Cooking stories and sharing recipes is our bread and butter! We may be a small, independent publisher but we have a huge appetite for FOOD THEMED stories and high quality work. We specialize in cooking up creator owned comic books but are also experimenting with other story formats & mediums. Our books come with a "recipe" section that reveals the whole process behind the creation of the book, from conception to completion. We love the fusion of worldbuilding and food and we hope you're hungry for what we are serving up next!
