Amelia Mintz is a food critic and a Saboscrivner. That means she can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision, people get the actual sensation of taste when reading her restaurant reviews. Since the government prohibition of poultry, she's lost her enthusiasm for the culinary world, and only reviews restaurants with a 'D' rating or less from the Health Department. Her last review caused half the city to projectile vomit, and sent hundreds to the hospital with severe food poisoning. Agent Tony Chu has been assigned to arrest Amerlia Mintz, but there's just one problem with that

    Chew is a creative homerun all the way, and it deserves the level of runaway success it's currently enjoying. If you haven't gotten your hands on a copy yet, you aren't nagging your retailer enough. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Mike Smith Aug 8, 2009

    Layman and Guillroy continue to produce one of the most original and fun books to come along in sometime. While issue #3 hit stands this week, issue #1 released a third print and issue #2 released a second print. Everyone seems to agree that Chew is a hit in both sales and overall quality of the book. Hopefully you have been one of the fortunate ones to read the first three issues. If not then I would encourage you to rush out now and get your hands on what looks to be the surprise title for 2009.

    Guillory's distorted linework and designs reinforce the unique and unusual qualities of the story and characters. He clearly crafts Amelia to be a beauty, but he avoids the typical curves that artists usually employ to convey beauty. Instead, her form is as misshapen as everyone else's, so the artist conveys her attractive qualities through a shining smile, perkiness and confidence. I also loved the gruesome greens he employs to convey the stomach-churning results of Amelia's work. Read Full Review
