Volume 5 in the Tony Chu saga.

I really didn't care for this one, the story still is strong and it is clearly setting up future plot points but I really didn't get much out of it or enjoy it very much. It felt necessary to read to get future stories but not one of the more interesting additions to the series. ( )

Yay for more Chew! I feel especially sorry for Tony in this volume, but I'm sure he'll be all right (reasonably sure). It seems like the original plot might be moving along once again, which is always nice. ( )

Detective Tony Chu gets transferred from the FDA to the traffic cops, kidnapped, and forced to eat a bunch of famous baseball player's corpses to extract their memories... and their abilities. Y'know, just another day at the office.

Okay, seriously now, what?!? Chew started off as the interesting kind of gross-out weird, but has long since started to shade into gratuitous gross-out weird. I'm not sure at all how the events of this volume have anything to do with the big conspiracies introduced in all of the previous volumes, which leads me to think that this series might be coming off the rails... or at least that it's veering out of my area of interest. 3 out of 5 stars.
