    Honestly, this issue could have ended three pages earlier, but it was still really good. John Layman and Rob Guillory did a fantastic job on this issue. Everything works and flows together like a nice savory steak. Were getting close to the end of the series and I cant wait to see how everything ends. Read Full Review

    "Chew" wraps up its penultimate arc, "Last Suppers" with a surprising and emotional read. The fallout is going to have a big impact on how the final arc plays out. This is one of those powerful issues that only "Chew" seems capable of pulling off regularly. The comic is made more dramatic with the exceptional artwork as Guillory continues to churn out issue after issue of some of the best artwork in the business. This is a great issue in a great series. It will be a sad day when this comic comes to a close. Read Full Review

    As Layman and Guillory wrap up the next-to-last story arc for "Chew," the dramedy isn't slowing down in characterization or pacing. Their unusual but strangely harmonious salad of food, law enforcement and superpowers is a delicious dish that has gotten even better with age. Read Full Review

    Sure, some of this may be a bit indulgent, but it's actually earned, and it's very entertaining. Read Full Review

    That said, Layman and Guillory have promised us a big swerve, and with Chew #55, that moment has finally arrived. In many ways, an issue like this really drives that finality home, reminding us that while we've had 55 amazing issues of this series, once Chew is gone, it is truly gone. The end is nigh, and maybe the time for laughing is over. The last supper of Tony Chu is fast approaching - and while it may be bittersweet, issues like this remind us that this series deserves your attention. Read Full Review
