Just because Dame Darcy is busy with music, dollmaking, and being a reality TV star, that doesn't mean she's stopped baking her beloved Meat Cake, and here's a new issue to prove it! In Meat Cake #17, God is revealed to the Faeiry Sisters — so of course they get into a fight over it. Also, Trixxie Roxx stars in "The Horrors of Fame," what Darcy describes as "a punk-rock version of those cheesy 1940s romance novels where the girls are going through hyperdrama all the time" — plus more kee-razy neo-Goth fairy-tale madness from one of comics' true originals!
Meat Cake profiles the romantic Rudolph Valentino, the secret language of flowers, love spells, and spells for mermaid hair. Plus: don't miss the true tale of the magical ball and a kitten left by the faeries in a box of nails, depictions of 16th century folk ballads about the uselessness of everything, as only Dame Darcy can depict. And... sex magic!
