    A second issue proves this series is going full-speed ahead in its narrative filled with fun visuals and fantastic writing. So far, a worthy successor to the original series and itll be exciting to see where it heads from here. Read Full Review

    Overall, Chu #2 was a blast to read and just reinforces what made most people fans of the original series. It's a fast-paced fun time that wastes no time kicking the story into high gear while supplying plenty of laughs and the type of twisted shenanigans that only writer John Layman knows how to deliver.

    And I'll acknowledge that maybe this nostalgia warping my memories of Chew, which was a series I got to read in larger chunks. As a standalone story, Chu is clearly cooking out some cool things, but it's also making me wonder if I should wait till it's a complete course. Read Full Review

    While most stories take a while to build up their foundations and set out on the main story, Chu's moving at an appreciably swift pace in its second issue. Read Full Review

    Alright. More of this. I'd say this is about on the same level as the first issue. I don't know. It's like Chew, but... boring. I feel like one of the problems is that John Layman's sense of humor revolves around building on top of previously established jokes. And by making this a prequel, most of the jokes that could be built upon already have. And the new story doesn't seem to have those same little details like, I don't know chogs, or Poyo, or something like that. At least, not yet.

    Anyways, some more random thoughts:

    -Well, this answered my previous question about the avian flu.

    -Jesus, what happened with John? Like, he's always been kind of douchey, and I remember a lot of that from issue one, before more
