I do have to point out that the lack of super hero " bam , pow ! " .. the emphasis more on what you would see in the "real world" albeit with subtle , interesting changes so grounded in the real world that they don't seem that far apart from it compared to the more "epic fantasy/science" things you see in comics.. might be off-putting to some readers who want more of the above mentioned thing... but to me the joy of Chew is just that, it's so grounded in what we would consider stuff that " could happen in the real world".. add in some very interesting characters who we see "in depth" so to speak and interesting plotlines and you have yourself a winner.. I've read at least 24 issues of Chew and thoroughly enjoyed each and every one..
This comic series has so much heart and personality. I've laughed out loud many times while reading, and gasped, "No!" a few times as well. Layman and Guillory are a dream team of wit and originality. Their characters are memorable and easy to get invested in. Readers who pay close attention are rewarded with a myriad of jokes woven into the background art and into the stories.
Chew is a blast! Every friend I recommend it to gives it no less than 5-star worthy praise.
As such, I am torn. I would like to see where the story goes next, but I am not sure I am so committed that I really want to read my way through another stomach turning GN, much less pay for another serving.
Chew is both very real and absurdly entertaining. Read. It.
If you like dark humor and graphic novels which dont take themselves too seriously but have quite a few interesting subplots and character arcs occurring simultaneously I would recommend this series.
As of today this is my favorite series I have read and reading this and vol. 2 and 3 compelled me to get a box at my local comics store, because I just cant wait every 5 months for the TPB (though I will probably end up buying them anyway.
