Out of Skin Archives - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources
Taiyo Matsumoto and Emily Carroll are the recipients of the second annual Cartoonist Studio Prize, presented by The Slate Book Review and the Center for Cartoon Studies.
The two were selected by The Slate Book Review editor Dan Kois, the faculty and students of CCS and this year’s guest judge, Chris Butcher, manager of The Beguiling in Toronto and co-founder of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. Each winner receives $1,000.
We’ve been fans of Emily Carroll‘s haunting webcomics for a few years now, dating back to at least 2010 and her nightmarish tale “His Face All Red,” and continuing with “Margot’s Room.” And now, just in time for Halloween, we’re treated to another: “Out of Skin,” a chilling tale that begins with a woman discovering a half-dozen bodies in a pit in the woods, and ends with … well, you’ll have to read it for yourself.
