Damn, I've reeeeally been slacking on the blog-updating side of things.
But hey, it's been a crazy 2010. Went to Italy (as pictured above) for the release of CHEW's Italian version and enjoyed fine wines, fine cuisine and a much-needed nap. I also finished CHEW's second story arc, "International Flavor", and am knee-deep into the book's third arc, "Just Desserts". And even made time to impregnate my lovely wife April. Life is good...
Here's what's new:
1) CHEW #11 will be released on June 9, along with the CHEW Vol.2 trade paperback (both pictured below).
2) CHEW Omnivore Edition Vol.1 due out on July 21. Hardcover goodness collecting the first 10 issues of the book, along with tons of sketches and exclusive goodies.
3) CHEW nominated for an Eisner Award (Best New Series) and 2 Eagle Awards nominations (Favourite American Colour Comic and Favourite New Comic). Hells yeah. Pretty damn flattering to be nominated, but I must admit that I want these shiny prizes.
I'm looking to post a more extensive blog post later, but for now, here's a look at future CHEW covers (including a cryptic peek at the top secret CHEW 15 cover).
