NUTMEG is a coming-of-age culinary crime comic published by Action Lab Entertainment, which originally debuted in April 2015. From creators James F. Wright and Jackie Crofts, the story is about a pair of junior high school girls, Poppy Pepper and Cassia Caraway, who get in way over their heads when they concoct batches of super addictive brownies. When the girls prank a pompous rival, they find themselves building a criminal empire with their irresistible brownies. Walking a line between Mean Girls meets Breaking Bad, this is a book primarily aimed at readers aged 11 and up.
