Writer Brian Wood (Star Wars, DMZ, The Massive), artist Danijel Zezelj (Northlanders, Loveless), and colorist Dave Stewart (THE WALKING DEAD, Star Wars) will launch a new story arc in their ongoing pop-culture satire series STARVE this February.
Previously in STARVE, Chef Gavin Cruikshank, back from self-imposed exile, found his little foodie television program “Starve” transformed into a gonzo arena sport where chefs slice and dice rare and endangered species for their super-rich patrons. With his personal life as much a shambles as his professional career, Chef Cruikshank worked to repair his relationship with his grown daughter while working to dismantle the monstrosity that Starve had become.
In STARVE #6, Cruikshank shifts his focus, addressing real world themes of food scarcity and class warfare, while taking real steps to getting his personal life back on track.
“In this second ‘season’ of Starve, Chef Gavin Cruikshank is recovering from the trauma of the first season and wondering why, since he’s so successful at reclaiming his spot as a top chef, his personal life such a shambles. But IS he actually successful at rehabilitating his TV show, or is he just being co-opted all over again?” said Wood. “So in this arc he goes from the soundstage to the streets, bringing his ideas of food revolution directly to the people most affected by poverty and food scarcity. It’s a socio-political angle on food that we haven’t touched on yet in the series. Gavin will never lose his caustic sense of humor, but it’s time he gets real. Really real.”
STARVE #6 (Diamond code: DEC150553) hits stores Wednesday, February 17th. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, January 25th.
