Paprika is living a difficult situation brought on by her father's illness and the complex work situation that awaits her. It's the only kind of business she's not really able to handle: a dinner where being dynamic, kind, and relaxed is just as important as being competent. But there is also another reason why the young and skilled professional is in trouble: she doesn't want to see one of the guests again...

    This issue of Sweet Paprika does so many things new and refreshing. It is invigorating to see such an ensemble cavort so casually. However you start to feel the effects of what you're consuming. There are several emotions at play behind the playful tones in this book. I for one hope Paprika can break out of her rut. For now she seems to be less likely to end up on her back with as much as she has on her plate. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 1, 2021

    With the world fully established in the first issue, Andolfo dives into some further exploration of what makes it tick...the family drama and the background on everything is nice, but. a greater integration between the angel/devil iconography and the contemporary metropolitan drama would make for a far more compelling serial. As it is, Andolfo is working with a fun concept, though. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 2, 2021

    Sweet Paprika #2continues to build on the promise its inaugural issue laid out. While Paprika isnt an angel by any means, I find myself wholeheartedly rooting for the lady to find some way to overcome the emotional burdens she faces. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 31, 2021

    Sweet Paprika remains an incredibly chaotic good time. It's sexual, humorous, and deeply meaningful as Paprika may have the job and the money, but she's subverting her sexuality and ability to connect with men to attain those. In that, Andolfo is exploring an interesting character study many can relate to. Read Full Review
