Deep Sequencing: Food Freaks

Or an on-going tabulation of the various food powers in Chew
by John Layman and Rob Guillory, Image Comics

Part of the fun of Chew is how regosh-darn bizarre a comic it is. The premise of people with strange food powers living in a society with a strictly enforced poultry ban is just delightfully strange and wonderful. The thing is though, Chew, as crazy as it is, is manufactured in this really thoughtful, systemic way where each weird idea builds on the last so that entire nuthouse is constructed in this alt-logical, internally consistent way. It's pretty cool and a sign that we should be wary of John Layman and Rob Guillory eventually starting a cult-religion. (I am on to you, gentlemen.)

Anyway, in celebration of the weird world of Chew and it's intensely well constructed madness... and because I like to make info-graphics, here is my new recurring chart of all of the wacky food powers in Chew. Specifically in the Chew collections volumes 1-7.

There will be *SPOILERS* for Chew Vol. 1-7, so proceed with all due caution.
