    Bizarre and rather familiar, having read other culinary graphic novel series (from manga to the more recent Space Battle Lunchtime). Nothing really stood out to me, character wise or drawing style, which often wasn?t very flattering to the former. The cutsey ice-cream bar didn?t se...

    I'm really into culinary graphic novels now, I guess. This was lovely - a richly drawn fantasy setting full of intrigue, some great characters (with one of the best dog companions ever), and some great art. This feels a lot like the Ba Sing Se arc of The Last Airbender but with food in...

    Check out my review over at Word of the Nerd ...

    I know I say this a lot, but Flavor is unlike any of the other graphic novel's that I've read lately. Not only is the art style quirky and cute, but the story is as well, though it does harbour something dark just out of reach. From the first page, I couldn't wait to see what I was get...

    I liked it fine. Good colors, hints of interesting world building and something ominous. Didn't enthrall me, but entertaining enough. ...

    *2.5 Stars* I was provided an ARC by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I wanted to love this but couldn't. I found it confusing and strange but not in a good way? I honestly wouldn't be able to summarize it right now. It felt kind of messy in every way...

    A deliciously illustrated story of social strata, prejudices and taking risks. It is also about food, family and giving people a chance. Brownie points: It's a dystopian setting; what could be behind those walls? The illustration style is one of my favorites(and half the reason for ...

    A book I actually started re-reading, but only to see if I'd missed something I hadn't. But no. In a world of underground cooking contests, a boy who is in the academy to be a top chef becomes a girl who isn't, but is running an unlicensed creperie instead. Meanwhile there's a dog that...

    Flavor combines a food comic with a hunger games like dystopian world where there is something lurking outside the community's grounds, and only a select few will ever know of said things existence. A young girl cooks in her family's restaurant, while she is not trained, or licensed, ...

    This book was an enjoyable fantasy about a city with cutthroat culinary traditions, but a lot of the fun is dampened by the fact that hardly anything of it is explained. Xoo is a trained but not certified chef, and Anant is a novice chef who is also the son of the city's Lord - both li...

    This is an intriguing setup to a series where being a chef is a valued profession and there is something sinister behind a cooking contest. It was around 3.5 stars for me because while the mystery is interesting and I like the focus on food, there's a few things I wanted to be furth...

    Interesting worldbuilding. A vaguely fantastical city where cooking without a license is illegal hosts a massive cooking competition, and two young people -- a girl struggling to run her parents' restaurant after they both suffered an unspecified accident and a boy who attends an exclu...

    *I received this book as an eARC from Image Comics via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review* The world in this book is so different than any I've seen before. It's a fantasy setting where the culinary arts are the center of everything. Chefs must be registered. There's a fancy...

    3 1/2 stars I love the art more than the story to be honest, though the story has grabbed me--an illegal chef (why is she illegal?) and her sidekick dog who seems to be more than just a dog, down on their luck, with an uncle, newly into town, determined to help, though whose "help" ...

    Delightfully hectic hero?s journey with coming-of-age struggles, elite cooking schools, underground competitive cooking, a city-wide tournament, an ominous mountain spirit with an appetite, and a very well read dog named Buster. The most charming part of reading Flavor was protagonis...

    A young crępe chef (!!!) enters a major competition despite not coming from a privileged background. I hadn't read a culinary-themed comic before but I trust Joe because Glory and Shutter are two of my faavorite reads. This volume focuses on world building and setting things up for wh...

    Good beginning. The characters are compelling and complex. There is an unknown evil lurking behind the city's walls. I'm very interested in the mysterious friendship between the two main characters and how those lives are going to intersect. I'd also like to get more background informa...

    Asi jsem v poslední dob? ?etl a? moc prvních díl? anebo jsem p?ejedený komiks? o jídle. Tak jako tak mi tenhle zvlá?tní sv?t, kde je va?ení a jídlo na prvním míst? a kde se za zdí m?sta schovávají temná tajemství, a? tak neu?aroval. Kresba p?íjemná a v n...

    I really enjoyed this! It was a fun concept and I can't wait to see how everything ties together!! ...

    Thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC! A wacky food fantasy, this graphic novel is just what I needed! I loved it! I can't wait until the next volume comes out! ...

    Great introduction to a new world of culinary delight, class divide, and a dash of intrigue. I love the art style as well. Looking forward to Vol 2! ...

    DPL hoopla ...

    I wanted to love this. I love dogs and I've got a thing for illustrated food (I really love it!), this just didn't have enough of it for me. ...

    This is a solid start to a series. It's like a culinary show mixed with Attack on Titans vibes? I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. ...

    Now this is a comic I can get behind. Celebrity chefs, cooking academy shenanigans, and cook-offs instead of fighting? YES PLEASE MORE PLEASE. ...

    I know I say this a lot, but Flavor is unlike any of the other graphic novel's that I've read lately. Not only is the art style quirky and cute, but the story is as well, though it does harbour something dark just out of reach. From the first page, I couldn't wait to see what I was get...

    I liked it fine. Good colors, hints of interesting world building and something ominous. Didn't enthrall me, but entertaining enough. ...

    *2.5 Stars* I was provided an ARC by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I wanted to love this but couldn't. I found it confusing and strange but not in a good way? I honestly wouldn't be able to summarize it right now. It felt kind of messy in every way...

    A deliciously illustrated story of social strata, prejudices and taking risks. It is also about food, family and giving people a chance. Brownie points: It's a dystopian setting; what could be behind those walls? The illustration style is one of my favorites(and half the reason for ...

    A book I actually started re-reading, but only to see if I'd missed something I hadn't. But no. In a world of underground cooking contests, a boy who is in the academy to be a top chef becomes a girl who isn't, but is running an unlicensed creperie instead. Meanwhile there's a dog that...

    Flavor combines a food comic with a hunger games like dystopian world where there is something lurking outside the community's grounds, and only a select few will ever know of said things existence. A young girl cooks in her family's restaurant, while she is not trained, or licensed, ...

    This book was an enjoyable fantasy about a city with cutthroat culinary traditions, but a lot of the fun is dampened by the fact that hardly anything of it is explained. Xoo is a trained but not certified chef, and Anant is a novice chef who is also the son of the city's Lord - both li...

    This is an intriguing setup to a series where being a chef is a valued profession and there is something sinister behind a cooking contest. It was around 3.5 stars for me because while the mystery is interesting and I like the focus on food, there's a few things I wanted to be furth...

    Interesting worldbuilding. A vaguely fantastical city where cooking without a license is illegal hosts a massive cooking competition, and two young people -- a girl struggling to run her parents' restaurant after they both suffered an unspecified accident and a boy who attends an exclu...

    *I received this book as an eARC from Image Comics via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review* The world in this book is so different than any I've seen before. It's a fantasy setting where the culinary arts are the center of everything. Chefs must be registered. There's a fancy...

    3 1/2 stars I love the art more than the story to be honest, though the story has grabbed me--an illegal chef (why is she illegal?) and her sidekick dog who seems to be more than just a dog, down on their luck, with an uncle, newly into town, determined to help, though whose "help" ...

    This book was an enjoyable fantasy about a city with cutthroat culinary traditions, but a lot of the fun is dampened by the fact that hardly anything of it is explained. Xoo is a trained but not certified chef, and Anant is a novice chef who is also the son of the city's Lord - both li...

    Bizarre and rather familiar, having read other culinary graphic novel series (from manga to the more recent Space Battle Lunchtime). Nothing really stood out to me, character wise or drawing style, which often wasn?t very flattering to the former. The cutsey ice-cream bar didn?t se...

    I'm really into culinary graphic novels now, I guess. This was lovely - a richly drawn fantasy setting full of intrigue, some great characters (with one of the best dog companions ever), and some great art. This feels a lot like the Ba Sing Se arc of The Last Airbender but with food in...

    I know I say this a lot, but Flavor is unlike any of the other graphic novel's that I've read lately. Not only is the art style quirky and cute, but the story is as well, though it does harbour something dark just out of reach. From the first page, I couldn't wait to see what I was get...

    This is an intriguing setup to a series where being a chef is a valued profession and there is something sinister behind a cooking contest. It was around 3.5 stars for me because while the mystery is interesting and I like the focus on food, there's a few things I wanted to be furth...

    This is a solid start to a series. It's like a culinary show mixed with Attack on Titans vibes? I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. ...

    Now this is a comic I can get behind. Celebrity chefs, cooking academy shenanigans, and cook-offs instead of fighting? YES PLEASE MORE PLEASE. ...

    This is a cute book with lots of lottle flairs that make me want to read more. I love cooking and hope we see more of the characters cook soon! ...

    cute art. i like the story enough to follow it, but i wouldn't call it a stellar read by any means lol. just fun. ...

    Eh, not my favorite food comic. It takes too long for anything to get going, and I don't like the characters. ...

    I know I say this a lot, but Flavor is unlike any of the other graphic novel's that I've read lately. Not only is the art style quirky and cute, but the story is as well, though it does harbour something dark just out of reach. From the first page, I couldn't wait to see what I was get...

    I liked it fine. Good colors, hints of interesting world building and something ominous. Didn't enthrall me, but entertaining enough. ...

    *2.5 Stars* I was provided an ARC by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I wanted to love this but couldn't. I found it confusing and strange but not in a good way? I honestly wouldn't be able to summarize it right now. It felt kind of messy in every way...

    A deliciously illustrated story of social strata, prejudices and taking risks. It is also about food, family and giving people a chance. Brownie points: It's a dystopian setting; what could be behind those walls? The illustration style is one of my favorites(and half the reason for ...

    A book I actually started re-reading, but only to see if I'd missed something I hadn't. But no. In a world of underground cooking contests, a boy who is in the academy to be a top chef becomes a girl who isn't, but is running an unlicensed creperie instead. Meanwhile there's a dog that...

    Flavor combines a food comic with a hunger games like dystopian world where there is something lurking outside the community's grounds, and only a select few will ever know of said things existence. A young girl cooks in her family's restaurant, while she is not trained, or licensed, ...

    This book was an enjoyable fantasy about a city with cutthroat culinary traditions, but a lot of the fun is dampened by the fact that hardly anything of it is explained. Xoo is a trained but not certified chef, and Anant is a novice chef who is also the son of the city's Lord - both li...

    This is an intriguing setup to a series where being a chef is a valued profession and there is something sinister behind a cooking contest. It was around 3.5 stars for me because while the mystery is interesting and I like the focus on food, there's a few things I wanted to be furth...

    Interesting worldbuilding. A vaguely fantastical city where cooking without a license is illegal hosts a massive cooking competition, and two young people -- a girl struggling to run her parents' restaurant after they both suffered an unspecified accident and a boy who attends an exclu...

    *I received this book as an eARC from Image Comics via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review* The world in this book is so different than any I've seen before. It's a fantasy setting where the culinary arts are the center of everything. Chefs must be registered. There's a fancy...

    3 1/2 stars I love the art more than the story to be honest, though the story has grabbed me--an illegal chef (why is she illegal?) and her sidekick dog who seems to be more than just a dog, down on their luck, with an uncle, newly into town, determined to help, though whose "help" ...

    Delightfully hectic hero?s journey with coming-of-age struggles, elite cooking schools, underground competitive cooking, a city-wide tournament, an ominous mountain spirit with an appetite, and a very well read dog named Buster. The most charming part of reading Flavor was protagonis...

    Bizarre and rather familiar, having read other culinary graphic novel series (from manga to the more recent Space Battle Lunchtime). Nothing really stood out to me, character wise or drawing style, which often wasn?t very flattering to the former. The cutsey ice-cream bar didn?t se...

    Great introduction to a new world of culinary delight, class divide, and a dash of intrigue. I love the art style as well. Looking forward to Vol 2! ...

    DPL hoopla ...

    I wanted to love this. I love dogs and I've got a thing for illustrated food (I really love it!), this just didn't have enough of it for me. ...

    This is a solid start to a series. It's like a culinary show mixed with Attack on Titans vibes? I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. ...

    Now this is a comic I can get behind. Celebrity chefs, cooking academy shenanigans, and cook-offs instead of fighting? YES PLEASE MORE PLEASE. ...

    This is a cute book with lots of lottle flairs that make me want to read more. I love cooking and hope we see more of the characters cook soon! ...

    cute art. i like the story enough to follow it, but i wouldn't call it a stellar read by any means lol. just fun. ...
