Flavor #3

Jul 17, 2018

Unlike many other Image titles, Flavor's content is completely suitable for children and offers insight into a unique world. With the unique addition of culinary consultant Ali Bouzari, Keatinge and his team have taken a very different approach to writing comics, which hopefully pays off.

Paper Girls #25

This issue of Paper Girls is action-packed and somewhat climactic. It's still not 1988, but the team answered a lot of questions for us in these last two issues. Despite those answers, there's still no ETA in sight for our 80s babies.
