Every now and then, a comic comes along with a premise that is so fantastic, so pure, that you just have to stop and appreciate it for its simple beauty; so simple and perfect that you can't believe it has never happened before. And friends, Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr's Voracious is one of those books, because Voracious is a book about a chef who uses a time machine to cook dinosaurs.

The series is set to start in February from Action Lab with an oversized first issue, but if you would like to weep at the majesty of a perfect idea, then check out a preview below!

This, of course, raises a whole lot of questions about just what dinosaurs taste like. I mean, I've had alligator before --- I live in the South --- and I feel like that's probably the closest modern equivalent, but I suppose it could just as easily be something more like their evolutionary descendants, the chicken. Either way, I'm thinking it would be best to throw some hot sauce on it and see what happens.
