It's the penultimate volume of Chew, the adventures (and misadventures) of Tony Chu, cibopath (person who receives psychic impressions from the food he eats) and FDA investigator. I'm so excited that I'm hearing The Final Countdown by Europe in my head as I type this.

It is two years since the last ill-fated attempt to stop the Collector. Having survived the attack, Tony's daughter, Olive, is well on her way to becoming the greatest secret agent the world has ever known. Tony's boss, Mike Applebee and Ceasar have also survived and are now sporting certain interesting physical modifications. Agent Savoy tries one last time to get Tony to work together with him, warning that if they remain antagonists, sooner or later one of them will have to kill and eat the other. Meanwhile, Amelia Mintz, Tony's wife, has pioneered the new literary genre of "cibosensory fiction" with her series of science fiction novels written while under the influence of psychedelic space fruit. If she can finish her last book, it just might finally reveal what is going on with the fiery writing that appeared in the sky. Tony's late sister, Toni, also makes an appearance, breaking the fourth wall to narrate to the reader.

Chew Vol 11 also includes the crossover issue Chew/Revival, in which Tony and Colby head to Wausau, Wisconsin to investigate the case of a missing hand. This issue is a fun bonus, though if you read it, you will also want to read the other half, Revival/Chew, written and drawn by the creators of Revival.

Chew
continues to be funny, gruesome and fiendishly complicated. I look forward to the final volume, Chew 12: Sour Grapes, in which the tangle of plot threads will hopefully be resolved once and for all.
