The Cereal Killers

Breakfast of the Gods has been around for a few years, and just this January it was, at last, completed!

For those unfamiliar: Breakfast of the Gods is actually a grim tale of war, massacre and betrayal, but made ridiculous because it's all being acted out by famous cereal mascots. The sample image at right portrays Cap'n Crunch with his sword bloodied after battle, while Tony the Tiger with bare teeth mauls the Crunchberry Beast, until Dig'Em resorts to doing away with him by shooting him in the face. The official summary reads:

The tale is set in Cerealia, a land eternally bathed in morning sunlight. But troubled days have come to fair Cerealia in the wake of the mysterious disappearance of the king and his wizard adviser. For the first time a shadow has fallen over the land, a shadow named Chocula. Noble and wise, the old sea captain Horatio M. Crunch has stepped up to lead the fight against Count Chocula’s forces of darkness. What follows is the most important battle of their lives as well as the most important meal of the day.

Apparently the author did run into some legal problems early on, but seems to have overcome the issues and now has published his complete collection at Indy Planet.
