Hot Dog Taste Test

Lisa Hanawalt

Lisa Hanawalt’s debut graphic novel, My Dirty Dumb Eyes, achieved instant and widespread acclaim: reviews in the New York Times and NPR, Best of Year nods from the Washington Post and USA Today, and praise from comedians like Patton Oswalt and Kristen Schaal. Her designs define the look of the wildly popular Netflix animated series Bojack  Horseman. Her  culinary-focused  comics  and  illustrated essays in Lucky Peach magazine won her a James Beard Award.

Now, Hot Dog Taste, collects Hanawalt’s devastatingly funny comics, gorgeous art, and screwball lists  as she tucks into the pomposities of the foodie subculture. Hanawalt dismantles the notion of breakfast; says goodbye to New York through a street food smorgasbord; shadows chef Wylie Dufresne, samples all-you-can-eat buffets in Vegas; and crafts an eerie comic about being a horse lover yet an avid carnivore.

Hot Dog Taste Test explodes with color, hilarity, charm, and, occasionally, reproductive organs.

Lush full-spread paintings of birds getting their silly feet all over a kitchen, a fully imagined hot dog show (think Best in Show but with hot dogs), and a holiday feast gone awry are the creamy icing on this imaginative rainbow-colored cake. But Hanawalt’s wit and heart extend far beyond gags-her insight- ful musings on popular culture, relationships, and the animal in all of us are as keen and funny as her watercolors are exquisite.
