Image Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Chew #1, Jersey Gods #5, and Overlook #3.  All three of the titles arrive next week at your local comic book shop.

CHEW #1
story JOHN LAYMAN, art & cover ROB GUILLORY

32 PAGES, FC, $2.99

Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It’s a dirty job, and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chu’s secret. They have plans for him… whether he likes it or not.

Presenting a twisted new series about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals and clairvoyants, written by JOHN LAYMAN (Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, House of M: Fantastic Four and PUFFED) with mind-blowing art by astonishing comics newcomer ROB GUILLORY.

JERSEY GODS #5
story GLEN BRUNSWICK, art DAN McDAID, cover ERIK LARSEN, variant cover DAN McDAID

32 PAGES, FC, $3.50

Barock and the gods of Neboron have been caught in the aftermath of a cataclysmic explosion that has left them floating lifeless in space. Meanwhile, on Earth, the Chinese Mafia have kidnapped Zoe – and are threatening to end her life! Is there no one in the Universe who can save her? This is the stunning conclusion to the first arc of JERSEY GODS – a story so HUGE that we had to push MARK WAID and JOE INFURNARI’s continuing back up tale to the next issue. You don’t want to miss this!

Can Mickey really kill someone in cold blood to get revenge on the people who wronged him in the past? Close to living up to his end of the bargain with the ex-mob boss, Mickey might just make it out of Overlook alive. But Overlook’s crime lords, the Unholy Trinity, know Mickey is there for their money and they’re pissed.
