In this issue, the town is holding a baking contest, and Strawberry is going to be a judge. Everyone is trying to find ways to get on her good side in order to obtain good marks on their entries. Purple Pie Man decides he must stop Shortcake from judging his pie or he’ll never win. Trouble ensues. The storyline is a bit long for younger audiences. With multiple added subplots, while cute, they are not necessary to the main Purple Pie vs. Strawberry plot, thereby extending the ending. The subplots tie in if the audience intended is older. If it is meant for older audiences, the dialogue should shift to a more mature tone or at least a more complex sentence structure. Right now, it is a little confusing who the writer’s audience is, as it seems to differ from the artist. The piece could work both ways and would actually be fun for adults who enjoy anime and kawaii. Kids would eat it up - literally. The issue just has to be more clear who gets to eat the pie - older or younger audiences. What is clear either way is that the images and ideas swirl you into a confectionery heaven. This comic is not one to miss.
