Hey, remember that dead baseball player we put on the back cover of Issue #15? Tony learns his story this issue. And not voluntarily, either.

    Major Spoilers - Zach Woolf Jan 21, 2012

    John Layman and Rob Guillory are on a 23-issue streak for creating comic greatness, and don't expect that streak to end anytime soon. This pairing creates dynamic characterization through the writing and art, along with a plot that is well paced and entertaining. Chew #23 exemplifies everything that makes Chew what it is and earns 5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    One request, can the USDA get an upgrade for the "Littermeister 4000!" ? - surely there as to be a 20000 series by now. :) Read Full Review

    Chew is a title that should be read from the very beginning. However, I truly believe that anyone could pick this issue up and be highly entertained. It's got great writing, a fast and entertaining story and distinctly amazing artwork. There is no reason to not pick this book up, unless you simply will only read comics with capes in them.

    ComicBuzz - David O'Leary Apr 19, 2012

    This run so far has been golden and is becoming a modern classic in the making. It will be fascinating to see where the events of the last page are going to bring Colby in his work relationship with Director Penya. Whatever the outcome, it will be funny, disgusting and great comics all in one. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dylan B. Tano Jan 26, 2012

    Chew continues to be on my must-read list. Sure the comic drags at some points but almost every comic does nowadays. The universe these two have created continues to bring enjoyment and I don't foresee them jumping the shark. They have a firm grip on where they want this to go and they are pacing themselves like long distance runners from Kenya. Perhaps I'll dedicate next issue to finding every last hidden reference.

    A good issue, but like most Chews, not for the squeamish. Out this week. Read Full Review
