Filed under: News — Staff @ 16:04:01

There's nothing like a journey into the big city to test your mettle, so Kid Crazy sets his sights on a distant metropolis. Along the way, he meets a glowing top-hatted robot named Denunzio, who tries to warn him of the dangers of the city, especially the menacing, demanding, and very rude Kilowatt King.

Chances are if you are a longtime Haute Macabre reader, you require no introduction to the charmingly spooky, gothic art of Abigail Larson. Her eerie illustrations, reminiscent of the gorgeously ghoulish story books and fairy tales that little gothling you never actually had on your shelf as a child (thanks, mom), have no doubt haunted you for years–and ever since you discovered her work, you have been frantically, feverishly devouring it to make up for lost time.

YOU MAY EXPECT—given her resume, which includes recipe development for John Sundstrom's Lark: Cooking Against the Grain and serving as chef de cuisine at Café Juanita—Lauren Thompson to write as her first cookbook a locavore manifesto overflowing with gorgeous natural photos and pitch-perfect preparations of coveted seasonal ingredients.

Instead she wrote a comic book—which makes sense once you learn that Thompson has also taught culinary school. Cooking Comics! Simple Skills, Fantastic Food, which arrives December 6, is aimed squarely at the rote beginner, that person eager to learn scratch cooking but intimidated by the whole affair, with its constant French terminology (what, you don't lavish your pan-roasted halibut with a buttery arroser?) and necessary vagueness (cook 5-10 minutes, or until done).

Mom Read It

Filed under: News — Staff @ 16:40:11

Kid Crazy is a kid living in a desert, dying to go on adventures in the dazzling City of Ever. When he encounters a droid named Denunzio, who overhears him wishing he could visit the City, the droid tells him that the king is rude and sour – a real creep, really. Kid Crazy doesn't want to hear it – as soon as Denunzio admits that he can get Kid inside the castle, he's off. They head off in a car made of bread and travel to the castle where, sure enough, the king is rude as all get out. He demands that Kid Crazy sing him a song, but Kid's not having it. He decides it's time the king learned some manners! He tells the king a riddle that brings home how rude he's been, then teaches him the power of one simple word: Please.

‘Kid Crazy and the Kilowatt King' Book Review
I place great value on reading. I have always been an avid reader myself, and now my daughter also loves reading on her own. My son, too, loves listening to his big sister and me read aloud to him. I thus am always on the lookout for new books to share with my kids. When recently offered the chance to review Kid Crazy and the Kilowatt King written by Claudio Sanchez and illustrated by Arthur Mask in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add to my home library. The hardback book currently retails for $24.95 on Amazon.

Coheed and Cambria Frontman Releases Children's Book, Kid Crazy and the Kilowatt King

Filed under: News — Staff @ 14:10:32

Coheed and Cambria have built their entire career around whimsical science-fiction concepts that explore space, love, loss, war, and all things prog. Though the band have gotten considerably brighter in their poppier tendencies and dropped their Amory Wars conceptual universe for last year's The Color Before The Sun, the band still exudes a space rock and sci-fi aesthetic, and fans no doubt expect a return to conceptual storytelling at some point in the future.
