Recipe Comix: Biscuits and Tomato Gravy

"Draw us a recipe." That's the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists earlier this year; each week, 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.

This week's comic is an old family recipe from the Minneapolis-based Gordon McAlpin, proprietor of the webcomic Multiplex. As he tells it, a plate of biscuits with bacon and tomato gravy is the best thing ever. Ever. We're certainly willing to be convinced.

Gordon McAlpin lives in Minneapolis with his cat Punk. In his twenties, he watched over a dozen movies a week. Gordon has written movie reviews, co-hosted a movie podcast, and edited a movie news blog, but now he just writes and draws Multiplex, an online comic about the staff of a movie theater. While he has never worked at a movie theater, he has had several equally terrible jobs.
