    It's safe to say that this comic represents a near perfect union of script and art. With its cleverly twisted concept and over-the-top visuals Chew is a comic that should be on everyone's pull list and as long as Layman and Guillory continue to deliver stories of this caliber it will remain at the top of my reading pile.

    So, in summation, I was wrong. "Chew" #6 is a very good, very funny comic book, and I am a very stupid man sometimes. But, I'm also glad I was wrong in this case, because it means that "Chew" is a comic worth reading, one that I plan to read monthly now, and that's a pretty great thing. If, like me, you avoided this book for whatever reason, go buy this issue and join me in hopping on the "Chew" bandwagon... better late than never, right? Read Full Review

    The detective side of the story wrapped up a bit quickly with little real detecting going on, but since this issue was largely set up for the larger story, it’s hardly something to complain about. All-in-all, we got another great issue of a great book, with a new cast member and a new dynamic. It’s no surprise to anyone who has been reading it, but this issue cements the fact that Chew isn’t just a one-note joke about cops eating dead people. The wacky concept draws you in and the fun stories and satire keep you entertained, but it’s the well-rounded characters that will keep us coming back again and again. We’re at a point in the series now where the character of Tony Chu is getting more and more fleshed out and I’m eager to see the continued interaction between Tony and John as well as the overall conspiracy about the poultry flu. And what the hell is with that pineapple? Read Full Review
