    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...

    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...

    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. ...

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

    *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...

    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! ...

    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...

    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! ...

    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 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...

    *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...

    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. ...
