Description

Tony Chu - the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get
psychic impressions from what he eats - has been kidnapped! He was
ambushed, knocked out, brought to a remote location, and bound securely. His
captor intends to feed Tony from a menu of his choosing, to find out what Tony
can see, in order to learn from him. His daughter, Olive, has been kidnapped for
the exact same reason. Two kidnappers, two captives, and two very different
outcomes.
Presenting the fifth storyline of the New York Times bestselling,
Harvey and multiple Eisner Award-winning series about cops, crooks, cooks,
cannibals, clairvoyants - and kidnappers!

About John Layman

Ehe Rob Guillory mit Chew durchstartete, war er für Comic-Fans noch ein weitgehend unbeschriebenes Blatt, obwohl er in der Vergangenheit bereits für renommierte Verlage wie Random House und Dark Horse Comics tätig war. Zu Guillorys frühen Comic-Projekten zählen die Teilnahme an einem Benefiz-Band mit Stan Lee und anderen Comic-Schaffenden, sowie eine Kurzgeschichte im ersten Band der Popgun-Reihe für Image Comics. Der Künstler, der seine Comics nicht nur zeichnet, sondern auch selbst koloriert, lebt in Lafayette im US-Bundesstaat Louisiana. Für seine Arbeit an Chew wurde Guillory 2010 mit dem Harvey Award als Bestes Nachwuchstalent ausgezeichnet.

Our customer reviews

When you have a successful book you can't just keep piling on more of the same unfortunately. You need to stop yourself running out of steam somehow. Luckily for us the Chew team are masters of the craft. The big plot gets put on hold and we have some well deserved quality time with our main characters. People get kidnapped, setups from previous issues are resolved and there is a lot of Where's Wally peering at background details. Both Colby and Chu get transferred to other departments so we get a nice change of scene to view our characters in a whole new light. New culinary words get made up and even weirder crimes are perpetrated. The art is really top notch on this one. The colour work is fantastic with some great nocturnal and indoor lighting. We get to see lots of fiery lettering to contrast the usual icy words in the series that has done more for the letterer's art than any other. There are some great page turns and a real cliff-hanger ending unlike any of the other books. The laugh out loud moment is great, and see if you can guess who Colby's new partner is before you get told. Definitely a Thumbs Up!show more
