Overview

Johnny Boyo could have had it all. Women. Money. Fame. As one of the premiere chefs in the galaxy, Johnny's culinary skills could have made him a star. So with everything he ever dreamed of his for the taking, why would Johnny leave it all behind to become a space trucker? Not even Citrus Watts, the girl he left behind, knows for sure. With the sizzle of life in the kitchen behind him, things were going okay for Johnny. Now after years out of the catering scene, Johnny and his pal Deacon are about to find themselves in water hotter than anything they've ever seen before! Johnny will once again have to pick up the whisk and skillet, but will his eroded skills be enough to get them out of the craziest cook-off in the Universe? And what good is a spatula against space ninjas?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

There's a longstanding tradition of "science fiction" stories that actually belong to other genres and simply have freaky alien names grafted on, from space Westerns to space war stories. Space Iron Chef, though-that's a new one. Stokoe's wittily vulgar debut graphic novel follows former-cook-turned-space trucker Johnny Boyo as he fights off space ninjas, returns to the planet of his ex-girlfriend Citrus Watts, and finally faces a cook-off duel with a pair of alien twins who'll stop at nothing to achieve culinary victory. The SF material is self-consciously inane, and the plot is stream-of-consciousness at best-it's mostly an excuse for a series of nutty set pieces, like one in which Boyo tries a "high risk cooking" adventure, preparing a dish from a "hive-minded" creature that strangles its cooks if its lettuce bed is insufficiently finely shredded. The point of the book is its wall-to-wall silliness; it never quite aims for peaks of hilarity, but it's consistently amusing. Stokoe's line work, a sort of graffiti- and manga-inspired update on Vaughn Bodé's old underground comix, is appropriately lighthearted and loose, but he's as passionate about visual world building as Boyo is about flavor blending-he takes obvious glee in drawing huge, wobbly piles of fantastically detailed technology, bug-eyed monsters and goofy handshakes. (Dec.)
