Recipe Comix: Halo-Halo

"Draw us a recipe." That's the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists; each week, we're thrilled to present what they sent back. The resulting works of art are 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 a gorgeously graphic take on the frozen Filipino treat halo halo, which in the hands of Toronto-based art-comic creator Michael Deforge is as much diagrammatic assembly instructions as it is a recipe: pile amazing-tasting things in a cup, top with ice cream, and serve.
