Chew #16 is part one of the five part “Flambe” storyline. Mother Clucker’s Homestyle Fried Chicken Palace is open for business! In a world where the FDA cracks down hard on anyone caught eating chicken, this should be interesting!
Chew has won the Eisner and Harvey Award this year for best new series.
