Chew Spin-Off Secret Agent Poyo Gets Second Printing

Eisner-winning comic book Chew, by John Layman and Rob Guillory is an incredibly popular book, and it seems the one-shot spin-off of the series, Chew: Secret Agent Poyo is no different. The story about a cybernetic, kung-fu fighting rooster was one of the more popular San Diego Comic Con exclusives for Image Comics, and because of the popularity, the book will be getting a second printing.

The  twenty-two page comic also features ten pinups by some of the best independent artists in the industry, including Jim Mahfood, Nick Pitarra, and Ben Templesmith. The impact of this book cannot be denied, at least according to writer John Layman.

Secret Agent Poyo is the most important thing to happen to comics in the last three hundred and fifty years, and it’s clear that the public recognizes it for the towering literary achievement that it is.”

Layman may have a point as Secret Agent Poyo fights his way back into stores on August 29th.

Russ Pirozek, known as "Noobcrawler" to some, is a gamer and comic book fan who sometimes gets around to writing for DigitalNoob.com. He's also awesome. If someone looked up "awesome" in the dictionary, his picture wouldn't be there, but that's because he's too busy being awesome to pose for a photo.
