Writer Joseph Keatinge (Glory) and artist Wook Jin Clark (Adventure Time: The Flip Side) have teamed up with colorist Tamra Bonvillain, letterer Ariana Maher, designer Rich Tommaso, and culinary consultant Ari Bouzari (Ingredient: Unveiling the Essential Elements of Food) for a delectable new adventure. Launching this May 2018, Keatinge and Clark are bringing Flavor to the Image Comics menu.
Within a strange walled city, chefs are the ultimate celebrity and food is the most valued commodity. But underage, unlicensed chef Xoo is about to uncover a mystery that just might bring everything crumbling down. Prepare your palate for the high-stakes competition of The Hunger Games, steeped in the enticingly lush world-building of Hayao Miyazaki.
“Flavor is a book with a lot of ingredients; we’re cooking up a comic unlike anything else I’ve collaborated on before,” said Keatinge. “I’ve long desired to work with each and every person on this creative team, and I could not be happier with the results.”
“This book is my dream book with a dream team,” added Clark. “I’m so excited to be a part, and so pumped to share!”
Flavor #1 will be served up on May 16, with the final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers being April 23.
