Back in 2007, I interviewed Brendan Douglas Jones about his brilliant webcomic "Breakfast of the Gods" -- a totally unauthorized, "Lord of the Rings"-sized epic starring breakfast-cereal mascots.
As I wrote then: "'Breakfast' is a deadpan parody that follows Cap'n Crunch and Tony the Tiger as they battle the evil forces of Count Chocula. It's exhaustively researched -- there are dozens of cameos from throughout breakfast-cereal history. It's also hilarious. It pushes your nostalgia buttons. And it's -- dare I say it? -- kind of moving at times."
Well, Brendan finally finished his epic story. And now he's collected it in print. You can buy the 140-page, full-color "The Complete Breakfast of the Gods" at his website, BreakfastOfTheGods.com. It contains backup stories written by Jones and illustrated by yrs. truly, Bill Mudron, Barry Deutsch, Jonathan Hill, Jon Schnepp and Chris Silla. Highly recommended.
