Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tony Chu and his daughter Olive are kidnapped - by different people for different reasons. Tony is taken for his cibopathic abilities in revealing the sordid details of famous dead baseball players while Olive is taken by Mason Savoy to be trained to fight a larger fight against a mysterious and powerful enemy.

Chew 5 is the first book in the series which I haven't fallen in love with 100% and that might be for a couple of reasons. First off Tony and John Colby are broken up and sent to different departments in the police force for no real reason which felt a bit contrived. Second, there seem to be more and more people with weird eating powers being introduced by the book. Also, the book doesn't really play a big part in the overall story arc, it's more of a side road and standalone book; but I wanted to find out more about the main story.

That said, there's still all of the elements fans of the series love like the whacky storylines. In one, a chocolate sculptor is so good at sculpting objects from chocolate that they attain the characteristics of that object. In another, a murderous barrista serves up coffee that makes you kill. And of course the wonderful image of seeing Tony in a kilt on a Segway.

Rob Guillory's artwork is still mesmerizingly brilliant. He goes further in this book, cramming in loads of detail in the panels so there are figures of pop culture in the background, along with lots of fun graffiti and side-jokes in between the letters.

Chew remains one of the best and most original comics series going at the moment and "Major League Chew" will tick most of the boxes fans of the series love it for. Here's hoping John Layman's original interesting storyline isn't lost in later books.

When you have a successful book you can't just keep piling on more of the same unfortunately. You need to stop yourself running out of steam somehow. Luckily for us the Chew team are masters of the craft.

The big plot gets put on hold and we have some well deserved quality time with our main characters. People get kidnapped, setups from previous issues are resolved and there is a lot of Where's Wally peering at background details.
Both Colby and Chu get transferred to other departments so we get a nice change of scene to view our characters in a whole new light. New culinary words get made up and even weirder crimes are perpetrated.

The art is really top notch on this one. The colour work is fantastic with some great nocturnal and indoor lighting. We get to see lots of fiery lettering to contrast the usual icy words in the series that has done more for the letterer's art than any other.

There are some great page turns and a real cliff-hanger ending unlike any of the other books. The laugh out loud moment is great, and see if you can guess who Colby's new partner is before you get told. Definitely a Thumbs Up!

Tony Chu wearing a kilt. Riding a segway. That is all!

Every single volume of chew has been fantastic, and this volume is no different! You'll see plenty of familiar faces popping up in the book. Those gals from the USDA are back. So is sportswriter Dan, Amelia's insanely jealous and insanely insane from the last installment.

This is a great addition to the series and highly recommened!!

As good as the rest in the series so far, addictive! If you havent already started Chew, buy the first book, there is no turning back after!
A unique styled comic with a decent balance of humour, action, intregue, and great illustration!
