After finding the last volume to be treading water a little, I loved the fifth volume of Chew. The plot (what there is of it) is more cohesive but really the joy is in the details. The background jokes, visual gags, bizarre characters and events - it's all a joy.

We're introduced to Agent Buttercup, Olive gets a bigger role and Tony has a really hard time. Plus there are cameos (of various kinds) by Patrick Swayze, Robert Kirkman, Jay and Silent Bob, and Statler and Waldorf. Colby gets more screen time here and the final page of issue 23 had me laughing out loud. In fact, there were many moments that had me chuckling throughout (the first few pages, the flash forward to issue 60!).

Chew really is a great comic - funny, smart, brilliant art work and attention to detail - if you're a fan of comics or humour you should be reading this.
