Life Eaters

An incredible graphic novel about how the Nazis won World War Two – by allying with ancient Norse gods, who turn the Earth into a giant death factory.

It has the kind of dramatic epic action that we expect from modern comics, but also has a lot of philosophical themes, such as the nature of faith.

The Phoenix Pastifico

This place is truly amazing- it’s a pasta shop in Berkeley which supplies pasta to the restaurants – they have about 50 kinds of pasta, flavors like “lemon-leek” and “rose petal” (made with real roses). You order your pasta, and they bring out the sheet, to be cut at whatever thickness you desire.
