PORTLAND, Ore. 08/04/2021 — Mirka Andolfo’s highly anticipated Sweet Paprika #2
sizzles with steamy variant covers by Stjepan Šejić, Guillem March, and Andrew Hickinbottom set to catch reader attention this September.
“I’m always thrilled when I see my characters through the eyes of artists I love, and after the amazing variant covers I had on Sweet Paprika #1, it’s so great to have three artists I adore, respect, and who are also friends, like Stjepan, Guillem and Andrew,” said Andolfo. “I think all of them illustrated Paprika with originality, and I am in love with their artworks!”
The highly anticipated Sweet Paprika became an instant bestseller when issue #1 sold out at the distributor level upon release and became the highest launch to date of any of Andolfo’s creator-owned series. Orders on the title exceed those of the much buzzed about Mercy #1 and Unnatural #1 and the 12-issue series is planned as part of a cross-media project alongside animation from Grey Ladder Productions, Arancia Studio, and Wild Sheep Content, with Director Gabriele Pennacchioli (Emmy Award winner in 2019 for Love, Death & Robots).
In Sweet Paprika #2, Paprika finds herself in a difficult situation when her father’s illness and the complex work situation that awaits her both compete for her attention. And the only kind of business she’s not really able to handle: a dinner where being dynamic, kind, and relaxed is just as important as being competent. But there is also another reason why the young and skilled professional is in trouble: she doesn’t want to see one of the guests again…
Sweet Paprika is perhaps best described as Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Sex and the City, with a pinch of The Devil Wears Prada and provides readers with a sultry, romantic romp.
Mirka Andolfo’s Sweet Paprika #1, second printing (Diamond Code MAY210023) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, August 25.
