It's Tony Chu's first day on the job as a federal agent for the FDA, the most powerful law-enforcement agency on the planet. He's got a new partner who thinks he knows everything, a boss who hates his guts for no good reason, and his first order of business is to eat a decomposing finger found in a fast food cheeseburger. By the end of the day, Tony will ingest rancid sushi, face Yakuza assassins and meet the girl of his dreams. It's all in a day's work for Tony Chu, in the latest chapter of 'Chew,' a deliciously unsettling new comic about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibal and clairvoyants.

    The majority of the issue follows Tony's first case, which involves a severed finger found in a fast food burger and all the horrific complications that come with such a mystery. There aren't that many laugh-out-loud moments this time out as last issue, but there's still plenty of material to keep you giggling and cringing at the same time. That's the magic of Chew - you don't know whether to crack up or throw up. Read Full Review

    Some great and funny ideas here. I think the interaction with Mike Applebee would be more hilarious if there was a little reason for him to have a grudge against Tony. Also, Savoy's dialog could be cut down a bit, he doesn't become very interesting until he busts in with ninja weapons. That was pretty awesome.
