Chew 1 – Taster’s Choice
‘Tony Chu is a detective with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. He’s been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases.
Presenting Taster’s Choice, the first story arc of the sold-out and acclaimed surprise hit comic Chew, a twisted and darkly funny series about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals and clairvoyants.’
