Tony Chu, the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats, is on a bizarre new case. A newly discovered fruit takes Agent Chu to a remote island full of secrets, Presenting the second storyline of's pick for Best Indie Series of 2009 and MTV Splash's pick for Best New Series of 2009. Find out what the fuss is about in this latest a twisted and darkly funny comic about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals and clairvoyants.strangeness-and a shadowy killer with a particularly sinister appetite.


Volume 2 is an obvious continuation to volume 1, following Tony Chu and his partner, both federal agents. Tony Chu is a cibopathic, which leaves him with the shit end of the stick during each and every new case that's thrown there way. Continuing where we left off from volume 1, Tony is given even more cases that make him taste incredible gross and strange things from victims from each case. 

Tony's boss doesn't like chu at all and intentionally gets Tony to taste disgusting things when it's not even necessary for the open case. I don't know why his boss hates him but maybe with each volume more information will be given to why.

This was entertaining and fun to read, while I was read both the first and second volume I couldn't stop reading them. Both these the first and second volume are short and both are left with cliff hangers which make me want to pick up volume 3!

I recommend this to readers who are looking for an easy to follow graphic novel, which is really entertaining because of it's unique concept.
