Review- GEORGE R.R. MARTIN'S SKIN TRADE


GEORGE R.R. MARTIN'S SKIN TRADE (Avatar Press, 2014; Softcover)

Collects Skin Trade #1-4 (cover dates June- November, 2013)

Writers: George R.R. Martin and Daniel Abraham

Artist: Mike Wolfer

Colorist: Digikore Studios

George R.R. Martin is on top of the world these days. I have never read nor seen Game Of Thrones, but it seems like a license to print money. This is an adaptation of his 1989 novella The Skin Trade, and it is one of the most complex werewolf stories that I have read, sort of a werewolf whodunit. I would go into it more but pretty much anything that I say will tip the hand of what will happen.
Junk Food For Thought rating: 3.5 out of 5.
