chew, vol. 3: just desserts
john layman & rob guillory
Things are looking up for Tony Chu, the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats. He's got a girlfriend. He's got a partner he trusts. He even seems to be getting along with his jerk boss. But his ruthless ex-partner is still out there, operating outside of the law, intending to make good on his threats against Tony and everybody Tony cares about. It's just a matter of time before their investigations collide, blood spills and, inevitably, body parts are eaten!
I felt like this was a volume full of background. There wasn't much of a specific plot going around, but certain things were revisited and we get more background on Tony. There's the rooster from International Flavor, Mason shows up for a second, we meet his previous partner and Tony's family (he has a lot of siblings!). There's not a specific case in this volume, just either wrapping things up or connecting the dots to other cases.
I've become quite attached to Tony at this point nonetheless so I'll read on and anyway, with a cliffhanger like that how can I not read the next volume!?
