READ THIS IF YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A COMIC AFICIONADO, A FOODIE, AND A CSI FREAK, AND CUPCAKE WARS JUST DOESN'T PACK ENOUGH HEAT FOR YOU. (DOES IT PACK ENOUGH HEAT FOR ANYBODY? LET'S BE REAL.)

So, here's the juice: an outbreak of bird flu kills 23 million Americans and all chicken and other poultry becomes illegal. This brings us to Tony Chu, a vice cop working for the Philly PD who agrees to skulk around a black market chicken restaurant for the FDA, in the hopes of tracking chicken smugglers. When Chu has a bowl of chicken soup, he discovers he's a "cibopath" — someone who can take a bite of anything (even people, people) and get a psychic sensation of what's happened to it. Layman and Guillory release a new issue each month, and Volume 5 just hit shelves in April, so newbies have a meaty stash to catch up on.

  •   THE STEEP ASCENT OF TEA CUVÉE  |  February 13, 2013
    We've all been told that once upon a time, angry Bostonians dumped three shiploads of English tea in the harbor to protest taxes, but let's be real here — it was probably just really shitty tea, and they were doing what any of us would do when continually plied with subpar beverage choices.
