Solomon E Returns to Gorge on “Devil’s Food” from Expansion Fan

Welcome fools! Err… “dear readers” 😉

First things first, yes, it is I, Solomon Evil a.k.a Solomon E, master of the malevolent side of size! I have returned yet again from the Ghost Head Nebula. But it will be a different type of blog takeover this year. Due to Solomon G’s recent tragedy, I shall produce a pair of Halloween-themed reviews and then something special on Halloween. Afterward, I shall peacefully return to the icy planet which is my prison. There will be no conflict in 2021 between Solomon G and myself, because even Solomon E follows a code.

For those ignorant dolts unfamiliar with my majestic personage, know that I am a lover of vore and crush and the Halloween season as seen through the prism of size fetish! Unlike SolomonG, I abhor maple donuts, but do share his affinity for Space Godzilla. (Psst! Space Godzilla, hit me up next time you’re in town. We can watch Condorman together!)

This piece is entitled “Elle” and was created by French artist Gustav-Adolf Mossa in 1905. Click here to learn more about the artist and click here for a higher-resolution rendition.

My time in exile is spent sharpening my prowess in demonology, with help from the Lesser Key of Solomon grimoire, and studying various art pieces which focus on the macabre, like the ones above and below. They portray monstrous beings effortlessly dominating helpless mortals.

During the past two years, I have deigned to share with you unworthy readers my opinion on CGI comics from Redfired0g, examining his “Campfire Stories,” videos from Lovely Lilith, such as her “Witch’s Brew,” as well as movies such as “Bride of Frankenstein” and “Food of the Gods II.”

Continually seeking undiscovered dark tales, I often unearth lost gems. For example, I could throw out a recommendation to fans of the Golden Age of comic books. Those fans should check out “The Weirdest Corpse of All Time!” from issue #2 of “This Magazine is Haunted,” dated December 1951. Of note, Fawcett Comics published This Magazine is Haunted before the Comics Code Authority (CCA) was created. As such, it was not bound by the restrictive requirements and this story ends in a more gruesome fashion than the milquetoast comics produced in the CCA era.

This panel from The Weirdest Corpse of All Time!, and the entire comic itself, can be found at this link.

However, that’s not the topic of today’s post. Today’s post breaks new ground by being the first to cover a work from Expansion Fan. Sure, previous posts have covered comics from other sites run by InterWeb Comics such as Giantess Fan, Muscle Fan, and Shrink Fan, but this is the first look at something from Expansion Fan.

Expansion Fan’s raison d’être, its reason for being, is breast expansion. However, they do cover other topics such as butt expansion and giantess growth. For more about their purpose, check out the following snippet taken from the “About Us” page:

“Devil’s Food” is a 15-page (not counting the cover or ads at the end) one-shot released on March 7th, 2020. It was drawn by Emmanuel Xerx Javier and written by J. Faraday. Emmanuel Xerx Javier also drew the “Helium X” and “Thar She Blows!” series at Expansion Fan, plus “The Crystal of Size” at Shrink Fan, as well as “Rescue G-T-S” and the upcoming “Professor When: The Bathtub Invasion” for Giantess Fan. As far as I can tell, J. Faraday has only written for Expansion Fan. Faraday wrote other weight-gain comics there like “False Advertising,” “Lost Tales of Adiposia,” and “Soaking Up Sun.”

The plot of Devil’s Food is centered on a young bespectacled brunette, named Meridith, who summons the demon “Glutina.” Meridith desperately seeks the romantic attention of a blonde named Alexis. Meridith learns that Alexis likes plump girls, which causes Meridith to call for supernatural help. Accordingly, Glutina provides Meridith with a magical devil’s food cake which instantly packs on many pounds after a single slice!

Initially, Meridith’s plan works rather well:

However, Glutina intervenes and the happy situation rapidly deteriorates as force feeding and a quest for continual expansion results in a … let’s just call it a “negative outcome.”

This is a somewhat difficult story to discuss because it is so simple. There are no twists and the conflict is such that once things are put into motion the humans are powerless to stop or even slow down the progression. One character weakly protests her downfall, but that was the extent of resistance. Using the word “conflict” feels overly charitable to be honest.

That’s not to say that dark endings are not entertaining, but this would have benefited from more tension. Give the protagonist a fighting chance, even if in the end they are defeated.

Regarding the art, it was good. Emmanuel Xerx Javier has a talent for depicting expressive faces which show a range of emotion. However, given the theme of excessive weight gain, only those who like extremely obese women will find the main character appealing.

Overall, I give Devil’s Food three hungry devils out of five and recommend it only to fans of building-bursting weight gain.

That is it for now, Thursday’s review will focus on some manga created by Junji Ito. Until then, I leave you with this question. What would happen if a young man was growing so much that even death itself couldn’t stop his development? Find out the answer next time!
