OUTER DARKNESS MEETS CHEW IN UPCOMING CROSSOVER

John Layman and Rob Guillory, the creative team behind Chew are joining forces once again for a three-issue crossover mini-series, Outer Darkness / Chew from Image Comics / Skybound Entertainment. Illustrated by Afu Chan, the fun begins in March 2020.

“In the years since finishing the final issue of Chew, the urge to return to the world and its characters has been slowly but steadily growing within me. But I had no interest in returning to some generic ‘Untold Case Files of Tony Chu’ type of story. I wanted to return with a story that goes somewhere new, and says something new about the characters. This crossover will do this. And Outer Darkness, believe it or not, is the ideal vehicle to tell this story,” said Layman. “Outer Darkness and Chew are two of my favorite books I’ve ever done, maybe THE favorite books I’ve ever done, and probably the best too. Creatively, combining the two was a dream come true for me. This book is the peanut butter and chocolate of comic book crossovers.”

Tony Chu is a modern-day cop who gets psychic impressions from what he eats. Joshua Rigg is a 28th-century starship captain who flies through an outer space filled with demons, monsters, and ghosts. Sounds like a perfect recipe for a comic book crossover, don’t it? Join the fun with Outer Darkness/Chew #1. 

Guillory added: "Returning to the Chew universe was always a no-brainer. I mean, after 60+ issues of Tony Chu’s adventures, how could we not? It’s something longtime fans have clamored for since Chew’s end, and this crossover is the perfect excuse to dive back into the insane world John and I created. It’s the perfect ode to Chew, while highlighting the amazing work John and the insanely talented Afu Chan have been doing on Outer Darkness. It’s two great books that just taste GREAT together."

As a huge fan of both books, I am all for this. Chew has previously crossed over with Nailbiter and Revival to great effect, so I can't wait to see what the team comes up for this series.

Outer Darkness / Chew #1 is set for release on March 4th, 2020.
