Corey Lewis's 'Sun Bakery' Delivers A One-Man 'Shonen Jump'
Corey Lewis's 'Sun Bakery' Delivers A One-Man 'Shonen Jump'
When Sun Bakery was announced a few weeks ago, it was described as a "one-man Shonen Jump" --- an anthology title inspired by the manga that brought the world Dragon Ball and One Piece. That is, to say the least, a pretty tall order, but in a medium that has always thrived on big ideas and bold execution, it's one that's welcome. So really, when Corey Lewis says that he's going to write and draw a bimonthly anthology series featuring three all-new stories in every issue, you sort of have to just sit back and watch that happen, and hope that it all works out for the best. The first issue won't be hitting shelves until next month, but thanks to a review copy provided by Press Gang, we don't have to just hope any more. While the Shonen Jump comparison might be shooting a little high, Sun Bakery delivers on its promise with three of the most energetic, entertaining, action-packed and unexpected stories of the year.

I don't want to call it a comeback, but Corey Lewis is set to have a pretty interesting year. Not only is he providing art for IDW's GI Joe: Deviations, in which in which he's given Cobra Commander the most sinister redesign in years, but today, Alternative Comics launched its new Press Gang imprint by announcing Sun Bakery, a bimonthly anthology series from Lewis that they're describing as a "one-man Shonen Jump," debuting in April.
