chewCHEW DEMON CHICKEN POYO #1
Writer: John Layman
Artist: Rob Guillory
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The final episode of the groundbreaking and historic Poyo trilogy: DEMON CHICKEN POYO. Hell wants him. Heaven won’t take him. Earth needs him. That was also the tagline for that godawful Constantine movie. But Poyo is so badass, he stole it from Keanu Reeves!

MATTHEW: Cyborg chicken in hell. Or, as I call it, “Hey, Matthew, here’s a comic book you’ll like!”

ROB: More Poyo is always a good thing. Somehow the most terrifying thing in the Chew universe is a cyborg-chicken that is usually on the side of good. This franchise is amazing.
