Voracious Returns for Second Bite


Marksan Naso and Jason Muhr had a lot of fun with Voracious. So much fun in fact that they're returning to Action Lab Danger Zone for a second helping this September in Voracious: Feeding Time. Voracious is the first comic book series by writer Naso and artist Muhr, with colors by Andrei Tabacaru. The current four-issue series will be completed in June.

“VORACIOUS is the perfect example of the types of high quality, innovative comic content that readers can find at Action Lab, and within our more adventurous imprint, Danger Zone,” said Action Lab: Danger Zone Publisher, Jason Martin. “We couldn’t be happier bringing more of Naso and Muhr’s vibrant, dino-fueled culinary exploits to fans, and hope this announcement will get even more eyes on this imaginative series!"

The story follows depressed chef Nate Willner who unexpectedly rekindles his desire to cook after he inherits a time travel suit that takes him to the Cretaceous period. There, Nate ends up eating a dinosaur and gets the idea to open a restaurant in the present that serves ancient meat from the past.

“We are beyond excited to continue our story,” added VORACIOUS writer Markisan Naso. “And we are so very humbled and grateful that retailers and comic book readers gave our strange, little book a chance in a market with so many great comics to choose from. We can’t wait to show readers what we’re cooking up for the second mini-series!”

"The next series gets bigger and crazier, as the scope of the story expands way beyond where most fans were thinking Nate's tale was heading,” said VORACIOUS artist Jason Muhr. “I'm having so much fun drawing this second arc. But every panel of every page is a spoiler for the end of the first mini-series, so we'll just have to keep it under wraps for now!”
VORACIOUS # 4 currently available for preorder from Diamond distribution (Order Code: APR161145 (Regular Cover) Order Code: APR161146 (Variant Cover) and can be ordered through your Local Comics Retailer.
