I've fallen way behind on this series, but it's one of those books that you read just because of how good the art is... at least that's my logic. From Action Lab:
The Patty Cakes brownie empire is up for grabs as baking criminals Poppy and Cassia take on their competitor, Saffron. As detectives Ginger and Anise get closer to uncovering the truth, Poppy’s addiction to her and Cassia’s own brownies may just lead to their own downfall as well! Comic Crusaders reviewer Lead Sharp said “…the target audience will get an appropriate shed load of atmospheric plot lines, sharp characters and a really immersive world.”
Writer James F. Wright has created “Betty and Veronica” and Heathers meets Breaking Bad. The story takes place in a 1960s girls’ junior high. There’s plenty of school-related drama but Wright adds in a pinch more than you would expect with tasteful results.
Artist Jackie Crofts and colorist/letterer Josh Eckert have a distinct art style. Sharp lines make up their character designs, which really fit the retro world of NUTMEG.
NUTMEG VOL. 3 TPB is 96 pages of sweets for $11.99 and available for order through your local comics retailer (Diamond order code:MAY16 0982) for a July 2016 release.
