    Over the course of 57 issues, Layman and Guillory have been spinning a lot of plates, and ultimately, it's not going to be surprising to see a few of them wobble - but that's not to say that this team can't end Chew on a successful dismount. With only three more issues to go, there's still a lot for this creative team to say, and part of the mystery of this series has been that we don't know which secret plot is ultimately the most important. Is it alien writing in the sky? Is it the hallucinogenic gallsaberries? Is it the avian flu? The Collector? Or is Tony Chu's greatest challenge still lurking in the shadows? Layman and Guillory bring up even more questions even amidst their answers, and while that might leave this particular installment in danger of being overstuffed, there's still lots to like about the last days of Chew.

    Chew #57 is not a bad issue, and it is very much essential reading up to this point in the series. But at times the plot was a little confusing and may require some re-reads. Action wise there wasn't much as well. The comic is moving in a positive direction, despite it sadly coming to an end. Read Full Review
