Fandoms: Narbonic, Skin Horse (Webcomic)
21 Dec 2014
While playing host to the Narbons, Mell gets tracked down by a relative... of sorts. But hers isn't the only unexpected family reunion in store, and soon the whole crew is on a cross-country Narbon-vs.-Narbon chase. Blood may be thicker than water, but are nanites thicker than blood?
For some reason, I didn't move on to Skin Horse after encountering and falling in love with Narbonic two-thirds or so of the way in. Now I may have to change that, because this is at once a totally spectacular post-canon Narbonic adventure and a dropped-in-at-the-deep-end Skin Horse caper, and while I haven't read the latter strip at all, the story is hyperactively madcap enough that it holds up regardless. Also, if I didn't know better, I'd seriously think I'd written this myself, because its style and structure remind me of my own Kim Possible/Narbonic crossover from some years back. (I emphasize that this is a reminds-me-in-a-good-way note, not a criticism or complaint.) Mad science has never been more fun than these characters make it, whether in Shaenon Garrity's hands or those of the present fanwriter.
