THE METABOLATORS was David Yukovich's follow-up to DEATH BY CHOCOLATE.
Released in November 1996, the story focused on the town of Asplundah (a small villa that was transformed
into chocolate in the first DBC story) and a trio of eerie beings known as the Metabolators. The creatures were
developed by the US Army's War Department and originally used by the Allied forces in World War II. The
Metabolators are charged with making Asplundah disappear, the only way they know how.
A back-up story entitled Indecision briefly caps the chocolate man's origin, and provides an introspective
glimpse into his life. This tale cemented "Agent Swete" as an official member of the FBI's Food Crimes Division.
Both THE METABOLATORS and INDECISION are featured in Top Shelf's DEATH BY CHOCOLATE: REDUX
collection. All of the art has been extensively reworked and redrawn, making this compilation a must-have for
any DBC fan.
