    Saffron Chu returns as only Saffron Chu can in Chu #6 from John Layman and Dan Boultwood. A woman with an eye for the big prize is always going to get into trouble sooner or later, and this time its on the high seas. More black comedy and silliness at sea, with a somewhat startling ending! Read Full Review

    Chu #6 is a hilarious, action-filled, mystery laden joy ride that you will not regret. I fully agree with stepping back and reading Tony Chu's books Chew as well. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jul 28, 2021

    Chu #6 is the proper introduction to the character. This is the true act 1 for Saffron Chu and her first outing as a free woman is a much easier sell. All of the classic charm you expect from Chew is here, but now we have a brand-new protagonist exploring a drastically different side of the universe. It feels like the creative team has found their stride and is sailing forward with gusto. Read Full Review

    The new Chu chapter with its exaggerated expressions and softened violence is as good a reintroduction to the character as one could hope for and a fresh jumping-on point for what's to come next. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Jul 31, 2021

    Writer John Layman knows how to make a scoundrel character shine, and the art from Dan Boultwood is both cartoony (check the eyebrow through the hair gag) and action-packed (check the moment for "perfect timing") in a way that is very good for the storytelling. The only possible criticism that one could levy is that everything happened to pass a piece of paper, which is a bit of a long road to get there. This series will definitely shine more brightly in a collection, as the periodical pacing does its plot no favors. Read Full Review
