Time for an exciting update for the comic I’ve been working on all year! I’m thrilled to announce that the talented Soleil Ho is joining me as a cowriter on Meal, the insect restaurant romance graphic novel that’ll be published by Iron Circus Comics in 2018!

Soleil’s a pro when it comes to preparing and writing about food, and the book is better for the work she’s putting into it. Can’t wait to show you folks the finished thing next year!

Meal: A new graphic novel in the works!

The news is out today: I am going to be writing and illustrating a new graphic novel to be published by Iron Circus Comics! Here’s the official blurb:

The irrepressible Yarrow McMurray is a woman on a mission: A mission to put bugs in your burgers. Worms in your stir-fry. Maggots in your… muesli?

Sure. Why not.

In short, Yarrow eats bugs. And cooks bugs! And loves bugs. Inspired and driven on her quest by short-tempered guiding force and employer Chanda Flores, she won’t rest until everybody else feels the same way, including her skeptical girlfriend Milani Spence.

Written in the spirit of classic food and cooking manga like Drops of God,Cooking Master Boy and Yakitate!! Japan, Blue Delliquanti, author of the critically acclaimed and Lambda Literary Award-nominated O Human Star, plans to bring Meal to ICC and adventurous readers in 2017!

Keep up with all future updates on this book at mealcomic.com! I can not wait to make headway on this.
