Title: Chew Volume 1 : Taster’s Choice Author: John Layman Artist: Rob Guillory Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: December 8, 2009
It is strange to really dislike something so universally beloved. It is also strange to talk to your buddies, with very similar tastes about it. You start out really gentle, like… “Dude, what did you think of, Chew? Did you like it?”
And he doesn’t want to ruin your good vibes, if you dug on it, so he is all like “Well I thought it had …. problems…”
And then you feel a gush of relief. “Yeah, some. I think i can name a large number, actually.’”
There are podcasts out there that love to hate the books they read. We do not. We have more fun-loving on something than hating on it. The podcast is a lot of fun. It is worth the effort. We have thought about only podcasting on things we can give a positive review to.
We don’t. Somehow it feels dishonest to do that. I can’t quite put my finger on it….
Still, there is a sense of relief when you realize your friends hate the same things you do, rest of the world be damned.
But Agent Chu digs me, don’t you, Chu?
