Slither #1 by Kelly Froh
And here I thought these Slithers were going to be something of a straight line in the life of Kelly. Turns out that there are plenty of surprises still to come in issues 2-5, as #6 (the one reviewed first, for anybody whoâ€™s reading this, not looking inside my head and is a bit confused) appears to come directly after #1, at least chronologically. This issue details Kellyâ€™s return to college after about ten years away, her living with two stoners (never, ever rent a house unseen), trying to make friends in Vancouver, a spider with a vendetta, and a few throwaway pages at the end with senior pictures. Itâ€™s always tough to say, when checking out the early work of somebody you like, whether that work is going to be painful, watching them learn as they go. Kelly has the storytelling figured out right off the bat (although the art does get better as she goes) and Iâ€™m really looking forward to filling in the blanks in this series in the coming weeks.
