"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From the Back Cover
Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he's a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn't mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It's a dirty job, and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn't bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chus secret. They have plans for him... whether he likes it or not.

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.
The graphics are fun and detailed adding to the story and often humor.
A crisp yet somewhat formulaic in the realm of "superheroes" narrative leads Tony's adventures.
Without giving too much plot away, I will just say this:
Overall, a fun read.
Chew is both very real and absurdly entertaining. Read. It.
