I've mentioned a few times what a great and refreshing series Chew (by John Layman and Rob Guillory) is. Once again, the complete series has sold out within a week, despite the largest overprint on the series. If you've missed out (for some reason), more reprints are on the way. The second and third issues will return for one final "Last Bite" edition.
John Layman has expressed his appreciation:
Image will be increasing the printing quantities in order to (hopefully) keep them available. The third printing of issue two and second printing of issue three will be the final time these issues are reprinted in a monthly comics format.
I'm extremely thankful to all the fans and retailers, but I can't say I ever saw this coming. Even though we up the print run considerably every time we do a reprint, we just keep selling out in no time flat. That kind of support for such an odd book is hard to come by. Rob and I highly appreciate the overwhelming enthusiasm
Chew #2-4 will be made available in comic shops on October 7, 2009 and Chew #5 will be on sale on October 21, 2009. All will sport a $2.99 price tag. Check out this series and satisfy that comic book hunger for something new and different that you have.
