_Chew_ Volume 2

This graphic novel was odd. It's volume 2, so I'll assume that some of the premise was set up in vol 1. I just grabbed it at random off the library shelf. But it has some hilarious elements to it: The main character, last name "Chu", has psychic powers: he gets informational visions from whatever he eats. That struck me as only mildly weird until I realized that as a federal agent type dude, he was going to be sent to crime scenes and expected to ... taste things.

Whatever you're thinking, it's worse than that.

Meanwhile they live in a world where chicken is prohibited for some reason. And there's a plant that tastes like chicken, which gets fought over.

Really, you should check it out.
