Series Description

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.

Chew, Volume 2: International Flavor 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

A big fan of volume one, I will continue reading until the series is done or until Layman loses this writing style, which (I hope) is doubtful. Though I did enjoy vol. 1 a bit better, I was pleased with International Flavor and the small progression of the story presented in the vol. 1, but also the introduction of interesting and original new characters and additions to the already wonderful story line. I really am jonesing for vol. 3.

Summary: Tony Chu, the cibopathic detective, has stumbled on to something big with his incredible - and frequently disgusting - ability. In Volume 2, Tony has to deal with his old partner's return as a half-android robocop (thanks to the butcher knife to the face on the night of the speakeasy bust), a USDA agent with a trained surveillance rat named Jellybean, the internal politics of a small Pacific island, a mute chef who can only communicate through food, a prize cockfighting rooster named Poyo, and a strange fruit that tastes exactly like chicken when it's cooked... and like something else entirely when it's raw.Review: Calling Volume 2 more of a cohesive story arc than the somewhat fragmented Vol. 1 is not really accurate, because the action is still all over the place in the same manic fashion. However, it is at least mostly confined to events on the one island, which does at least give some sense of an arc taking place - even if there are tangents flying off that arc in all sorts of crazy directions. I still only have the vaguest ideas where the story is going, but I'm enjoying the heck out of the ride.The art in this volume is also equally fantastic. Really, while I missed Savoy, I otherwise enjoyed this installment just as much as the first. 4 out of 5 stars.

This arc didn't interest me as much as the first trade, but it was still a pretty good read, and the second trade feels more cohesive than the first. The story leaves a lot of questions unanswered at the end; I'm looking forward to reading the third trade.

Continues the tale of Agent Chu who has premonitions about the origins of something when he eats it. To solve crimes he needs to sample various things from weird fruits to dead dogs. Funny, gory and amazingly drawn. Would make an excellent movie or computer game.

Though sometimes I find this comic hard to read (because it's gross) I cannot help but love it -- and want to read the next one. I was surprised with the deaths in this, but I'm intrigued as to where the story's going on. Plus, the idea of a guy who can taste something (anything) and know it's history never stops being disgustingly awesome.

What's with the art style? I mean if its the tone the series is going for then okay. But still, the series so far is weird, but interesting at the same time. And I kind of like the story so far. Interesting series.

Such an amazing collection of new ideas. John Layman and Rob Guillory do such a fantastic job here of showing us exactly how good original ideas can be when done right. Not just the character of Tony Chu bu the entire world that they created from this bizarre chicken-less world. The art is quirky and fun and suits this book so well. Its such a good book. I can't wait to read the next installment! Great book!
