I didn't really pay attention to CHEW when it first came out, but once I got to read a couple previews, I went out and bought Chew Volume 1: Tasters Choice. Since then, I have been loyally purchasing the CHEW trade paperbacks. The fear that the series would eventually jump the shark is just paranoia though... The award-winning team of John Layman and Rob Guillory are still killing it. If you've been enjoying the series, put your order in for Volume 4 and reread 1-3, so you'll be ready when "Flambe" lands on your doorstep.

Enjoy!

The world has changed. And things aren't normal for Tony Chu, the cibopathic FDA agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats...well ok things are stranger than normal. Strange extraterrestrial writing has mysteriously appeared in the sky all around the planet Earth. Is it the end of the world? No one is quite sure, but they do know that they don't care too much about the laws of the FDA anymore. And they'll eat as much chicken as they can. Meanwhile Tony is sent to investigate seemingly random crimes that turn out to related to the writing in the sky. Meanwhile Mason Savoy is doing everything he can to unravel the mystery of the writing in the sky.

I first came across the world of "Chew" earlier this year and instantly I fell in love with it. I mean how can you not love a world where the main character can take a taste of anything and instantly know where it came from? And where chickens are outlawed? This comic series has such great characters, interesting storylines, and fantastic artwork. I love the stories in this issue, especially the interaction between Tony and his daughter Olive as they question Olive about the deadly rampage at the school. And then later on we get to see the interaction between Tony and his sister. There's just so much jam packed into this collection that I just want to go back and read it again and again to pick up on the details that I missed the first time around.

The artwork in this series is one of it's strengths. The characters are well designed and instantly recognizable and they give them fun little details that you can latch onto, like the expressions on the characters faces, which are one of my favorite aspects of the series.

The amazingly funny and creative team of Layman and Guillory have done it again. Volume 4 of Chew is just as exciting and mysterious as all previous volumes. Get into this story now and you won't regret it. The Omnivore Editions are as cheaply priced and overly beautiful as you can get. Image Comics great production continues as these books are made to last.

Chew is by far the best comic book series out there. The story is great and you just fall in love with the people in them. John Layman has done a masterful work with this series.

Ive been following Chew since book 1 came out some years ago. Ive been hooked and eagerly waiting for the next sets to come in. It's great characters with a story-line that I can ease into. The kind of humor in the Chew series, is very palatable. If you like somewhat dark and corky humor, this series is a good fix for you!

Format: Paperback
In this volume Chu finds himself working with an old partner who used to pair up with Mason Savoy, Chu's former mentor turned nemesis. USDA agents, similar to the one in the second volume, show up but this time in great mass. I found some of the humor to be spot on with their characters and man do they love their special pets. Chu's sister makes a more substantial appearance this time, introducing us to Area 51. We also get to know two new types of characters: A Voresoph becomes smarter the more he eats. Daniel Migdalo is a Voresoph. A still partly unidentified power is to control people through food. Peter Pilaf has this power. From this point on this review will be somewhat similar to my review of the previous one in the series so be warned. As usual the tale is action packed, zany in humor at times and complex. I love how the panels have main things taking place but looking in the background reveals more. Now, as far as some of the special terms go here's a bit of a list: (1) a Saboscrivner can write about food so accurately that people get the sensation of taste when they read about the food. Amelia Mintz is a Saboscrivner; (2) a Cibopath can take a bite from anything and get a psychic sensation of what has happened to that object. The only thing it does not work on is beets. Tony Chu, Toni Chu, Olive Chu, Mason Savoy, and The Vampire are Cibopaths; and (3) a Cibolocuter is able to communicate through food, and can also translate written works like plays, poems and operas into their food. Fantanyeros is a Cibolocuter. In March 2011 it was revealed that Showtime is going to turn this into a half hour comedy series. The first three issues of Chew have all sold out multiple printings with the first issue receiving four printings as well as being reprinted in black and white in The Walking Dead #63.Read more ›
