Written by John Layman, art and cover by Rob Guillory.

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.

32 pages, $2.99, in stores on July 1.


Written by Mac Carter, art by Tony Salmons, cover by Adam Byrne.
