Image Comics bestselling title Chew will be ending its run at 60 issues, and the final story arc kicks off this July.
Writer John Layman had this to say about the end of his run:
“Hard to believe we’ve come to the end of things, but here we are, five issues of CHEW left, and we’re now plunging headlong into our last and most consequential storyline. Every issue is a goodbye, and there’s a great many characters who won’t make it to the end. We’re grateful for everybody who has been along with Tony Chu and friends on his 60+ issue journey, and we’re doing our damnedest to send him and the rest of his cast off in a very consistently-CHEW fashion. As the noted thespian and philosopher Shia LaBeouf once said (probably), ‘what a long, strange trip it’s been.’”
See the cover and description to issue 56 below.
Previously in CHEW, Tony Chu was on the verge of a great discovery—which came at a great cost. Will Savoy’s sacrificial machinations have been in vain? CHEW #56 signals the beginning of the end: the final story arc. Five more issues. Yum!
