the complete rundown at You can contact her at me(at)

Pancha Diaz (colorist) is an editor at Viz Media. In her spare time she writes comics, sometimes draws them, and dabbles in illustration. She also designs for the Couscous Collective, including the Couscous collections, Skin Horse, and the Narbonic Perfect Collection.  Find her comics at


Who Does What on Skin Horse?
Let’s see…the initial concept was Shaenon’s idea. Shaenon and Jeffrey toss ideas back and forth and write scripts from the results; Jeffrey writes some scripts, and Shaenon writes others. See if you can guess which are which! Then Shaenon draws the final strips. And Jeffrey writes mad-scientist lullubies and things.  Pancha colors the strips and designs our fancy Skin Horse books.

Can I Buy Books and Stuff?
Yes, and thank you for asking! Skin Horse books and art are available online at The Couscous Store. You can also buy the books at brick-and-mortar stores out in the real world.

Skin Horse has earned the following kudos:
