Before he wrote Batman, Wonder Woman, or the Martian Manhunter, writer Steve Orlando collaborated with artist Olivia Pelaez for an all-ages graphic novel about a young boy who discovers the fantastical world where all great cooking ideas come from, and its guardian, the Kitchen Witch. It’s a fantastical adventure combining Scandinavian folklore with raw childhood imagination and emotion. A Manhattan kitchen’s geography becomes a fantasy landscape where hanging pots become floating iron islands and grills become steaming ore fields – a new Narnia garnished with culinary flourishes.
The Kitchen Witch is for every boy who idolizes his father. The night before the opening of his dad’s new restaurant, Kevin sneaks down to the kitchen and enters the fantastic world within its walls. There, the Gremlin Lord has stolen his secret family ingredient. To get it back, Kevin and Lovis, the Kitchen Witch, battle their way through towering mouse beasts, bacteria bandits, and fruit flywaymen. This is the distillation of childhood, where the fantastic still waits around any corner.
