Not enough human flesh consumption in your comics? Well, Chew on this!
The first issue of Chew will be printed in black-and-white as a flipbook in tandem with Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman’s story. According to Image’s post, the entire 48-page book will not experience any price hikes, being released at the going price of $2.99.
Chew, written by John Layman and illustrated by Rob Guillory, follows Tony Chu, a cop with a disgusting manner of finding clues: by getting a psychic impression off anything he eats.
“As a creator, there’s nothing more satisfying than hearing that a lot of people are interested in reading your book. The flip side of this is there’s nothing more frustrating than hearing how people can’t get a hold of your book to read,” Layman said in a press release. “So, Image and Robert Kirkman concocted this great plan to put CHEW in a lot of people hands– and for the unbeatable low, low price of ‘free’.”
Meanwhile, via Twitter, Image partner Robert Kirkman said “Honestly, CHEW is hotter than TWD was when it started. Our sales never climbed as fast as this. Don’t miss out. Get in on the ground floor.”
