‘Doughnuts and Doom’ OGN (review)

Written and Ilustrated by Balazs Lorinczi
Published by Top Shelf


Doughnuts and Doom, is a new original graphic novel by Balazs Lorinczi. It is a sweet mute-cute tale that I found quite charming.

There is Elena, a daytime doughnut shop employee/nighttime rock-and-roll artist, and a witch named Margot who sells potions online but struggles to cast actual spells (she gets nervous in front of others).

They first cross paths in a very argumentative manner but later grow to really care about each other.

It’s an endearing comic and I really enjoyed Lorinczi’s illustrations that mixed everyday city life with magical elements in a delightful blend of normal and fantastical.

Plus, it was fun how anything supernatural takes on a bright pink coloration (potions, magic waves, etc.) within the otherwise relaxed blue-and-white artwork. It really makes things, “Pop,” when we witness sorcery.

There is a nice slice-of-life vibe to, Doughnuts and Doom, with Elena and Margot encountering troubles, but things still feel grounded despite all the witchcraft. There aren’t any World-ending disasters to face as opposed to the everyday trials of a gig not getting much of an audience or struggling to get a license (albeit a spellcasting license).

The result is a nice relaxed and fun graphic novel that I would readily recommend.

5 out of 5 stars.
