Recipe Comix: Orange Foods

"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.

Here, she sings the praises of orange foods — everything from roasted sweet potatoes to the undeniably orange Dorito.
