Rated 3 of 5 stars
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Tony Chu, the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats, is on a bizarre new case. A newly discovered fruit takes Agent Chu to a remote island full of secrets. Find out what the fuss is about in this latest a twisted and darkly funny comic about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals and clairvoyants, and a shadowy killer with a particularly sinister appetite.
Chew, Volume 1, was a great start to the series. Unfortunately, Volume 2, International Flavor, leaves much to be desired. The artwork is still great as in the first volume but the storyline was so all over the place that I had a hard time caring or remembering what was happening and why. I thought the writer tried to put too many things into one volume when we are still aching to follow the trail left in volume one with Chu’s partner who is now a vampire. In this book, we see a new vampire without having any explanation as to where Agent Chu’s old partner went and how he fit into the story. I felt dissatisfied with the new partner dynamics but hope that we can get it back on track for Volume 3 (which I’ve already purchased).
