Planet Pasta

Planet Pasta - nicely done story and illustrations by Nicholas Blechman that details a trip to the Barilla factory. Although the his Extra Virgin Suicide graphic is less than stellar, I'm excited to see more from this series.

Also it's commendable that the article addressed the recent controversial comments made by Guido Barilla about gay families not representing the values of Barilla; but many readers felt that the article overall was a Barilla ad and a feeble attempt to apologize for the situation. Regardless of motive, the illustrations are excellent.
