CHEW, the highly acclaimed new series by writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory, continues its second story arc, “International Flavor” with yet another complete distribution-level sell out!
“WOW. Months ago, if you told me that CHEW would still be selling out by the seventh issue, I’d have asked what you were smoking,” Guillory said. “Thanks to everyone, retailers and readers alike, for making this book such an incredible success story well beyond anything John and I could’ve dreamed up. You guys are the ones that make CHEW a hit!”
CHEW’s star, Detective Tony Chu, is a cop with a secret. As a Cibopath, Detective Chu gets a psychic impression from whatever he eats. While it means he’s a hell of a Detective if he can stomach the evidence,Â once his secret gets out the government makes plans for him, whether he likes it or not. CHEW blends horror, mystery and the strangest ability of them all in an ongoing series of horrific crimes solved in the most horrific way possible. While copies may still be available at your local comic book store, there are no plans to reprint the issue at this time.
CHEW #8 (NOV090374), a 32-page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in-stores January 27, 2009.
