    Big Comic Page - Sam Graven Nov 5, 2014

    Chew is nuts (literally, in places). It's hilarious, deranged and brilliant. And whilst there's no psycho chicken of doom this issue (although technically that's not true, he does get glorious full page spreads), it's still the most delicious fun you can have without resorting to eating hallucinogenic fruit.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 5, 2014

    I want to say more about this issue, I really do. It's by far the best issue of Chew I've ever read, but the catch is that you need to have read the majority of the previous 43 plus issues for it to be as great as it is. It's why long form storytelling is so amazing because you can deliver issues like this. If this team doesn't get another Eisner nod for this issue then something is seriously jacked up. Fucking incredible. BUY IT!!!!! OTHER THINGS TO BE SHOUTED IN CONVICTION! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Nov 5, 2014

    Forget riding into the sunset, Chews painting that sunset with an extra coat of dark red. And while the titles still got a while of planned storylines, it looks like they will take place with a cast that is vastly altered, in one way or another. Im actually using that as a bit of a double-meaning as I have no idea what the results of this will be and Layman has been known to swerve an apparent character death in a complete different direction (remember that Tonys partner didnt ALWAYS have that metal face). Whatever happens, if the book maintains this level of quality, I will be all in on seeing what comes next. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 4, 2014

    Chew #44 is, without a doubt, one of the best issues of the series it has had in a long time. It was intense, surprising, had a lot of payoff to a long building storyline and had great writing and art as usual. This issue is definitely one fans of the series will be talking about for a while.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Nov 4, 2014

    Chew #44 has to be one of the most intense issues in the series to date, with the brutal action being something that we've not seen in a long time. Despite being a little sudden, this brutality helps make this one of the best chapters in recent months, leaving me hooked for the next. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Andrea Speed Nov 4, 2014

    While this really isnt the Hannibal finale, its a relatively close comic equivalent, at least in one respect I mean, everybody needed a valium and a hug after that Hannibal, maybe some Ecstasy. (Im really not overstating this. If you havent seen it, watch it if you dare.) This issue of Chew will probably not leave you suffering an existential emotional crisis. But you will watch this slow motion car crash wincing, wondering why they couldnt have waited. But you shouldnt wait to pick this up. Out this Wednesday. Read Full Review

    There was a time, when I remembered reading Chew on the metro in the mornings on the way to work and laugh out loud. Now, for the last 3 issues in which I have read Chew, I have had to stifle myself from saying holy s**t aloud on the train. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 4, 2014

    The end is nigh for Tony Chu and company, as John Layman and Rob Guillory gear up for their final 15 issues of Chew. And you couldn't end a chapter any bleaker than this. Yet just because it's shocking and gory doesn't mean it's not also imminently well-executed, and if your tastes run towards the bloody side of the spectrum, Chew #44 might be your favorite issue yet.

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Nov 7, 2014

    Now the anticipation is even higher for the final showdown. "Chew" #44 proves that Layman and Guillory can still deliver on jokes and characterization, while also serving up an unprecedented level of non-comedic carnage. Read Full Review

    Deadly chopsticks, a secret squirrel and a warning from Chu that goes unheard. All leads to a bloody misadventures that leads to many surprises and plots twists. Good issue.
