READ å Chew By John Layman ↠ Tony Chu is a detective 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 He's been brought on by the Special Crimes DiviWhodunit and why He's been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet to investigate their strangest sickest and most bizarre cases This gorgeous oversized edition loaded with extras follows Tony. It has a good premise and gets points for originality but I think I'm starting to show my age on this It felt like I was reading some bullshit teenage wankfest Everything boils down to poop jokes gross out moments and extreme violence which believe it or not I'm fine with but there needs to be something Instead what little is actually here is a constant barrage of asshole characters The book starts introducing the main character and his partner His partner is an unlikeable asshole Then it introduces a federal agent who is a pompous asshole Then he gets a new boss who somehow is an even bigger asshole Then we get to meet his brother who is also an asshole He does his job and interrogates some people who all happen to be assholes So there are a couple of antagonists they are all assholes We meet some scientists who happen to be assholes Then we run into another fed from another department she's an asshole too Really deep character development here Seriously the only person that we meet outside of the main character who isn't openly an asshole is a girl that we don't know anything about because she leaves the plot as soon as she appears So she isn't an asshole yet All of this is a vehicle for the writer to spout out racist sexist homophobic BS It's cool to do it because he's just writing what his characters would say right Except everyone is awfulAfter a while you start thinking that the main character must be a terrible person too because he isn't saying anything to the contrary and laughs when people make Asian stereotypes The whole thing is reinforced by blacks that can't use linking verbs or prepositions and a cover with a giant breasts but a head that is cropped out of the picture This is really accentuated when a character dies and she is torn up on the ground but still shows off her rackTo make matters worse the art while nicely stylized just accentuates everything that is ugly in this world So there is never any contrast to the churlish adolescent writingI'm really bummed that I bought this new because that means that I gave John Layman my money

Tony Chu is a detective 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. I don't read very many comics do they call them comics stillbut when I saw the premise for this series I could not resist Tony Chu is Cibopathic which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats The only thing that he can eat and not be subjected to a Johnny Mnemonic download overload moment are beets I like beets but I know that it wouldn't take me long to develop a passionate abhorrence of the rather uniue taste of that particular vegetable Too much of a good thing is welltoo much of a good thing Tony works for the FDA in a world where poultry due to an epidemic of Avian Flu has become an illegal commodity on a level with heroin Naturally a black market for chicken becomes vibrantly alive to fulfill the sudden desperate desires of a poultry starved population It is Tony's job to take down traffickers and keep the world safe from a recurrence of another devastating epidemic My favorite character is Mason Savoy a charmer a foodie extremely competent and the villain He is also Cibopathic Mason has possession of Tony's ear and is willing to use it You'll have to read the book if Tony gets to be too much of a problem Tony has a partner named John Colby with half a cybernetic face after an unfortunate accident in an illegal chicken kitchen He is not a straight and narrow by the book cop but he does have Tony's back when he needs it most There are a host of supporting actors that are not only interesting but provide key roles that give buoyancy to the plot One of my favorites was Lin Sae Woo An extremely curvy bad ass gal that works for the Department of Agriculture I'm hopeful of a resurrection later in the series I know with the percentage of people who do not like beets I've probably insured by putting such a healthy bowl at the start of this review that this review will not receive any attention I want to say to those strong willed enough to get passed the beets that I heartily enjoyed this book I laughed out loud I deformed my face into several universal signs of disgust I found the dialogue clever and refreshing I have volume two on my next book order

SUMMARY Chew By John Layman

Chew By John LaymFor the first ten issues of IGNcom's pick for Best Indie Series of 2009 and MTV Splash Page's Best New Series of 2009 Collects the New York Times' best seller Taster's Choice as well as the follow up story arc International FlavorThis edition collects CHEW #1. A strange and gruesome tale of law enforcement in an alternate universe where a supposed bird flu pandemic killed millions and the FDA has since become the single most powerful arm of the US Government The art reminds me of the work of Sam Kieth and the setting reminds me ofwella parody of the alternate universe on Fringe I'm enjoying this series and especially I love how odd elements which at first seem to be one liners or sight gags wind up becoming EXTREMELY important later on
