Sun Bakery #2 Review

A Different Flavor

The self-proclaimed comic anthology magazine Sun Bakery is claiming a space of its own in the world of comics. It is a collection of ongoing stories; more than one in each issue. It has a bold voice even as it emulates other styles and older stories. Most importantly it has an unabashed attitude that is genuine and refreshing. If you’re not on board with this, fine, then Sun Bakery is not for you, so OK, move on.

From the publisher:

“‘DREAM SKILLS,’ Part Two AREM’s intergalactic Instagram quest continues as she finds herself in danger. In ‘DREAM SKILLS,’ Xasha & Puff face the Rock Lord, barista gatekeeper of Wi-Fi. BAT RIDER’s mysterious, bloodletting girlfriend reveals herself in the ‘90s throwback short comic “BLOODSHED.” All in SUN BAKERY #2, the comics anthology magazine by Corey Lewis Reyyy.”

It doesn’t break new ground, exactly, and lacks a certain cohesiveness, but it does deliver on an ambitious creative level. I’m all for creators who are willing to push the envelope and set their own style and I think Corey Lewis has managed to do just that. I would recommend this only for a reader who is in the mood for something clever. Consider it a palate cleanser between meals of super heroics and mayhem.
