Brave Chef Brianna #1-4

From fantasy author Sam Sykes (Aeons’ Gate) comes a story about budding chef Brianna Jakobsson, who’s trying to impress her father but whose best—and only—customers are monsters. Brianna has big dreams of starting her own restaurant. When her ailing father, a celebrity restaurant magnate, poses a challenge to his only daughter and 15 sons, she sets out to create the best restaurant around! Thing is, the only city she can afford to set up shop in is Monster City.

Strange Fruit

During the Great Flood of 1927 in Chatterlee, Mississippi, the River is rising as fast as the racial and social tensions in town. But when an otherworldly being falls from the sky and challenges everything these divided people know, it changes things . . . forever.

This was one of those books that I really had no idea of what to expect, even a handful of pages in. The combination of actual events and fiction that we see within is pretty intriguing though. Whether you know of the historical component, the fictional side of Strange Fruit is what will naturally draw you in.

A good amount of what we see in this title is very likely accurate to things that really would have occurred...

Godshaper #1

Written by Eisner Award-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (The Spire, X-Men Legacy) and illustrated by breakout talent Jonas Goonface, Godshaper introduces a vast world where there’s a god for every person and a person for every god…though for Ennay, unfortunately exceptions may apply. People like him are Godshapers, godless social pariahs with the ability to mold and shape the gods of others. Paired with Bud, an off-kilter but affectionate god without a human, the two travel from town to town looking for shelter, a hot meal, and the next paying rock ‘n’ roll gig.

When it comes to originality in anything from comics to movies, we just don’t see a whole lot of them. At least, not a lot that strongly stand out as something truly unique...
