Chew Sees Yet Another Full Series Sell Out with Second Printing on the Way

John Layman and Rob Guillory’s CHEW sees a complete distribution level sell out on entire series in less than a week!

9 September 2009 (Berkeley, CA) – CHEW, the all-new crime series with a cannibalistic twist by writer John Layman and illustrator Rob Guillory, experienced yet another sell out on all issues despite the largest overprint on the series yet. More reprints are on the way, though: The second and third issues will each return for one final, "Last Bite" edition.

"I’m extremely thankful to all the fans and retailers, but I can’t say I ever saw this coming," Layman said. "Even though we up the print run considerably every time we do a reprint, we just keep selling out in no time flat. That kind of support for such an odd book is hard to come by. Rob and I highly appreciate the overwhelming enthusiasm."

CHEW’s star,  Detective Tony Chu,  is a cop with a secret. As a Cibopath,  Detective Chu gets a psychic impression from whatever he eats. While it means he’s a hell of a Detective if he can stomach the evidence,  once his secret gets out the government makes plans for him, whether he likes it or not. CHEW blends horror,  mystery and the strangest ability of them all in an ongoing series of horrific crimes solved in the most horrific way possible. With the sell outs continuing on a regular basis,  Image will be once again increasing each printing’s quantities in hopes of keeping them available. The third printing of issue two and second printing of issue three will mark the final time these issues will be reprinted in the monthly comics format.

CHEW #2-4, all 32-page full color comic books for $2.99, will be available in-stores on October 7th, 2009. CHEW #5, also a 32-page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores October 21, 2009.
