Corey Lewis’ infectiously fun restaurant defender, Sharknife, will return in the creator’s Sun Bakery anthology this summer.
Last seen in 2012, Sharknife previously appeared in two graphic novels published by Oni Press. An employee of The Guandong Factory, Caesar Hallelujah protects the restaurant from the monsters that live inside its walls by transforming into the heroic Sharknife — much to the delight of the establishment’s customers.
The new story, “Soul of Sharknife,” will begin its run in the anthology in issue #5, which will also feature a new breakdancing story called “Freeze” and more Bat Rider stories.
“With Sun Bakery #5, we’re starting a brand-new arc centering around my main Sharknife character,” said Lewis. “It’s going to be quite unique. Unlike anything currently out there in comics.”
Sun Bakery #5 arrives Aug. 2, while the first Sun Bakery trade paperback arrives Aug. 30.
