Get your teeth into this...!,
This review is from: Chew Volume 1: Tasters Choice (Paperback)
For any readers sceptical about this title really shouldn't be. I know what you're thinking - how can a new ongoing comic series about a Detective that solves cases by eating a disgusting range of food be worth reading? Its just that. Lead protagonist Tony Chu is a cop with a very rare ability. Just taking a bite from any food he can get an instant taste, history and image of what, where and how the food was created, and what has gone in it. He uses this skill to help him solve cases surrounding gross murders and putrifying corpses...all of which require him to...well...eat, usually with amusing consequences!
Chew is a really very funny book with an excellent and snappy pase to it. A very unique story line with brilliant ongoing twists and plot holes that will be fasciniating to read as the series continues. This is well worth the special low introductory price for it and for those wanting something different to their comics than super heroes, Chew is a comical noir thriller, deeply immersive and quite simply brilliant.
