Detective Tony Chu takes a bite out of crime, literally. Chew follows the career of a detective with a different skill set. Tony Chu can “see” the history of anything he eats. For example, if he eats popcorn, he can tell you the conditions of the field where the corn was grown to the factory where it was put in a microwaveable package. So how exactly does this help the local CSI team? Well, Tony can “taste” samples of murder victims and can use the clues he gets to help solve the crime. Have you lost your appetite yet? And this is just the start of the weirdness!
Chew is an engrossing, and gross, graphic novel series that’s a perfect choice for older teen fans of horror, gore, and Fangoria magazine. The art work is perfect and adds to the horror. Despite the occasional gag factor, the story is compelling, Tony Chu is a very likable character, and readers will find themselves rooting for Tony as he navigates the criminal underbelly of his city. So if your literary tastebuds are craving horror, gore, and fun wrapped in one neat package, check out Chew today.
