Our cibopath and more adventures – silly, fun and quite good

Chew Smorgasbord Edition Volume 2 (Chew Smorgasbord Ed Hc) - John Layman

 

 

The premise behind this omnibus compilation of Chew is that Tony Chu is a cibopath – by eating something, he learns its history and all about it. He is hired by the FDA at a time when all chicken is banned due to a disastrous outbreak of avian flu. In this second volume of stories, he encounters a whole range of similarly-powered people with a lot of interesting abilities. There's ongoing plotlines involving ex-partners and a cyborg rooster.

 

The style is cartoony and the stories are inevitably silly but quite fun. Worthy of a look, especially if you're acquainted with Volume 1.
