Guest Strip: Eric Colossal

Eric’s webcomic is called Rutabaga: Adventure Chef, and I really love it. It’s about a little chef who likes to cook things with exotic ingredients. It’s a great idea, because in a world where there are cockatrices, wyverns, and death spiders, you’d figure someone would have a recipe for them, right? But no one seems to write about that. Humans eat pretty much anything, once they clean it and cook it. Why not mythical plants and animals? Rutabaga’s adventures are very fun and you should give them a read. Eric even includes recipes for you to try on your own.

I like that Eric packed so many panels of gags into the strip. I’m also indebted to him for helping inspire my comic about Smirkulees’ journal, from our conversation about video game tropes. Thanks, Eric!

    that’s a very bright purple color for raspberry jelly
    Oooh that sounds good, I’m checking Rutabaga out

    The game “Avernum 5” features a series of side-quests that are essentially “bring me some part of some uncommonly tough creature”, each time resulting in it being made into a soup (with full flavor description) that gives you some stat bonus. So there you go, someone else wrote about cooking and eating mythical creatures. 🙂

    One might say he got into a real _jam_ on that adventure, eh?

    Rutabaga sounds like a kinder, gentler version of “Toriko”…

    Cold Fusion – I’m glad you liked it!

    RavenBlack – Aha! Thanks for the tip.

    BMunro – I just looked up Toriko and I think you’re right. I’ve seen the archetype in a chef in One Piece, but hadn’t heard of Toriko before.
