Deep Sequencing: Food Freaks V. 2

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 builds in this systemic way where each weird idea builds on the last so the entire nuthouse is has this wonderful internally consistency. It's totally crazy, but it works. It's pretty cool and a sign that we should be wary of John Layman and Rob Guillory ever running for government office. 

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 updated chart of all of the wacky food powers in Chew. Specifically in the Chew collections volumes 1-8.

There will be *SPOILERS* for Chew Vol. 1-8, so proceed with all due caution.

(The new stuff is at the bottom.)
