    I've been reading it, and it's fairly good. I think it's charm really comes from the initial concept, but there's definitely some sort of conspiracy in the background.

    As the writer was telling a prospective fan: "The main character is a cop who is a cibopath, which means he feels the emotions and memories of what he's eating before it died. So he has to feed on murder victims to know who killed them. It's like CSI: Cannibal."

    I'd buy it ASAP since it's been selling out everywhere. First issue is on its 3rd printing, 2nd issue on 2nd printing, and the 3rd issue just came out this Wednesday.

    I hope you like it. I should also mention it's done in a light-hearted way (despite the premise). There's some swearing and gore, but it's not done in a grim and gritty realistic style. It's definitely an interesting mix.

    Let us know what you think.

    Haven't read the third one yet but yeah the first two were great, Kirkman compared it to Walking Dead in sales and said Chew is doing more than double, not to mention they are on their 3rd reprint :noes:
