Starve Vol. 2
Brian Wood, writer; Danijel Zezelj, artist; Dave Stewart, colorist
In Vol. 1 celebrity chef Gavin Cruikshank got drawn back into his cooking game show Starve after years of self-imposed exile. In the process he had to face everything he had run away from: his ex-wife, daughter, and the celebrity chef culture he had helped create. At the end of the first collection he was winning the show, had reconnected with his daughter, and been shot by his wife. Two out of three ain't bad, but the surprises come fast in the second collection. Gavin begins by reconciling with his wife. Then he puts his daughter into the show in his place, and begins to make a real change in the food choices for ordinary people by establishing a new clean, fresh version of a fast food chicken franchise. Lots of unexpected choices here, and a surprising happy ending to boot.
