Format: Paperback
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 departments in the police force for no real reason which felt a bit contrived. Second, there seem to be more and more people with weird eating powers being introduced by the book. Also, the book doesn't really play a big part in the overall story arc, it's more of a side road and standalone book; but I wanted to find out more about the main story.

That said, there's still all of the elements fans of the series love like the whacky storylines. In one, a chocolate sculptor is so good at sculpting objects from chocolate that they attain the characteristics of that object. In another, a murderous barrista serves up coffee that makes you kill. And of course the wonderful image of seeing Tony in a kilt on a Segway.

Rob Guillory's artwork is still mesmerizingly brilliant. He goes further in this book, cramming in loads of detail in the panels so there are figures of pop culture in the background, along with lots of fun graffiti and side-jokes in between the letters.

Chew remains one of the best and most original comics series going at the moment and "Major League Chew" will tick most of the boxes fans of the series love it for. Here's hoping John Layman's original interesting storyline isn't lost in later books.

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. Things will begin to get wacky before the ink on his first parking ticket has dried.

This is a great addition to the series. You'll see plenty of familiar faces popping up in the book. Those astoundingly top-heavy gals from the USDA are back. So is sportswriter Dan, Amelia's insanely jealous and insanely insane ex-beau from the last installment. And two of my favorite things - coffee and chocolate - play a big part in the action.

Where else can you find baseball, Elvis impersonators, butter sculpture, and severed limbs all in one slim, colorful volume.

Welcome back, Chew.

I've been avidly following Chew, due to the fascinating abilities and subtly-different take on the USA. However, this volume takes it a bit far with the gore. Normally I enjoy comics that don't shy away from the gore, as I'm a big fan of The Boys and The Punisher: Max. This edition, though, goes a bit far on the corpse-eating and it starts to feel gratuitous.

It's unique, a story that only works in the comicbook format, funny, exciting, has moments of sadness and the characters stay in your head long after you've finished reading it.

Excellent book; just when you think the series couldn't get any better, it does. One twist after another; looking forward to the next book.

A great title that I ordered as part of a gift for my fiance who's just getting interested in comics. We both highly recommend it.
