Critically-acclaimed STARVE is back for a second season! Chef Gavin Cruikshank shifts his focus from the soundstage to the streets, addressing real world themes of food scarcity and class warfare.  Smart, subversive, and darkly comic, STARVE is an instant cult classic.

    Starve #6 kicks-off a good opening of the new story arc. I love how this issue teaches something in treating the soon-to-be-eaten species with dignity by illustrating clearly that kind of culinary method of snuffing out its life. And, the cliffhanger is basically a great transitional way of getting readers and fans more invested in reading this dark, riveting and contrast critique that is still full of relevance in reminding ourselves what we are dealing with, and the juiciness of the food we are definitely eating. Brian Wood continues his social activism and awareness by reminding the readers that there is still hope of changing the current status quo in the guise of culinary reality television. The art department led by Zezelj remains highly consistent in its respective responsibilities. I can't barely wait how this storyline will go to out for this prima donna chef. Read Full Review

    This latest installment of Starve reminds its readers why the comic is so strong, despite being wrapped in a premise that is a bit esoteric to the core audience that the medium caters to. Now, this is not the first series to do this, but it is one that executes and elevates the material. Those just now learning about this Image title are in luck because they can just pick up the first trade and this issue. Current readers/fans will be pleased with the fresh direction that the creative team is taking with the plot. Issue six is a necessary ingredient toStarve. Read Full Review

    Starve number six is definitely a pause for breath; Brian Wood is laying down the primer for the next arc. We are bearing witness to the rebirth of Gavin brought on by the events of the initial arc. Once devoid of purpose past survival and self-preservation, Gavin has vowed to become the symbol of insurrection. It may not be the most exciting episode of Starve so far, but the promise it shows us of what's to come certainly is. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Feb 19, 2016

    “Starve” is a series that caught my eye initially for the bizarrely incongruous mishmash of genres it presents. Trashy pop-culture cooking show meets cutting social commentary meets dystopian near-future propaganda meets familial drama. Like a haute cuisine dish, there are a lot of ingredients in the mix here that you might not think work well together. But, for some reason, the distinctive blend of flavours had me hooked throughout the first arc. Issue #6 feels a little less flavoursome so far, lacking the focus and drive that characterised its predecessors, but there's still more than enough going on here to make this a tasty entre for Wood and Zezelj's second serving.
