Food comics are definitely on the rise—between the popularity of Jon Layman’s and Rob Guillory’s Chew and the upcoming Get Jiro! comic from Anthony Bourdain, foodie and comic fandom are starting to come together—but they’re still lacking a crucial element: actual food. Read all you want, you won’t be any less hungry.
Amanda Cohen and Ryan Dunlavey are looking to change that. Amanda Cohen is no stranger to the food scene, as the chef and owner of Dirt Candy in New York City. And Ryan Dunlavey is no stranger to comics, particularly of a nonfiction bent, as the creator of Action Philosophers and Comic Book Comics. Together, they’re preparing to serve up a delicious dish in the form of a comic—a comic book cookbook.
The book isn’t due until 2012, but you can sample a little taste over at Comics Alliance.
