Meghan Turbitt's wonderfully nutty comic book, #FOODPORN, came in the mail today.
As a retired veteran of the restaurant business, I can say with some authority that the scenes depicted in this comic book happen all the time, but usually in the walk-in or dry goods stock room, not in the main dining area.
Also, wonderful job on the centerfold, and "Please pass the ketchup, I think it's going to rain!"

I bought a copy of Extraordinary Mezzanine by GW Duncanson, a comic book of surrealistic watercolor paintings, pop cultural/cartoon images mashed up with high art. I love this book. It's like you're walking through a museum, and a portrait of a stern Lucy Van Pelt is juxtaposed with a portrait of Frida Kahlo while a man with a chainsaw runs past a lonely Air Jordan in the middle of the room.
