Introducing Saffron Chu a totally new character to the Chewniverse and looks like the polar opposite of her cop brother Tony Chu. This looks to be a prequel of Chew that as time goes on (and I hope a lot of time) it may overlap with some events. Regardless of whether it does this looks like a brilliant story of Saffron’s rise to be a criminal mastermind.

I love the Chewniverse and this looks like it is going to be as much fun as usual with Saffron and her boyfriend Eddie jumping straight into a botched mission with the amount of bodily fluids laying the groundwork for things to come. This will be an interesting take following the criminal activities of people who gain special abilities from the consumption of food and I’m looking forward to the inevitable tangents this story will take.

Whether having a brother who is a cop will help or hinder Saffrons professional abilities are yet to be seen but she is clearly already a step ahead as she covers her tracks using beets (even writing that makes me laugh at how fantastically ridiculous this is)

Saffron Chu immediately set to be to be a contender for the most likable Chu of the family!

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
