Hot Dog Taste Test by Lisa Hanawalt

I never heard of this graphic novel but it looks funny and strange.  I'll definitely be reading this soon.

Retail Value:  $22.95  Amazon Price:  $19.42

Goodreads Rating:  3.96 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

The new book from the James Beard Award-winning cartoonist and designer/producer of Netflix’s Bojack Horseman
Lisa Hanawalt's debut graphic novel, My Dirty Dumb Eyes, achieved instant and widespread acclaim: reviews in the New York Times and NPR, Best of Year nods from the Washington Postand USA Today, and praise from comedians like Patton Oswalt and Kristen Schaal. Her designs define the look of the wildly popular Netflix animated series Bojack Horseman. Her culinary-focused comics and illustrated essays in Lucky Peach magazine won her a James Beard Award.
Now, Hot Dog Taste Test collects Hanawalt's devastatingly funny comics, gorgeous art, and screwball lists as she tucks into the pomposities of the foodie subculture. Hanawalt dismantles the notion of breakfast; says goodbye to New York through a street food smorgasbord; shadows chef Wylie Dufresne, samples all-you-can-eat buffets in Vegas; and crafts an eerie comic about being a horse lover yet an avid carnivore.
Hot Dog Taste Test explodes with color, hilarity, charm, and, occasionally, reproductive organs. Lush full-spread paintings of birds getting their silly feet all over a kitchen, a fully imagined hot dog show (think Best in Show but with hot dogs), and a holiday feast gone awry are the creamy icing on this imaginative rainbow-colored cake. But Hanawalt's wit and heart extend far beyond gags--her insightful musings on popular culture, relationships, and the animal in all of us are as keen and funny as her watercolors are exquisite.

Ice Cream Dream Tall Socks

I love these cute socks.  Ice cream socks!  Yes!  Now I want some ice cream...

Let's Ketchup Postcard &
Let's Be Nerds Bookplate

This box is definitely making me hungry for ice cream and candy.  That Nerds bookplate is awesome and I love the "Let's Ketchup" postcard.  

Retail Value for items:  $??

Candy, Candy, Candy, Eraser!!!!

The final items in June's Landfall Freight were some Nerds, a Tootsie Pop, and Bubble gum.  The little strawberry milk carton is an eraser.  :)

My Thoughts:  This was one of my favorite boxes so far from Landfall Freight!  I think I'm going to love 'Hot Dog Taste Test' because it sounds hilarious and I love the artwork.  I love all the 'junk foodie' items included in the box and my favorites were the Ice Cream Dream Socks and the Don't Be Hangry Magnet Set.  I thought this was an awesome box and I look forward to July's box.
