Love. ( )
It's just a super funny premise. Clever art.
My love affair with [book: Chew] continues.
I first started reading these after being alerted that the final issue was out thanks to the lovely Karen. If you aren't following her reviews, please do. I had added the first book to my to-read shelf back when it came out, but honestly I'm glad I waited so long to dive in. This series is fantastic, addictive, and downright hilarious. The art is phenomenal, the writing smart and funny, and the plot downright insane. While [book: Finder] forever has my heart as the best comic series I've read, [book: Chew] is right up there in the top five. If you like [book: Preacher] and [book: Transmetropolitan] I'd be willing to bet you'd like [book: Chew], too. It hits the right comedic notes, alongside the right level of downright insanity.
This volume finally brought in the sky-writing from volume 3. Here's the mystery of the gallasberry continues, alongside Applebee's ever growing desire to kill Chu in the line of duty. The vampire is back (he's Serbian, not Russian), we learn of more epicurean freakshows, and begin to have our first glimpse at what I assume is the end-game. There's some purpose to this madness, and after reading this far along, I have full faith that the writers will deliver and deliver in force the full force of a plot well-delivered.
Honestly, I can't recommend this series enough and I know I'll be binge reading to the end over the next couple days. I only hope volume 12 comes in reasonably quickly so I'm not waiting too long on the finale.
Hilarious! This may be my favorite volume yet, with some really nice dialogue.

Mystery fiction. Science fiction. Graphic Novel. These are strange times for Tony Chu, the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats. Strange writing in extraterrestrial script has appeared in the skies of Planet Earth-and stayed there. People don''t know if the end days are upon them or not, but they don''t seem terribly concerned about the laws of the FDA, and what was once the most powerful law enforcement agency is rapidly descending into irrelevancy. So where does that leave the FDA best agent, Tony Chu?
