Chew hits Treviso

The final stop of CHEW tour Italia saw Layman and Rob heading to Treviso for a presentation and Q&A at a packed house at the Spago Paraggi art gallery, moderated and translated by Michele Foschini of BAO Publishing (publishers of CHEW: MENU DEGUSTAZIONE*). In the background, is the gallery's current exhibition, photographs of deceased 80s Italian porn star Moana Pozzi.

And some shots of lovely Treviso:

*Note: For all you CHEW completist weirdos who live in the U.S., we will be offering details for how to order BAO's Italian edition.

ECCC '10: And a good time was had by all

And Layman survived the very, very excellent Emerald City Comic Con, vowing never to miss another. A lot of great fans introduced themselves, including Steve Moles, who is daring/insane enough to be the first person to get a CHEW tattoo (or, at least, to make it known to us.) His a picture of his tattoo, the Gallsaberry alien fruit, in all its tattoo-y glory:

Here's the just-solicted cover to #12, coming in June, and the #13 cover we debuted at the show.

Coming next week: Tour Italia!

On sale 3/3/10: CHEW #9!!

"This issue is kind of nuts, but I mean that in the best way possible."

"There's so much to gush about this series at this point that it's starting to feel somewhat ridiculous, yet the creators continue to churn out new and exciting concepts month after month, so, alas, the heaping of praise must continue."

"This issue helps further solidify this title as one of the most well put together and cleverly designed books on the market, using prologues, flashbacks, story cuts, and artistic subtleties to tell a devestatingly effective story."

"This book is far from perfect, but it deserves points for overall improvement. "
