This may be the greatest thing I have ever read.
Chew has one of the most off-the-wall premises – it is set in a world where an avian flu pandemic has caused the US government to ban poultry consumption – chicken is now a black market commodity, only available at chicken speakeasies.
A Sous Chef at an underground restaurant ends being a serial killer. I mean that is so perfect.
And I love the fact that many of the characters have foodie names. I crack up every time I read Applebee for a guys name. I work with two cats who couldn’t cook there way out of paper bag and both worked at Applebee’s and we have called them that since they started.
Its been a long time since I read something that hit home..its like it was written just for me and my very warped sense of humor.
If you cook for a living pick up the Volume 1 trade.
