Holiday Gift Graphic Novel Recommendations

By Corey Shroeder

The holidays can be a stressful time for shoppers and part of that is knowing, exactly, what to get someone without tipping your hand TOO much so the surprise can remain intact. Worry not, stalwart shopper, for Two Cats Comic Book Store has you covered. This is a list of comics for people with specific, discerning tastes, or just anyone looking for a great read over the season.



Chew Vol 01 Trade Paperback (978-160706159)- A massive avian flu outbreak not only killed millions, but made the FDA the most powerful organization in the US, giving them power to arrest and even use lethal force in the line of duty. Jon Layman's tale follows Agent Anthony Chu, a being dubbed a "cibopath," who can interact in strange, unique ways with food. Specifically, anything he eats (besides beets) gives him a strong, psychic imprint of how it came to be. This includes humans, leading to some grotesque humor. The book could have been a dark, dramatic tale, but instead is played almost solely for laughs, thanks to over-the-top cartoonish art by Rob Guillory. This is a perfect book for someone who likes their humor a little bit dark and a lot gross, but with plenty of wit and...BITING satire.
