is an American comic book series written by John Layman with art by Rob Guillory and published by Image Comics. It centers around Tony Chu, a police detective who is "cibopathic," meaning he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. Chu gets appointed to the FDA, which, because of the illegalization of chicken, has now become the most powerful law-enforcement branch of the United States government. See any connections so far? Well, the first three issues of Chew have all sold out multiple printings with the first issue receiving four printing as well as being reprinted in black and white in . To say that critical reception has been mostly positive would be an understatement. Peer response (i.e., other comics writers) however remains muted, probably because of sheer envy. Thus far the series has followed a 5-issue story arc format. The current issue #12 is the second issue of the third arc, "Just Desserts." After Robert Kirkman's , this is the best ongoing comic book series today. It is also the funniest. Quite a one-two punch for Image Comics. Save for issue #12 all are Minutemen scans.
