Writer Brian Wood, artist Danijel Zezelj, and colorist Dave Stewart begin the second story arc of Starve this February.
Previously, Chef Gavin Cruikshank returned from self-imposed exile to find his television program “Starve” transformed into a gonzo arena sport where chefs slice and dice rare and endangered species for their super-rich patrons. With Cruikshank’s personal life in shambles, he worked to repair his relationship with his now grown daughter while also attempting to dismantle “Starve.”
In Starve #6, Cruikshank will focus on addressing real world themes of food scarcity and class warfare while continuing to get his personal life back on track.
“In this second ‘season’ of Starve, Chef Gavin Cruikshank is recovering from the trauma of the first season and wondering why, since he’s so successful at reclaiming his spot as a top chef, his personal life such a shambles. But IS he actually successful at rehabilitating his TV show, or is he just being co-opted all over again?” said Wood. “So in this arc he goes from the soundstage to the streets, bringing his ideas of food revolution directly to the people most affected by poverty and food scarcity. It’s a socio-political angle on food that we haven’t touched on yet in the series. Gavin will never lose his caustic sense of humor, but it’s time he gets real. Really real.”
