Mitchell Moss is about as regular as it gets. He's married with two children, and co-owns a successful chain of Memphis Hot Chicken restaurants. It's not the life that screams hero/vigilante...until he discovers that his business partner is in bed with the mob and owes them $2 million. Unfortunately, Mitch is ill-equipped to be a badass-he's just a guy who makes really good chicken. Can he protect his family from cold-blooded gangsters? Absolutely not.

But maybe the CHICKEN DEVIL can...

    It's a tour de force here with the team obviously enjoying every second of the creative process. Some teams sweat blood to get a new series but I have a feeling this was born over a bucket of wings and some hot sauce. Read Full Review

    Spicy and furious, this story pulls punches and doesn't stop until you're battered to a pulp, and then some. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of fun to be had in this and plenty of places it can go, if this kind of material is for you. It reminds me heavily of the drug-infused Crank film with its distorted sense of time and continuity but blended with Falling Down, though that's more to come in the next installment as our lead takes more control of his destiny. Buccellato's script moves nicely here even if it feels just a bit clunky early on until things feel like they firm up more. It helps a lot that Hayden Sherman's artwork is so dynamic and forward-moving in how it feels and flows so that we get something here that definitely has a lot of energy to it. I'm definitely curious to see where this will go in the end, but it's really going to be a journey to get there. Read Full Review

    Chicken Devil 1 by Brian Buccellato, artist Hayden Sherman, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. Holy Sh*t 🤣🤣😂😂 This is one of the craziest and most hilarious reads I’ve experienced recently! Up front I want to say buy this book, if there is one new book you’re going to give a chance to this week please let it be this one. The best way I can describe it is, if you were to take the the best parts of a Guy Ritchie, Shane Black, and Quentin Tarantino movie and you throw in some Breaking Bad and then top it of with great humor. What I was impressed by is how quickly you can go from belly laughs to “damn this is fuc*ed up.”

    Our main character Mitchell Moss is an everyday guy with a beautiful and loving family - tho more
