    A solid issue, with an exciting take on the prison breakout story, but some of this did feel a bit like killing time until the big event. What big event? Oh, come on, Im not going to spoil it. But it really feels like were building towards something major. Read Full Review

    Layman and Guillory have built a very unique world in the pages of Chew and the series has hit various levels on the emotional spectrum from laugh out loud funny to leaving you saddened. Issue #38 moves the story further along " somewhat and I say that because it is never revealed to the reader what knowledge Savoy gains from his stint in prison. When this book is good, it is one of the best books on the shelf. In my opinion this issue left me waiting patiently to get some resolution to interesting story points that the creative team has intrigued its readers with without any payoff. Read Full Review
