"SPACE CAKES," Part Three
Remember last story arc when Tony Chu got kidnapped? This issue he gets kidnapped again! How lame is that? Meanwhile, we shamelessly pander to comics' coveted "furry" demographic.

    The pacing, character moments and art are as bold as Poyo is homicidal. Chew #28 is an excellent read. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Zach Woolf Sep 16, 2012

    The Internet has been rumbling of readers not enjoying this issue or current arc, which I can honestly understand why. Instead of a through story line like every other arc has featured, the Chew team has decided to take these issues and tell, seemingly, the wackiest stories they possibly can. Yet, inside that they are laying down foundation for stories that are yet to come and expanding the Chewniverse. While Chew #28 may not be the ideal place for new readers to jump on returning readers should have a fun time with the issue. Read Full Review

    I'm still strongly recommending Chew. Even though this issue doesn't seem to advance the story, it's still full of fun and fascinating characters. Layman continues to surprise me with how adept he is at coming up with cases for the cast of Chew to solve. Every time I read the prologue to an issue I can't wait to see just how it all ties in and how the agents will solve the mystery. So pick this issue up when it comes out next week on 12 September.

    "Chew" #28 feels like a transition between larger plot points in the "Space Cakes" arc, with a balance of action and quieter conversational scenes. It's a midpoint of connective tissue rather than significant muscle, but Layman and Guillory fill it with enough ridiculousness and character interaction to whet your appetite for more "Chew" as it resumes a regular monthly timeline.

    All in all, this issue was alright. It still featured the fantastic art the Chew series is known for as well as a few bits of humour here and there. But for the most part, the plot felt average. I give this issue of Chew a 7/10. Read Full Review
