It started out as a quirky idea between a few webcomic aficionados. Then, like many good ideas before it, that moment of quirkiness quickly became an inspiring movement involving many popular comic artists!
That idea is Webcomics:What’s Cooking?,a cookbook which features full-page, food-related comics by over fifty webcomic creators and artists with accompanying recipes to various dishes. The range of included recipes is quite diverse, featuring dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks as well as various beverages. This makes it quite likely that you’d find food to fit any taste bud at any time, in any mood!
That alone already seemed like a great idea. However, what really got everyone involved passionate about it was that this was a not-for-profit project! Proceeds from the cookbook sales are for the benefit of National Food Banks in Canada and the USA. At the time of this writing, these are the wonderful artists involved in this comic cookbook (in no particular order):
Spirited by the notion of not only showcasing their talent but to bring fun recipes to families and help bring hope to the less fortunate as well, these creators have combined thousands of hours of work to make this project a possibility! Furthermore, it features an incredibly diverse array of artistic styles. There is nothing out there quite like it and is a gem of an addition to any comic collection! And it’s a great cookbook too!
