Hosted by Matt Lune

Welcome to Shelfdust Presents, the official podcast of Shelfdust, hosted by Matt Lune! Each week we invite a special guest to bring in any comic they want to talk about – and this week Matt’s guest is comic book artist Ro Stein!

For this week’s episode we asked Ro to pick any comic they wanted to talk about, and they went with Restaurant To Another World Vol 1 by Junpei Inuzuka and Takaaki Kugatsu!

By all appearances, Western Restaurant Nekoya is a normal restaurant serving normal people—but unbeknownst to the regulars, it also attracts an alternative clientele. Every Saturday, all manner of fantastical beings come to dine, and what is familiar fare to humans can be downright exotic for visitors from beyond. To these customers, Nekoya is known by a different name: Restaurant to Another World.

READERS BEWARE: Opening this book may lead to uncontrollable drooling and a grumbling belly!
