    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 16, 2013

    Tony Chu is back " and this time, it's personal. With a newfound focus that sometimes takes this comic to surprisingly dark territory, this comic is proof that Layman is working with an ironclad premise. A world where food is a superpower can be funny or fearsome, but it takes a special creative team to do both. With a hero that continues to surprise 33 issues in, this is one of the best issues of Chew in recent memory. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Apr 17, 2013

    I never regret time spent with Chew, the humor, the weirdness, the crack pot ideas the mature- audiences cartoon tone. These are man-child comics at their finest. Enjoy with some pop tarts and a beer. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Apr 18, 2013

    An issue that perfectly illustrates why I love Chew so much. These guys know right where the line between funny and offensive exists. They are unflinching in their approach to the line, but they never cross it. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Sam LeBas Apr 19, 2013

    There's something magical about this title. It shouldn't work. You should not be able to invest in a world that's greatest ethical dilemmas have to do with poultry consumption, or buy in to the idea that food-related powers are the key to global domination; you should not be emotionally invested in a rooster. (Speaking of roosters, you will not believe what Secret Agent Poyo is up to this month.) "Chew" makes it work. Somehow, all the ingredients come together to make something absolutely transportive. This title is like nothing else on the table, just taste it; you'll come back for seconds, I promise. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Apr 19, 2013

    The last page of "Chew" #33 is a cliffhanger, even though it shouldn't be. It's Layman and Guillory's excellent pacing and framing that make the silent ending panel stark and punchy. What occurs on the final page is inevitable, really; it's just the how and when that's a surprise, and the fatefulness makes the moment no less gratifying or stirring. Regular "Chew" readers won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    IGN - rzochoa Apr 19, 2013

    If Chew #32 was the lightning, then Chew #33 is the thunder and only the beginning of the food fight that is to come in subsequent issue. With all the serious events transpiring in this issue, the absurdity you expect shines bright. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Andrea Speed Apr 16, 2013

    The art is solid, although my favorite spread is one I can't talk about without spoiling. Let's just say it involves Pengthulhu, and yes, it's as assume as it sounds. Of course, the star of the panel is awesome too, but come on. A penguin Cthulhu? I'm there with bells on, whatever that means. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Apr 17, 2013

    We're halfway through the “Bad Apples” arc, and it's fast becoming my favorite in the series so far. Tony's been kicking ass for a few months now, but it looks like next issue will really bring the pain. Read Full Review
