Layman & Guillory
The finale to the "Last Suppers" arc in Chew provides a surprising twist in the second to last arc in the series. This is a very strong comic. The cliffhanger from the previous issues spills into this issue and there are other surprises that move this comic into a very different direction as it gears up for what looks to an unpredictable final arc. The artwork is stellar as always. Overall, this is a very strong read and is definitely a comic to seek out.
Media Release -- Today, IDW Games announced the official release date for the first in a series of CHEW tabletop games. CHEW: Cases of the FDA will be available in May of 2015. This fast-paced, high-laughs card game features art by Rob Guillory, including a brand-new box cover, as well as text by CHEW creator and writer, John Layman. IDW Games tapped designer Kevin Wilson (Descent, X-Files, Arkham Horror) to create an appropriately over-the-top card game worthy of the CHEW name.
Media Release -- Image Comics is pleased to reveal a very special variant cover by New York Times bestselling artist Rob Guillory (CHEW) for the first issue of PUNKS: THE COMIC by Eisner and Harvey award nominees Joshua Hale Fialkov (The Bunker, The Ultimates) and Kody Chamberlain (SWEETS, The Ride). The cover features Abe, Dog, Skull, and Fist and will be available to pre-order with Diamond Code AUG140540.
Media Release -- John Layman and Rob Guillory's new CHEW spinoff one-shot WARRIOR CHICKEN POYO boasted a foil exclusive at San Diego Comic-Con last week and fans of CHEW flocked to the booth for the issue. WARRIOR CHICKEN POYO's ending shocked long-time CHEW fans and pulled in new readers with fun pop culture references. The issue has sold out and has a second printing with a new cover by Rob Guillory already in flight.
In this issue, the heroic, world-saving warrior chicken Poyo is plucked from the world of CHEW and dropped into the magical kingdom of Yoek, a land that is home to characters that are strikingly similar to classic fantasy literature. Unfortunately, Yoek is also newly plagued with an evil Groceryomancer bent on destroying the kingdom with, well, angry sword-wielding, asparagus-spear-throwing vegetables, fruits, tubers, and legumes. The fate of the kingdom rests on the brave and noble warrior chicken Poyo's shoulders.
"Poyo is the ultimate bad-ass, and so is everybody who picked up the first printing of Warrior Chicken Poyo," said Layman. "But, in an effort to make the world less pathetic and lame, we're giving even more people a chance to prove their supreme awesomeness with an opportunity to pick up what's probably the best comic book in the entire history of mankind, if not the universe!"
CHEW: WARRIOR CHICKEN POYO has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. It is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
Image Comics is pleased to announce that this issue will be going back to print to meet customer demand. The second printing of CHEW: WARRIOR CHICKEN POYO (Diamond Code JUN148317) lands in stores on 8/27.

Chew and Revival have more in common than you might think. This comic one-shot brings the two worlds together with two, sixteen pages stories, one by each creative team in a $5 flip book that's an extremely fun read. If you are a fan of either book then this is a must have, but if you are curious about either book then I urge you to pick this up because it certainly feels like a great point to jump on to either book.
