Official Press Release
Fans who pick up a copy of John Layman and Rob Guillory’s CHEW #11 on June 9, 2010, are in for a treat: an exclusive sneak peek of Kody Chamberlain’s SWEETS! A Lousisiana native, Chamberlain makes his writing debut with this five-issue miniseries.
“I’ve been a fan of CHEW from the very beginning,” says Chamberlain. “So, when John and Rob offered up some valuable real estate inside their comic, I decided to give them more than just a preview — I gave them an exclusive! I hope CHEW readers enjoy the peek at four unseen pages of SWEETS.”
In SWEETS, a spree killer terrorizes New Orleans days before Hurricane Katrina makes landfall. Detective Curt Delatte just buried his only daughter, and he’s in no condition to work. But when the bodies pile up, he masks his grief and joins the hunt through the bowels of the Big Easy. It won’t be long until his city — and his evidence — gets washed away.
CHEW #11 (MAR100423), a 32-page full-color comic book for $2.99, features a four-page exclusive preview of SWEETS #1 and will be in stores on June 9, 2010. SWEETS #1 (of 5) (MAY100427), a 32-page full-color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores on July 14, 2010.
