Today I am going to do some entirely unsolicited bragging about a friend of mine (and by extension a friend of you guys): Gene Ha! If you are not familiar with his work yet, I am going to pause for a little bit while you click on this link, and take a look at his work. You back? Amazing, right? He is one of the best comic book artists in the biz today.
M4P friend Gene Ha will tell you this gift wrap is NOT a space slug, it is a lobster claw…
Of course he has a compelling argument… He bought the Admiral Ackbar bobble-head that was inside for me (yeah!!!), AND he created the wrapping. And as all of Gene’s fans know, Gene has a somewhat warped sense of humor, so a lobster claw wrapping makes perfect sense to him. Calamarian… Red gourmet seafood… Lobster.
Food is best made with friends, and these were a collaboration of several of us. Gene had the great idea of making Wampas based on his Wookie cookies. But since he has been crazy busy running his Kickstarter Campaign, Jedi Master Heidi and I volunteered to figure out how.
In honor of M4P friend Gene Ha’s new Mae Graphic Novel Kickstarter campaign, we are going to feature Gene’s ideas for the next 4 weeks. First up, the M4P exclusive Wookiee Cookies.
Chewie-Chewy… Chewbacca… There is a pun in there some where. Let’s see. “Kids, this is the last time I tell you, finish to Chew back at the table!!”! Hm. That didn’t work quite as well as I had hoped…
Do you what works beautifully though? This recipe. Coconutty, chocolatey goodness all in the shape of a friendly Wookiee. Most definitely one of the yummiest things we have ever featured.
Sometimes, there is something that needs to be discussed outside of the Star Wars universe. M4P’s good friend Gene Ha, the Eisner award-winning comic book artist, has created a new Graphic Novel called Mae. And a Kickstarter campaign started today, so you can all get in the action. I have been fortunate to be working with Gene for the past few months getting the graphic designs ready for the books and the Kickstarter Premiums, and it has been such a pleasure working with his incredible art!
