Review: Voracious: Feeding Time #2
If you’ve been reading Voracious then you’re going to love this issue. If you haven’t been reading Voracious then you are missing out on one of the most underrated comic books of the year with a concept so uniquely interesting that you wonder why it has never been thought of before (but if it had, then there is no way it would have been done as well as Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr are doing it here); a time travelling dinosaur hunting chef, who serves dinosaur steaks.
But what if it wasn’t our past that Nate was returning too? What if his actions were having unintended consequences that he was utterly oblivious too?
At this point, if you’ve been following anything I’ve been writing about the series then it should come as no surprise that I’m a fan – it did land Best Mini-Series or One Shot in my Best Of 2016 list, after all. But with that love of all things Voracious comes a pretty high set of expectations with each subsequent issue that the creators have met effortlessly each time. As ingenious as the concept of time-traveling chef Nate Willner opening a diner using dinosaur meat is, there’s only so far that concept will go before the food goes stale. Voracious: Feeding Time #1 immediately allayed that concern with the introduction of some new characters and a glimpse at the consequences of the first arc.
This issue we’re back with the staff of our favorite diner, and we see… look out of respect for you, the creators, and my own reluctance to divulge spoilers I’m not going recap the issue here. Suffice to say that yet again Naso, Muhr and colourist Andrei Tabacaru have delivered another amazing chapter in a series that continues to amaze me – even more impressive a feat considering how much I expect from the series now.
