Where as the first volume was like Iron Chef in space, this book forgot about cooking almost entirely, and read more like Harold and Kumar in space...and not in a good way. Deacon is not my favorite character, and the first book succeeded by ignoring him, while this one failed by making him a main character. More cooking next time!

This goes into different territory than the first volume. The strange is amped high, if that were at all possible. The pair, Boyo and Deacon, go on an insane drug binge that lasts an unknown period of time, and wake up to find themselves stranded on a planet. They search for fuel and encounter more than they bargained for.

Less cooking in this one, but it's not any less fun. Stokoe's artwork is in top form, and the same is true for his imagination.

Wonton Soup 2 had absolutely none of the charm and interest of the first volume. Volume 1 was all about sci-fi chef action in space, and as a lover of odd ball comics and cooking, how could I not love it? Volume 2 was pretty much a space version of Harold and Kumar; two guys crash their space ship and get high, with gratuitous space alien sex. What the what happened???

while the first book was at least passably entertaining, this second volume seems a lot less fun and a lot more bitter. Plus the sex bear stuff is pretty disgusting and not in a funny way. Trying to hard to be funny by grossing us out, but falling short and just being nasty instead.

I love Stokoe's insane, detailed art, but this dipped deep into straight madness and never came back. It happened around the sex bear scene, and continued into the revolution inside the main character's stomach lining. Fun stuff, but whoo... out there.

Bad. No improvement over Vol. 1 - in fact, worse. Plus hardly any cooking, and what little there was was really silly.

one of the best artists/writers in comics. fun and silly without being cliche.

Not as good as the first, but still not bad. Drugs that are used to communicate that come from the hind brain of aliens, a sex bear, a crash landing on a planet of clones. You know the usual.

More awesomeness from James Stokoe, sex bear made my somewhat gloomy day.

Clever and well drawn, the cuteness factor is just tolerable enough

Can't wait until my nephews get to an age where I'll feel comfortable sneakily slipping this gross-out weirdo comic into their Christmas gifts.

Meh. What was a fun adventure of an intergalactic Iron Chef, turned into a space Cheech & Chong road trip. Booo.
