Chew #2 (Image Comics)
By John Layman & Rob Guillory

Tony Chu’s first day as an agent of the FDA isn’t going to be a fun one. He meets a new co-worker who has it out for him, gets loaded down with years of cold food-related cases, has to eat a human finger to help seek out a murderer, and gets his lunch taken away. You’d think that with the power to flash on the life of anything you eat, it would be easy to hunt down a killer by taking a nibble, but things turn out to be a lot more complex than that. I’m really impressed at how John Layman has crafted his story. It’s a strong mystery with a really clever premise and engaging characters. Rob Guillory‘s art is just as good as the script. The book has a quirky look to it, with somewhat animated art and a different kind of color palette that helps make things stand out. I’m genuinely surprised at just how much I like this book, but it’s quickly becoming a favorite.
