    I realize that every review I write for this series simply praises the great work of John and Rob. Can you blame me? Just the fact that everything lines up perfectly from one year ago (and change) to now, proves how well planned this series actually is. Planning like this deserves praise. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin May 26, 2012

    This issue of Chew is like most others that have come before. That is to say, it's amzing. John Layman and Rob Guillory have somehow managed to continually maintain the same high level of quality from issue #1 until now, and I don't see that stopping any time soon, which is both astounding and worhty of recognition.

    Major Spoilers - Zach Woolf May 24, 2012

    With both creators on this book saying that Chew will end at issue 60, there is a time coming when I will no longer be able to look forward to new happenings in this crazy, cybernetic animal, chicken-less world. While this saddens me, I know that it will be a great ride to the end. I mean this issue, and the whole last arc really, was pretty Tony-less, but the story never falters and is continually funny.

    Writer John Layman does a great job storytelling. Not only was this issue complete with Chow and Antonelle's case declared closed, but we're already set up with next month's storyline. With the return of the vampire cibopath at the end of this issue and Tony's future still questionable, I'm eagerly anticipating next month's issue. I give issue #26 an 8/10. Read Full Review

    Chew is a fantastic book. Sometimes you have amazing issues and sometimes you have ones that are less amazing. All are great reads and all of them are fantastic entertainment. This issue is a focus on a character that really hasn't gotten too much attention and her story provides a compelling read. This is a fun one-shot to sample if you are new to Chew. Whatever your exposure (or lack of) to the book you won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is another great issue of Chew. I can't give it a resounding recommendation, due to the actual story not being all that interesting though. If you do not appreciate the humor or Rob Guillory's fantastic stylized art, then there is simply not much here for you. Personally, I greatly enjoy both of these qualities. The Toni character is fun and full of energy, even when she is biting chunks out of people. Her curmudgeonly brother, Chow, acts as a great foil for her and I can very well see these two working well as a comedic pair in the future. If you like a comic that's not afraid to laugh at itself and then laugh at everything else and then just kind of chuckle in the corner for a while, then check this one out. Read Full Review
