    Chew Trade Paperback Release Party – December 5th!

    Chew is one of the most buzzed-about new comics this year, and Rogues Gallery is throwing a party to celebrate the release of the trade paperback, with the writer and artist in attendance! On Saturday, December 5th, we’ll have writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory in the store to sign the first, all-new, intro-priced at $10 Chew trade paperback. We’ll also have chicken, Yakuza and the FDA… but more on that after a quick synopsis.

    Tony Chu is a cop 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. It`s a dirty job, and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn`t bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chu`s secret. They have plans for him… whether he likes it or not.

    Presenting a twisted new series about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals and clairvoyants, written by JOHN LAYMAN (Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, House of M: Fantastic Four and PUFFED) with mind-blowing art by ROB GUILLORY.

    The party will start at 7:00 PM and continue until close, and everyone in attendance will be able to munch down on chicken fingers in the Yakuza speakeasy, take an FDA agent quiz or just indulge their inner cibopath (more on that one later).We’ll have a live remote comics podcast going on with the guys from the League of Extremely Ordinary Gentleman. And of course, folks can chat with the creative team of this new smash-hit series and pick up the first trade or get their issues of the series signed. There will also be a chance to win a rare first printing of the first issue of Chew!

    We’ll have more information in November as the event gets closer, but book the date now… this is going to be one of our biggest events of the year.
