"Issue 11" is the 11th issue of the 2017 Steven Universe comic series published by KaBOOM! Studios and the 19th issue overall.


After Steven sees a flier for "A Taste of Beach City," everyone gets inspired to make a dish and enter the competition.[1]


The comic begins with Steven walking into the Big Donut. He looks at the variety of donuts on display but soon realizes that he is unable to settle on a flavor. Noticing his indecisiveness, Sadie offers him a new flavor to try: the pumpkin donut. He praises the creation and asks Lars and Sadie what their 'donut muse' was. In means of an answer, Sadie pulls out a flyer advertising 'The Taste of Beach City', an autumn-themed food contest meant to attract tourists during the off season. She mentions that most things at the contest will be pumpkin-flavored and, upon hearing this, Steven requests a copy of the flier.

  • Sadie mentions that Mayor Dewey made 'The Taste of Beach City' contest to unite the boardwalk businesses and bring tourists to Beach City during the off season. In Issue 3, Mayor Dewey orchestrated 'Beach City Food Truck Rally' for the same reason.
