Food Comic "Chew" Coming to Showtime

Chew Food graphic novels are big. There's the hit Japanese wine manga Kami no Shizuku ("The Drops of God"), the upcoming comic cookbook from Dirt Candy chef/owner Amanda Cohen, and the much-anticpated Anthony Bourdain collaboration Get Jiro! Now comes news, according to Deadline Hollywood, that Showtime has bought a script for Chew, a "quirky half-hour cop show" based on John Layman and Rob Guillory’s comic series of the same name.

Chew is about federal agent Tony Chu, a  so-called "cibopath," who is able to solve crimes using the psychic impressions he gets from things he eats, which can include food from crime scenes and, um, body parts.

Stephen Hopkins of Circle of Confusion, the production company behind AMC's The Walking Dead, will direct and executive produce the project.

well.. didn't know that [...] Food graphic novels [...] exists.. really that sounds great and the idea is perfect but as far as i haven't seen one yet it is very difficult for me to imagine what it can be about)))

 

I have heard of this before and I still think it is a good idea. I just hope the people that like regular comic books do not hate theses cookbook comic books because they are "lame". I think that it is a very good idea to make cooking more interesting. It would be a fun thing to try at least one time because it could be a good thing for a whole family to do together.

 

Hello my friend! I want to say that this article is awesome, nice written and include almost all vital info. I would like to see more posts like this.

That might be one of the most disgusting premises for a comic book I've ever come across. It's also one of the most intriguing. I can only imagine the creative mind that came up with this storyline. It's like the tv show psych mixed with Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman. Personally I am not a fan of graphic novels, although they do tend to be more creative than traditional comic books, but I don't think I could get into a storyline based on the main character eating leftover meatloaf( or other random food items) next to a dead corpse.

 

I don't normally read graphic novels and I wouldn't make an exception for this. The concept seems kind of gruesome and twisted. The cover of the magazine doesn't even appeal to me at all either. I would have no interest in reading this series.

 

this to me sounds like one of the dumbest shows to go on television. how out of the ordinary can producers go these days anyway. even in the article it says he may taste the victom. there is no chance that a police force would let a cannible into the crime lab to get a quick taste. to me this show will be at the bottom of my netflix que.

 

I have heard about this book. And according to me it would be interesting book to read. I would definitely love to read this book if get.
