I can't enough good things about this series of comics. The storyline grabs your hand and sucks you into the plot with great storytelling and witty characters. The illustrations are amazing and filled with easter eggs in just about every panel. If the plot doesn't have me laughing, I'm cracking up with the hidden pop culture references--items from Office Space (reminders about TPS reports come up a lot), Perry from Phineas and Ferb, Portraits of Patrick Swayze and other celebrities, snarky slogans, and just about anything else funny you can think of. I highly recommend it!

Chew is a truly unique book. Layman and Guillory are a great team - they've been together for every issue of this series. The writing is original, funny, surprising and at times, touching. Tony is a Cibopath (he gets "psychic sensations of the past of anything he bites or ingests"). He uses his powers to solve cases for the FDA. Throughout the series, he solves a number of smaller cases while working on the over-arching case of the series.

It has deservedly won Eisner and Harvey awards.

Tony's sister reappears (but not in the typical way that the Big Two brings back dead characters) and it's both humorous and poignant. Tony's daughter takes on a stronger role in this collection, and we also learn a bit more about the Chu family's past. A few new interesting food-powers are introduced.

Format: Paperback
I think we can all agree Chew is a weird comic. A cop who eats bits of people to find out how crimes were committed in a post-avian flu ravaged world where chicken is outlawed and vampires wander about, intergalactic flame writing fills the skies, and Poyo, a fighting cock with cybernetic implants, is so cool and badass he could give James Bond a run for his money? Yeah that’s pretty weird. And yet - 8 volumes in! – John Layman and Rob Guillory somehow make Chew an even weirder series (by the way I’m using the word “weird” as a definite positive)!

Right away, #36 opens with a fake-out – ha fooled ya, it’s really #29.5! We’re taken back to when Toni was still alive and about to cut off her toe for Tony to eat later on. She also helps out Sage who’s gotten in some trouble with the mafia. It’s interesting to see how Tony has been side-lined as the main character by a number of the female characters like his sister Toni, his girlfriend Amelia and his daughter Olive.

There’s more family business as Tony helps out his brother Chow and Olive learns about her mother and father’s courting days through chomping on her dead mother’s bits (she’s inherited Tony’s powers – and then some!). I’m really glad that Layman’s brought focus back to Mason Savoy who we catch up with at the FDA Supermax Food Prison. He’s a great character who’s been missing for a while now – here he gets some awesome scenes as he continues his search for the truth behind the bird flu epidemic.

The usual foodie craziness ensues in this volume (my favourite being the Pastransformers!) and there’s a Poyo splash page as he battles Mutant Corn and Superfish, but that’s not what makes this book weirder than the norm – hell, if you’re a regular (and why wouldn’t you be if you’re reading a review of Volume 8!

I've enjoyed all the Chew stories and I liked this one too. I do wish the story would start moving a bit faster but it's still a very enjoyable read.

Tony gets a chance to see Toni again, which is both funny and heart-breaking. We also get stories with Sage, Olive, and Chow. Meanwhile, John is up to no good...and maybe we'll finally get a few answers about the chicken ban and the end of the world?

The only downside is waiting a few more months for the next one. I feel like I've forgotten some things about the characters. Like, why didn't Tony learn Toni's ability? Is that not a thing he can do? I know Olive can learn abilities, but Tony's done it before, too. Oh well, I suppose that Tony would be too strong if he could see the future.

One last thing--I really wish they could make a live-action version of this with Tony and John played by the actors from LOST that they are based on (Ken Leung and Josh Holloway).

This series never disappoints as Tony continues to investigate shadowy conspiracies of vampires, people with extraordinary ingesting abilities and heroic cyborg rooster (EL POYO!!!). In this issue, Tony uses the ingested ghost memories of his deceased twin sister Toni to learn new information. This series is nuts, in such a highly entertaining way.

Chew is a joy to read and a great recommendation to anyone even if they don't read comics. John Layman keeps coming up with great uses for food powers and I can't help but posting splash pages from Rob Guillory's cuts to POYO's adventures. The jokes in the background art are worth the price of admission alone.

We finally understand the family a bit better in this volume. I love the writing and the art so much that in some strange way I keep expecting a disappointment, and I never feel it happen. It just gets better and better.
