Chew, by John Layman and Rob Guillory, has quickly become one of The Blot’s favorite comic books. I love pretty much everything about this book, and if you haven’t read it yet go pick up the first trade ASAP! If you are reading Chew, then you’ll be excited to know that in just a few weeks Image Comics will be releasing a Chew one shot featuring the book’s most popular supporting character, and comic’s most beloved homicidal cybernetic kung-fu rooster, Poyo!
What I especially love about this one shot is that Image will be releasing a San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Pink Metallic Foil Variant Cover for it. It’s the ‘90s all over again, and I love it! There was a time when every comic released had a die cut, hologram or metallic foil cover and The Blot ate it up. Thankfully that trend died a quick death, but every once in a while it’s nice to have it rear its ugly head again. It really is so bad it’s good! The fun SDCC Variant can be purchased exclusively at the Image Comics SDCC booth for $10 each.
