“‘There will not be a ‘Chew’ TV series on Showtime,’ ‘Chew’ co-creator John Layman shared via social media late Friday afternoon.

The show’s development has been an ongoing process since its initial announcement during 2010’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, with ’24’s’ Stephen Hopkins slated to direct and executive produce.”

“‘Storm Dogs’ by David Hine and Doug Braithwaite blends sci-fi with crime fiction, and is a worthwhile addition to Image’s growing line-up of science fiction titles with elaborate worlds and great looking artwork.

The story takes place on the planet Amaranth and stars a squad of crime busters who are part of the intergalactic Union. Amaranth has been a vocally anti-Union planet, but a series of brutal crimes have transpired, catching the Union’s attention, and we have our McGuffin.

Hine does a nice job of putting the Union team and the local squad on equal grounding — both teams are perplexed why a Union crime squad would be sent to a remote, anti-Union planet, for a crime case. The mystery’s there and it’s easy to follow and believe.”

A decent start, but runs the risk of being average.

“‘Point of Impact’ written by Jay Faerber with artwork by Koray Kuranel, is a whodunit beginning with a moment of shocking intensity, loses steam along the way and ends feeling like another middle of the road story in the crime fiction genre.

The strongest moment of the issue is the opening page, which could be interpreted as taking place simultaneously with the cover — a cool effect; two lovebirds are sitting in their car outside a high-rise apartment building when a body slams on top of their vehicle. In this moment, the issue lives up to the title.”
