When Image Comics sent out a teaser promoting a new cooking comic with the tagline "A Recipe for Ressurection," we were excited that the innovative comics publisher was considering branching out from their usual genres of sci-fi, dark sci-fi, underwater sci-fi, and Ed Brubaker books. We can't remember the last time, if ever, a major comic book publisher published a cooking comic, but with cooking TV shows doing very well, it makes sense that Image would want to get in on some of that action.
That being said, their recipes don't look all that appetizing. For instance, the recipe for ressurection appears to consist of a turnip, a pair of pliers, and some bloody teeth. Yeechh!
Image should probably look into some of the more traditionally appetizing ways of preparing turnips. Sauteed in butter with some greens and ginger, perhaps, or maybe even a riff on a turnip and leek soup that could use the teeth as some sort of garnish. The plating could also use some work, to be honest. The new comic doesn't come out until May, so Image still has some time to get their act together.
For more on this story, we asked renowned chef and TV host Paula Deen for comment. Paula?
Paula Deen: Well, I think...
You know what, on second thought, maybe it's best if we don't let Paula talk. We wouldn't want her to say anything she might regret. Instead, let's ask Gordon Ramsey:
Gordon Ramsay: Are you fucking kidding me? Would you serve that to a customer?! That's bloody fucking disgusting! Image, you're a bloody disgrace! You call yourself a comics publisher?! You're a piece of shit! I don't know if I can help you! I'm leaving! I hope you fucking die! *walks out*
Five minutes later...
Ramsay: Okay, I'm back. Listen, I think we can turn this thing around. I've given your teaser a complete state of the art culinary overhaul, and I think your customers will find this far more appetizing.
