Kim-Joy has created the first-ever baked comic book cover for Sina Grace’s Getting It Together. Fans of The Great British Baking Show have a surprise awaiting in the fourth and final issue of Image Comics’ Getting It Together: a special variant edition of the issue will feature an exclusive cover by former contestant Kim-Joy.
The collaboration between the British baker and the American comic book series came through a chance meeting between series co-creator Sina Grace and Kim-Joy in New York.
“I first got to chatting with Sina at a bar in New York that our friend Jimmy works at — we were both in town for the Comic-Con — and I’m so excited that we’ve gone from our first meeting there to me now doing a baking style cover for his amazing comic,” Kim-Joy said in a statement. “I love that it’s something a bit different from the norm and we’re fusing baking with comics.”
“Getting It Together has been a celebration of all the things I love: music, friendship, messy relationships, fashion… but my love for baking never got a spotlight,” Grace added. “I wanted to do something different and out of the box with this variant, and it was the best trust fall I’ve taken to put Kim-Joy’s immense talents to use in creating a cover with her bakes.”
The limited-edition release is available in the U.S. from Sina Grace’s website, and in the U.K. from British store Traveling Man. Only 250 copies will be available in the U.S., and only 100 in the U.K.
