    What would you do for one more day with someone you loved? Chew #37 brings the spotlight back to an old fan-favorite in a way that proves that this creative team still has plenty of tricks up their sleeves, plucking the heartstrings while driving the main plot forward. Combining character, action, humor and heart, John Layman and Rob Guillory have produced easily one of the best comics of the week. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Oct 10, 2013

    The quality of art goes without saying here (because Chew). It, as always adds the perfect complement to the types of downright zaniness these stories are chock full of. Overall issue #37 is a pretty low-key one focusing more on buildup than anything else; nevertheless I still enjoyed it as much as I do any issue of what is one of my favorite comics on shelves. Plus, the return of the lying cat t-shit! Times are good for Chew. Read it. Love it. Food porn. Read Full Review

    "Chew" #37 is another strong issue from Layman and Guillory, which is only more impressive for it being mid-story-arc and several years in. Their storytelling has increased in complexity while always being enjoyable, balancing with light-hearted absurdity with drama. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Oct 8, 2013

    CHEW continues to be a great read with issue #37, and it's easy to see why this book is loved by so many, with its abundance of humor and great characters. Of course, it could also be the food pornography, but that's a different story for a different day. As it is, CHEW should easily be at the top of your pull list each and every month as Layman and Guillory continually bring the goods. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Oct 9, 2013

    While issue #37 would be a horrible jumping on place for new readers, it makes me think that the “Family Recipes” story arc may turn out to be my favorite thus far, and any lapsed readers may want to give it another go. Read Full Review

    Not the hottest issue of Chew, but as this series develops more of an ongoing story, transitional issues will happen sometimes. Read Full Review

    Something of a game changer in the Chew universe, and a harbinger of things to come. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Troy Wheatley Oct 14, 2013

    Other than that though, this issue does not move the overall storyline along that much. Tony's ex-partner and nemesis, Mason Savoy, returns in intriguing fashion, and we get some tentative signs that Tony and his brother Chow might be prepared to one day bury the hatchet. Guillory's art is as full of expression as usual; at this point in the series you pretty much know what he's going to (ahem) serve up each issue. With Chew being closer to its end than its start new readers wanting to jump straight onto the monthly books have probably missed the boat by now, but they would be well advised to go check out the available trade paperbacks to get themselves up to speed on one of Image's better series. Chew is its own idiosyncratic pleasure, easy on the gullet, but with enough richness to keep you coming back for more. Read Full Review
