NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Brooklyn Roasting Company proudly announces the publication of the second edition of their comic book series. The new issue will be available online, in Brooklyn Roasting cafes and on-site at New York Comic Con and The New York Coffee Festival
While the first comic book focuses on The Truth About Coffee, with 24 pages of illustrations detailing all aspects of the coffee plant and history, the second comic book tells the story of coffee's origins with colorful characters. The central piece, "Wake Up and Smell the Co-op!!," follows a superhero, Captain Coffee, as he attains a kind of enlightenment while visiting oppressed farmers in Central America. Full of humor and tongue-and- cheek references to 1970s gender politics, illustrator Andrew Wendel presents a compelling vision of how the current coffee market came to be.
"When Brooklyn Roasting Company's Jim Munson asked me to create a comic book for his company, he may not have realized that he was reviving an old tradition, but I knew I would be 'standing on the shoulders of giants' with this project," says Wendel. "I tried to create something contemporary that would reflect the company's values and appeal to a generation of digital natives while still honoring what came before," Wendel said.
"Brooklyn Roasting Company is a seriously fun coffee company," said Jim Munson, CEO and Founder. "Coffee lovers and comic book enthusiasts alike will find plenty to appreciate in Andrew Wendel's exceptionally well-drawn pages."
