Mirka Andolfo’s ‘Sweet Paprika’ #1 Gets A Second Printing
by Olly MacNamee
Given the fanbase for Mirka Andolfo’s Sweet Paprika online it comes as no surprise to me that the first issue of the comic book from Image Comics has already sold out at distributors level. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and so will you if you’re old enough to grab a copy that is. After all, there are first printing still out there ahead of a second printing to be made available on Wednesday 25th August.
“Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Sex and the City, with a pinch of The Devil Wears Prada in the new international hit from the creator behind Unnatural and Mercy.
Paprika is a successful businesswoman, a New Yorker of Italian origin. Job and career consume her, forcing her to neglect her personal needs as well as her friends and family. Her heart is broken from a previous relationship and its consequences, and a rigid upbringing has made her a very introverted person. She wants a romantic relationship, but she doesn’t know what she’s doing. Not like Dill, a naïve and suave delivery boy with an angelic attitude, handsome, and always surrounded by beautiful women falling for him. He doesn’t have a worry in the world, and this makes Paprika very nervous. But he’s the guy who could help her with her feelings (and with…sex).”
