That’s the end of Greetings from Dogpatch! Thanks for reading!
I’m updating a day early because IT IS MY BIRTHDAY so my GIFT TO YOU is an early comic page! Hooray!
I will be taking a break through November to work on getting the next comic ready! I will be doing READER QUESTIONS during November! So if you have a question, ask it here (or in the blog post below) and I might answer it!
The comic will return December 3rd!
Ohh, happy birthday, Kory! <3
Happy Birthday Kory! Sent you a gift.. Enjoy!
Ah, happy birthday! I also need to say, I love Gabe’s sassy pose there in panel 3
Any chance you’ll tell us ahead of time what characters we’ll be seeing next arc?
Can angels and demons be hidden humans like mythic creatures?
Happy Birthday c:
And -slides in a question-
Has Michelle been practicing on a ‘middle’ form? c:
Very happy birthday!
The trout! It’s eating them!
Does each Avalon with a standing population have a dedicated tailor/seamstress to alter all the clothes for various tails/wings/appendages? Anyone with sewing skill would probably be in high demand with all the super varied mid-forms out there that would still need clothes.
On a somewhat related note, are there any monsters/magical critters that are spider or silkworm-based? I would imagine they would naturally have some skill in weaving and/or sewing. A Jorogumo (japanese myth) or Arachne (Greek) comes to mind.
Wouldn’t any medallions take care of that?
No, we’ve established that it doesn’t — while the medallions for certain species may make clothing entirely disappear (cough Michelle’s pants cough), it’s either that or nothing. Merial rips her pants if she changes while wearing them, and Michelle mentioned she had to cut holes in her shirt for her wings.
Will we have a comic where we’ll see Merial and Ricky meet?
Question: How did Mrya damage her medallion?
Best alt text is best.
Happy Birthday, Kory!
Looking forward to the next installment. Also can’t wait to get this one in hard copy!
Are we going to see some of the Babylonian mythical creatures, like the Mušḫuššu? And if we aren’t, what would they look like in full and half forms?
Question to Henk.
Dogs Patch was formerly an amusement park, have any of you ever worked there?
Are there any norse mythical critters?
Oh my gosh hank you are a red-neck libertarian why do I find you so gosh darn cute.
Thanks for one of the most incredible SD chapters, and Happy Birthday too
Until next chapter!
This was a very, very good chapter. I’ve liked Myra since “The one eyed bear” and this episode just made me like her more. All of the characters were very good and getting another look at Gabe was interesting as well. He is a Mystery that won’t be cracked and that is good. The world needs its Mysteries.
Oh I have a question!
If sphinxes had medallions did dragons as well? Or did they have shape-shifting magic and/or not care at all and just go about all dragon-y?
Happy There Birthday Kory! You rock, and so does your work!
Great chapter, looking forward to the next installment of this unique comic.
Will we ever find out what happened to the boy who can’t possibly be a harpy from Exchanges?
I was wondering if there are any differences between Male and Female Bandersnatches? (or any Wonderland creature for that matter.)
Gef The Talking Mongoose from the Isle of Man.
…is he showing up sometime? Is/was he for real in this universe?
Do you think you could walk us through how you thought up this story?
However long or short, I always love to hear ways people think of things, have a look behind the scenes.
(Possibly because I seem to have trouble thinking up stories on my own- I always over think things…).
Happy Birthday, thanks for the comic, and good luck in the future!
A belated happy birthday to you :> But I also have a question!
What does bugbear courtship generally entail? They’re so in tune with creepiness in general, I’m actually curious how one might go about wooing another.
Thanks for all your hard work on comics thus far <3
Kory: If you were to self-insert yourself into Skin Deep, what species or creature would you make yourself? And what would your look and style be?
Question: It was mentioned that many bands/musicians are creatures that exist in the comic, could you tell us a few of them (what band/musician, creature(s), etc.)?
I’m curious about what kinds of cat type people there are, do you have any Yule Cats or other more unknown types?
You have characters from Wonderland. Are there any from Narnia?
I FINALLY FOUND IT. I first read your comic a couple years ago, when the last page was Swiftrunner finding Michelle in Bloodcarver’s cave…Long story short, I couldn’t find it again until today! I read THE WHOLE THING OMFG. I love it so much! Your art and style have really developed through the comic and it’s super cool to me! Skin Deep is AWESOME.

Was the mouse-over text a quote from Tom Servo? Awesome!
I dare say it was! :D
