A collection strange and arcane medical images collected as a webcomic.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! For three grueling years, Katie Skelly gathered intelligence in the wilds of online, meticulously documenting a private universe of sass photography, fascist surgery, horny skeletons, yonic portals, thrill-seeking vegetation, and multitudinous wry glances and stammered phrases! Now the fruits of her labor may be readily plucked in the compendium of sexed-up webcomics you've been waiting for all your life!

Praise For…

Skelly’s cartooning is fun, stylish, colorful, and lends itself well to erotic subject matter and situations. Playful at all times and inherently positive in its attitude about all things consensual, these strips are celebratory, and most show that stepping outside one’s comfort zone can often lead to unexpected delights.
— Daily Grindhouse

Katie Skelly has become one of the most distinctive voices on the US alt comics and minicomics scene over the last few years.
— Broken Frontier

I love Katie Skelly's linework, which flows across the page, making her the perfect artist to work on comics with a sexual feel to them.
