Under the Comic Covers
40: Nailbiter #8; Chew #45

This week, Under the Comic Covers discuss the latest issue of Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson's always creepy and entertaining Nailbiter and John Layman and Rob Guillory's tragically delicious final issue of Chew's Chicken Tenders arc.

Along the way we cover some strange and often tangential topics. In our news segment there are name changes and assault charges, we take a brief look into Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's Just the Tips, a sexual manual for those so inclined (those being fictional people with more than a few mental issues), a patriotic tribute to one of the comic worlds greatest fallen hero, and in our Top of the Stack segment we (meaning Mr. Blahg) talk at great length about the entire Planet of the Apes franchise as Grace picks Michael Moreci and Dan McDade's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comic from BOOM Comics, and Mr. Blahg makes a very sober selection with Robbie Morrison and Charlie Adlard's White Death from Image Comics.

And of course... as always... we answer your emails and blather on for ages about a whole lot of nothing... but dag nabbit, we do hope you find it to be entertaining.
