While not quite as strong as the opening arc, International Flavor is still an incredibly fun and entertaining story. More than anything, it proves that Chew is not just a one-trick pony. This concept has versatility. Layman has done an excellent job building up the world within his book and making sure it'll be an interesting read for a long time to come. Read Full Review
I've heard a lot of rave reviews regarding this book along with reports of its surprisingly high sales, so there was a lot of hype to live up to. While it wasn't a mind-blowing experience, it was still a fun ride with equal servings of comedy and weird concepts (like the fake vampire empath guy). I read John Layman's Puffed series back in the day, so it's good to see that his brand of humor has endured and is getting recognition. I encourage you to check it out. Read Full Review
I found this issue too cluttered, there's another player thrown in the mix that doesn't come through gracefully and the short guy's motivations in this issue are peculiar. Overall, the series is good but just doesn't seem to be my cup of tea.
