Chew, Vol. 1: Taster's Choice - Rob Guillory, John Layman I'm disappointed in myself that I haven't tried this series before now. Having started it though, I foresee buying as many trades of this as I can find at next month's comic con.The concept is simple. Our main character can see bits of a being's past by eating a bit of it. (Usually a plot-relevant bit, which is fortunate for him). I didn't think about it, but this book should also come with a do-not-read-while-eating warning. It's kinda gross at times.Still, it's a lot of fun. Our hero is one of the few apparently decent human beings left in a world full of awful or sometimes just broken people, which doesn't sound terribly fun, but it's played for a great satiric effect. The art style really adds to the atmosphere of the entire comic, giving it a almost surreal feeling at times. I definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys comics. Just... again, don't read while eating :)
