BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at ZAWA + THE BELLY OF THE BEAST #2, the next issue of the brand new series from GLAAD Award-winning and Eisner Award-nominated cartoonist Micahel Dialynas (Wynd, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). ZAWA + THE BELLY OF THE BEAST is a charmingly macabre eco-friendly fable about nature, greed, and good food shared with better friends, available December 2023.

When Zawa is hangry, she’s a force to behold! While the kids debate over how things unfolded and how they should handle the upcoming food festival, Zawa makes a mess, one that Bandit won’t be happy about. Meanwhile, the Mayor is enraged at Zawa’s escape, getting his private guards involved…

ZAWA + THE BELLY OF THE BEAST #2 features a main cover by Michael Dialynas with variants by fan-favorite artists Morgan Beem (Eat the Rich), Sweeney Boo (Eat, and Love Yourself), and Jenny Frison (Red Sonja).
