We're pretty high on comics about cooking and baking here at ComicsAlliance, which means Sam Sykes, Selina Espiritu and Sarah Stern's Brave Chef Brianna is one of our most anticipated new series of the year. Ahead of its release in March, Boom Studios has provided us with an exclusive first look at colored pages from the first issue, as well as the first-ever chalkboard back cover in comics!

The series follows a young woman charged by her father with creating the best restaurant imaginable --- but the only place she can afford to start her business is in the unforgiving Monster City. Can she win over the harpies, goblins, and lizard-men with her burgers and fries? I don't know about you, but those are the sorts of stakes that I'm super into.
