Meet the chefs of the hit show Space Battle Lunchtime! Peony, the only contestant from Earth (and the only one who's never heard of the show before!), is having a bit of trouble with her ingredient-which comes from a planet she didn't even know existed. (Also: What is Moon Butter???) But it's the other chefs she'll need to watch out for-they'll stop at nothing to win.

    Funnier than the first issue with a lot of cooking action that's quite exciting. If you like cooking shows, science fiction for all ages, or all of those combined, this is can't miss comics. It blows away any cooking show you've seen on TV. Read Full Review

    To conclude, I loved this issue. In particular my favorite part of the was when Natalie started telling the story of Peony off camera. It was a terribly fun deviation. The art, writing, lettering, and paneling were excellent. So much so that I am going down to Mile High Comics and adding Space Battle Lunchtime to my pull list. I suggest you all do the same. 4.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    I really like this comic. Our second outing with Peony and her fellow weird space-chef contestants is surprisingly action-packed, while keeping its cute-yet-cool Cartoon Network vibe. This allusion is especially apt now that I've seen several episodes of Adventure Time, a show ostensibly for kids but exhibiting astonishing sophistication without resorting to obnoxious irony. It's this innocence that makes Space Battle Lunchtime and others like it really stand out among the herd of alternative comics available today, and provides us with a comic that is actually fun to read. I can't wait for Issue Three! Read Full Review

    I really hope Peony escapes becoming a bland character surrounded by a far more interesting universe. She has moments when there seems to be something burning just beneath the surface of her placid demeanor. Notably, Peony clearly hates being underestimated. However, she typically occupies space while things happen around her. I know the technique has fallen out of favor in recent years, but I think Space Battle Lunchtime would benefit from a little inner monologue. Peony is so inaccessible to us it leaves her buried under her fun, creative, and constantly active surroundings. Read Full Review
