Fatter than a speeding bullet, more hungrier than a locomotive, able to eat foot long hoagies
in a single bite. Look! Up in the sky! It's a gyro! It's a kabob! No—It's
After hurling himself across the gulf of time into the real world, Captain
Tacolicious is confronted with the mundane incarnation of himself from our
very own world. He attempts to teach his normal double about the richnes of
superheroism, but unfortunately dressing up like an idiot and beating up
criminals isn't a logical course of action in reality.
After his faithful sidekick Candyman's superpowers go haywire he and Cap
are summoned to the Food Pyramid along with the Food Elementals—mighty
cosmic beings that embody the arbitrary categories of food delineated by
the USDA. Along the way they come into conflict with the mysterious Blood
Chef—a chef who has a mysterious past and too many pouches. Can Candyman
and Cap escape their terrible thrall and return to normal?
Have you ever wondered how Captain Tacolicious got his incredible taco powers
in the first place? Find out for the first time in this richly illustrated volume.
Once, he was just a normal guy, working a normal job. Yeah, his roommate was a
shapeshifting Buddhist monk, but even he spent most of his time playing X-Box,
at least until the all-you-can-eat taco shop opened up.
Soon, our hero is thrust into a world of spandex, sentient Asparagus and he even
fights a giant turtle monster in the third act.
