About book: Chew, Volume 1 gives you a taste of exciting proportions. Here's a comic that serves up a diversity of flavors. Layman takes criminal solving in a new direction with the main protagonist's special talent for solving cases and catching the bad guys. Matching an equally unique story Guillory's presentation of illustrations is a feast for the eyes. Brought together is a savory story and artwork that pairs well together.Image Comics publishes yet another winner with Chew. Chew is a graphic novel that takes cannibalism and investigating down an unusual path. Set in a world where the bird flu is prevalent and has killed 23 million people, the F.D.A. is the highest form of law enforcement and Tony Chu is the detective following up.Detective Tony Chu has an advantage most investigators would simultaneously crave and be repulsed by. He can ascertain information through ingesting foods or other edible materials. In his line of work that means sometimes—or more often than not—taking a bite out of a corpse to find out the details of their murder to crack cases. They call what he can do Cibopathic: the ability to get physic impressions from whatever he consumes. As a new addition to the Special Crimes Division—the most powerful enforcement agency there is—he investigates even the most dead-end of mysteries.I could barely stomach my enjoyment of this series, it's just that damn good! Although, it's probably NOT a good idea to eat food while reading because it holds back nothing when it comes to describing its contents—literally. You can expect a considerable amount of violence, action, mystery, with a splash of horror decorating each page with graphic imagery of all of the above. Cleverly concise dialogue, and truly out there characters lends itself to a ridiculously intriguing, and strangely addicting story not to be missed out on. No need to Chew it over just pick up these comics and enjoy! Chu has the remarkable ability to determine the entire history of whatever he eats. This makes him a valuable asset to the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency in the nation, as it tries to fight against the illegal poultry trade. Yep, that's my description and I stand by it. What a delightfully bizarre comic this is. I'm totally enamored with it all - the art style, the strange plot logic and Chu's squeamishness and savagery.
