    Chew #51 is a great issue that gives you the usual fun and silly shenanigans that you come to expect from the series. Its only weakness is that it could be doing more with the story, especially now that the series is getting closer and closer to the end. Either way, I don't see anyone being all that disappointed with the issue regardless. Read Full Review

    Out this Wednesday. Now excuse me why I get a little emotional over the whole Chu/Savoy attraction becoming canon. *sniff* Read Full Review

    The series is as silly as ever but you get the feeling that as the creators approach the end, they're getting a little sentimental. Read Full Review

    The jokes are back, the background signs are all here (and un-cross your fingers, the park is NEVER safe!), and there's a full-blown ad for a new stuffed doll from the Chew line. It's comical, it's innovative, it's a bit trolling and it's Chew. Welcome back; and remember, no chicken. Read Full Review

    Chew #51 is eloquently absurd, and maybe that is writer John Layman's signature dark humor just messing with us because he can. It is a playful middle finger to structure and pacing to indulge in fan-favorite characters, but the issue plays like a montage with no movie. There's only nine issues remaining in the series, and we've still got a chicken conspiracy to figure out, damn it. Like Toni said, "There's not much time left for our beloved characters." Chop chop.

    This was not an easy review to write, and no offence was meant by it. I can only hope this was a minor blip in an otherwise superb series. Read Full Review
