same excuse, different day:

i burned through all ten published volumes of this series in a matter of months, and while i managed a fairly coherent review of the first volume, i am overwhelmed by the thought of going back and reviewing volumes 2-10, trying to recapture that innocent mindset that didn't know what happened in subsequent volumes and trying to stay within the lines of the volume i'd be reviewing.

my hat is off to you serial comic book/graphic novel reviewers who are able to consistent

I am really bothered by the way most women are drawn in this series, but on the positive side POYO!

Okay. Picture this. Tony Chu wearing a kilt. Riding a segway.

If you're still reading this and not out buying the latest volume of Chew, you must not be acquainted with this wonderfully weird series about an FDA agent with a very strange gift. - (See Chew, Vol. 1: Taster's Choice)

It's a great day! Even Mike Applebee's sweat stains are smiling. Why? Because the bane of Mike's existence, Chu, has been demoted to traffic. Hence, the kilt/segway thing. But, this is Chu we're talking about here. Thin

Tony and Amelia are the cutest, Olive is badass and John is hilarious as usual.

Another great volume of Chew! 4.25

The funniest volume in awhile. The overarching story has kind of slowed down, but there is some traction. Olive, Tony's daughter, is turning into quite an interesting character in her own right.

Page one. PAGE ONE!! That is how good this book is (at least for regular readers, who know *why* that dude is on cloud nine). I'm sold by page one, and even when it slows down into regular plotting, the fact they can instantly establish a feel is pretty damned talented.

This book delivers just as many weird or silly moments as before (including some hilarious background elements Guillory keeps adding in for fun - like South Park reference, Mike Myers reference, Muppets reference), but is dragging

Tony Chu and his daughter Olive are kidnapped - by different people for different reasons. Tony is taken for his cibopathic abilities in revealing the sordid details of famous dead baseball players while Olive is taken by Mason Savoy to be trained to fight a larger fight against a mysterious and powerful enemy.

Chew 5 is the first book in the series which I haven't fallen in love with 100% and that might be for a couple of reasons. First off Tony and John Colby are broken up and sent to different

Just when I thought that this series could not get any better, it just continues to amaze me! With its wacky sense of humor and going into the dark and gritty nature of crime sprees, John Layman’s fantastic “Chew” series just continues to impress me! In the fifth volume of “Chew” called “Major League Chew,” Tony Chu is definitely up for some more crazy adventures as the mysteries of the fourth volume continues to unfold!

What is this story about?

Tony Chew has been kidnapped for a very ridiculous reason! That sportswriter finally had his (almost) revenge with our charming cibopath as he forces loads and loads of anciently rotten baseball players to Tony just to write a book about their sexual escapades. Haha, as if Chew isn't weird already.

Yet I quite get the feeling that this particular volume is just a filler arc. The baseball story just provides a perfect leeway for Olive Chu character to develop, and John Layman has carefully changed

Im rounding this up to four stars, for humour, originality and consistency.

This comic is a good laugh!
