I LOVE this book!!! Fantastic characters, fast-moving plot, awesome action, cool and sometimes grotesque artwork...this book has it all! It's like everything I've ever wanted in a mystery-action comic series. I enjoyed reading/following the characters; Tony and Mason are super cool. Really great stuff! I look forward to reading the rest of the series. One note I want to make is that the artwork style will appeal to some and will maybe disgust (?) others. But don't just judge the comic by the art, read the story too!

Layman and Guillory create an alternate present where, due to avian flu fears, the American government has criminalized the possession, sale, and consumption of all poultry! Tony Chu, investigator for the Special Crimes Division of the powerful FDA, employs his abilities as a cibopathic -- he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats -- to solve crimes. Guillory's over-the-top humorous illustrations and Layman's clever script expertly mix to spawn an enjoyable concoction of cannibalism, conspiracy, and murder.
