Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Patrick Alan Coleman, of the Portland Mercury, pens one of the oddest cooking/cartooning articles ever when he records his conversations with Achewood creator Chris Onstad as they cook up a big batch of buffalo and yak testicles. Onstad’s characters talk about food a lot, so the strip has apparently attracted a following among the culinary-minded:
“What basically happened was that people who like cooking actually started following the strip.” Onstad says. “I came to Portland in 2008 to do a signing and cooks were coming in with these strips that had obviously been hung up next to their stations because they smelled like fryolator grease and were discolored.”
Furthermore, Onstad has self-published one Achewood cookbook already and is working on a second; the article includes several of his recipes. While Coleman’s enthusiastic descriptions of testicle prep may be wince-inducing for male readers, the article is an entertaining look at the creator and his quirks, and well worth a read.
