Overview

  • These are strange times for Tony Chu, the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats. Strange writing in extraterrestrial script has appeared in the skies of Planet Earth — and stayed there! People don't know if the end days are upon them or not, but they don't seem terribly concerned about the laws of the FDA, and what was once the most powerful law enforcement agency is rapidly descending into irrelevancy. So where does that leave the FDA best agent, Tony Chu?

Summary: Tony Chu is a cibopath - he gets sense impressions and memories from the things (or people) he eats - which makes him one of the FDA's top agents. Unfortunately, his boss keeps sending Tony and his half-android partner out on cases that have no obvious connection other than their extreme likelihood to get Tony killed... but somehow they all seem to come back to the giant flame-letters that have mysteriously appeared in the sky all over the world.Review: This series has a lot of things going on, all of them are exceedingly strange, and a lot of them don't always seem to fit together. It may be my fault for having a terrible memory and losing a lot of the details between trade paperbacks, but I'm starting to feel like the series is getting away from me, and that the weirdness is not resulting in enough satisfying payoff. It's clever as heck, and there are some truly funny moments amid all the weirdness, but I'm at a point where I think I might be better off waiting until Layman & Guillory wrap up the series/story arc, and then starting again from the beginning... although that's going to be a lot of strangeness to take in at once. 3 out of 5 stars.

Continues the tale of Agent Chu who has premonitions about the origins of something when he eats it. To solve crimes he needs to sample various things from weird fruits to dead dogs. Funny, gory and amazingly drawn. Would make an excellent movie or computer game.

Another weird but at the same time can't help but keep reading type volume. Series was a nice surprise. I been seeing it a lot as a suggestion for other reads. Story I guess sounded interesting and so thought, eh I'll give volume 1 a read to see if I like it or not to continue. Pretty good so far.
