Enlarge"Draw us a recipe." That's the brief we sent to a dozen of our favorite comic artists earlier this year; each week this summer, we're thrilled to present what they sent back. They're fantastic, beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, informative, and often all of the above — and they prove that a recipe doesn't just have to be words on paper. (Check out all the comics published so far in the archive.)
This week: David Malki !, the be-exclamation-marked creator and author of the comic strip Wondermark, arguably the internet's premier comic created entirely from collaged Victorian-era woodcuts. Here, he shares his father's recipe for green salad, a dish that carries more weight than just lettuce and tomato.
David Malki ! is the creator and author of the comic strip Wondermark, a unique gag strip created entirely from Victorian-era woodcuts. He is a co-editor of the book Machine of Death, a collection of stories about people who know how they will die, and is the Supreme Commander of Publicity & Promotions for TopatoCo, at least the world's third-largest publisher of licensed webcomics merchandise.
