    Chew is one of those books that you expect to be good and frankly that's probably why so few people bother to review it or even talk about it. They just expect that they'll enjoy the story and laugh and that John Layman will introduce some new food related power and they'll feel justified spending their three bucks. But do you know how much harder it is for creators to consistently deliver issues of this caliber, especially with that expectation? I don't know how this creative team has done it, buy Layman and Rob Guillory are one of the best creative duos in the history of comics. How can you even question that at this point? This is two guys that make a comic book that beats the vast majority of all other comics being published and they do it themselves" amazing. If you're not reading it, you're likely wasting your money on something else. Read Full Review

    Even if you missed last issue, jumping on this one wont be a problem as long as youre reasonably caught up. This is a series absolutely worth starting at the beginning for, however, as seeing the characters develop and grow over 42 issues (8 volumes collected in trade) makes every future issue rewarding on a whole other level.

    Coby's Top 5 Comic of the Week John Layman has managed to keep this wacky, crazy, fun comic grounded yet wildly entertaining for 42 issues now. Hopscotch the Kangaroo was the #PanelOfTheDay. This was another one-and-done buddy-cop case without advancing the overarching Vampire Bad Guy plot much, but Chew is still the best current ongoing series, IMHO (as you'll see on my Top 10 list on the right side of
