Chew: Secret Agent Poyo
by John Layman and Rob Guillory
So, Chew is one of the best books out there. It’s fun, hilarious, and it’s a really well written and illustrated comic. The only problem is it’s about 30 issues into its run, and as a new reader, you’re not sure if it’s something you’d like. Well, the fine folks who create Chew have solved this terrible conundrum for you. This week, Image releases a Chew one shot about a chicken so dangerous not even Hell can hold him: Secret Agent Poyo. This book is incredibly funny, fast-paced, and action packed. Guillory provides some of his best art in the series to date, and Layman’s writing is over the top, but perfect for this story. If you’ve wondered if Chew was worth trying out, here’s your book.
The Walking Dead #100
by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, and Cliff Rathburn
The Walking Dead has reached Issue #100, and oh boy is it a crazy issue. There’s been a lot of hype to this milestone issue with multiple covers and news coverage, but Kirkman surprises us yet again with an issue that could only come out of The Walking Dead. It’s hard to talk about without spoiling anything, so I’ll just say this: Kirkman and Adlard deliver the goods with their amazing characters, heartbreaking storylines, and intense art. I hope that they deliver us 100 more incredible issues after this, for they are truly worth all of the praise and success they have received.
