The Eisner Award-winning, NY Times best-selling cult classic Chew is heading for its conclusion at a rapid pace, and the next story arc kicks off in the upcoming Chew #46, with the final 60th issue approaching. Along with this announcement is a confirmation of a ninth trade paperback as well, surprising absolutely no one; this is a series you can count on being reprinted for a long, long time to come.

Check out creators John Layman and Rob Guillory comments on the new arc and upcoming conclusion below, as well as a look at the covers for both the new issue and upcoming trade!

GO AHEAD, BITE OFF MORE THAN YOU CAN CHEW
The New York Times bestselling series begins a new story arc, announces vol. 9 trade paperback

Writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory serve up more CHEW this February from Image Comics with an all-new story arc and trade paperback with CHEW #46 and CHEW, VOL. 9 respectively.

A multiple Eisner Award winning and New York Times bestselling series, CHEW #46 provides the perfect jumping-on point for readers and will introduce a new partner, new boss, and new problems to the new CHEW storyline.

Only 15 issues remain to the series—with a planned ending at issue #60—and the stakes will be raised for Tony Chu with each new plot twist. “Chew continues to drastically change its own status quo from issue to issue and arc to arc,” said Layman. “As we enter the final quarter of the book things will continue to accelerate. Change will come fast, and change will be permanent.”

Guillory added: “John and I began Chew with a very specific end in mind. Now, with only 15 issues of Chew left, we’re hitting the gas pedal in a very big way. Things are escalating to fever pitch, and no character is safe.”

CHEW #46 will be available on February 25 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code DEC140631. CHEW, VOL. 9 (ISBN: 978-1632152894) will be in comic book stores on February 25 as well and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code DEC140632.
