Just when we've gotten used to seeing Stinz in one role, the big black centaur stallion goes out and gets a new one. He's an old horse, or friendly persuasion -- he shouldn't be out adventuring, dressed up like a Tartar warrior with a sword. Note: This is also Bosom Enemies #3.

Donna Barr (born 1952) is an American comic book author and cartoonist. She was born in Everett, Washington, the second child in a "pod" of six siblings. Common elements in her work are fantastic human/animal hybrids and German culture. She is best known for two of her series. One is Stinz (about a society of centaur-like people in a setting reminiscent of pre-industrial Germany). Originally published in 1986 as a short story in a hand-bound book, it was then serialized in the Eclipse Comics series "The Dreamery," edited by Lex Nakashima. It was picked up by Albedo creator Steve Gallacci under his Thoughts & Images label, moving on to MU Press and its imprint Aeon Press. It was then self-published under A Fine Line Press. Her other long-running series, The Desert Peach is about Pfirsich Rommel, the fictional homosexual younger brother of Erwin "The Desert Fox" Rommel. Beginning in 1987, it was set in North Africa during World War 2). The first three issues were published by Thoughts & Images . Additional issues were published by Fantagraphics Books, Aeon Press, and then self-published. Other works include Hader and the Colonel, The Barr Girls, and Bosom Enemies. Barr has also recently published a number of novels, including Permanent Party, An Insupportable Light, and Bread and Swans. The last two of these feature Stinz and The Desert Peach, respectively. Some of her later books take advantage of the new print-on-demand technologies. Barr has illustrated several GURPS roleplaying books, including GURPS Ice Age and GURPS Callahan's Crosstime Saloon. Barr also produced illustrations for the Traveller roleplaying books, including Alien Module 8: Darrians, the MegaTraveller Player's manual and several issues of Challenge magazine.Review:
Oh, I've missed Stinz Loewhard. Not read any for a while. He's a centaur and after the war (there's always war in Barr's books) he returned to the valley, married a firebrand that could put up with him/keep him safe, raised children/colts and quietly became a legend. Now we get to see one of his daughter's suitors, someone from outside his village. The boy doesn't know quite what he's getting himself into. Her art is both direct and highly decorative while still organic. Each page seems to have grown from a single panel, the lines edging their way across the page like vines covering a wall. Barr seems like one of those folks who have to draw, it's in their blood, there are stories that have to be put to paper. --Stephan Holland, Page 45
