Le Death in the Afternoon

Were taking out our first Manga this week with Death Note, written by Tsugumi Ohba and art by Takeshi Obata,.  An epic cat and mouse game between a brilliant teen who can easily kill just by writing down a name, and the detective determined to catch the killer. 


  • Vanilla Infused Absinthe
  • Fresh Pineapple juice
  • Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Squid Ink
  • Moet & Champagne

We have done death in the afternoon before, (see the Lock and Key Episode where Todd and Bryan picked the same drink), but this week Q found a variation.  This was taken from a bars menu, so we don't have the exact measurements, so please experiment.  The squid ink is the big change here, making for a nice black cocktail.  

Charlie Chan

In this weeks episode we discuss the first trade paperback of Jessica Jones.  If you were old school, and read it when it first came out like Q, you know it as Alias, if you only heard about it because of the Netflix show, it was released as Jessica Jones:Alias.  Either way, we read and discuss the book, share some cocktails, and discuss the soap opera that comics stories can be.  

Vodka Infused with Black Tea
Ginger Syrup
Lemon Juice
Club Soda


Adam got this recipe from a Private Detective agency themed speak easy.  The actual measurements are still a bit of a mystery, but that may just add to the fun as you investigate this cocktail further. The actually recipe calls for lemon juice, black pepper and clove tinctures, and coconut marmalade as well, but Adam just replaced them with Club soda for his own home version.  


Matt Fraction brings us a new take on Clint Barton - aka the self-made hero Hawkeye. With ex-Young Avenger Kate Bishop by his side, this thriller spans the globe. The stylistic art from David Aja and Javier Pulido brings Matt Fractions globe trotting romp to life.

High West Double Rye
Apple Jack
2 Dashes Cointreau
2 Dashes Amaretto
Lemon juice
Sage Leaves
4 Dashes of Current Bitters

This drink is a little bit of a mystery. Mainly because Todd never gave me the exact measurements.  It looks tasty, I'm not sure how much of what.  But please experiment, and if you find a good ratio, let me know. 

The Amelia Mintz

Monday morning we are please to discuss the 2009 Chew trade paperback: Tasters Choice.  From the minds of John Layman, and Rob Guillory comes a humorous look at police work, chicken prohibition, cannibalism, love, murder, psychic powers, and alien invasions.
