There are any number annual traditions comic fans hold for Comic-Con International in San Diego, but one that's established itself over the past few years is the latest special edition of Image Comics "Chew" released at the convention by creators John Layman and Rob Guillory.

This year, the pair have cooked up a punny homage to director Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" with a version of the soon-to-be-released "Chew" #35 labeled "Destroy Savoy." CBR has an exclusive a first look at the variant.

Aside from past special CCI variants with a glow-in-the-dark scheme, this is the team's second homage to the director. The cover to issue #13 recast Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" as "Pullet Fiction" in a move Guillory recently said he originally shied away from. "I didn't want to do the 'Pulp Fiction' cover, because I hate homages, but in hindsight, John was totally right and now I think it's one of the best covers of the book," the artist said during C2E2.
