One thing is for sure and that is as we come down to the final six issues, after what Tony sees, the gloves are off. We are close to the end of a world that I have come to know and love for years and still have no idea what we will see, but the new loss that will surely affect Tony and push this book to its inevitable conclusion.

Rating: 8.5/10 – It's a simple book, with not a lot of Chew humor, or time for it, but it does pose some big questions and leave some things hanging in the air with major ramifications. Read Full Review
While CHEW is great, issue #54 is just 'good'. If Layman was aiming to simply to advance the plot with this issue, he has accomplished his goal. However, there is too much filler in an already short issue for me to feel like I'm not being just a little cheated. Read Full Review
This issue feels fairly subdued compared to most of Layman and Guillory's output in the past, as it's all about establishing key relationships and baseline abilities before the end comes - there's some very cool beats here, particularly seeing just how powerful Tony Chu has become as a cibopath, able to piece together a crime scene just by sniffing the air around him.

I still enjoy Layman's writing but I really feel that this fantastic series has lost some of its sparkle along the way. This makes me feel a bit sad as I have really enjoyed Tony et al through all 10 volumes and I really don't want the final few issues to be so dark. I would love a return to form from Layman.
