Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After his near fatal beating in Volume 5, Tony Chu, cibopath (pronounced "see-bo-path") is laid up in a hospital bed for the entirety of Volume 6 so John Layman puts his twin sister, Toni, in the spotlight. Toni is a cibovoyant (pronounced "see-bo-voyant" - I know, there's a lotta odd words in this series) meaning she can take a bite of something living and see their futures.

So we follow Toni as she helps her brother get revenge on his nemesis, a rival restauranteur; what happens when you mix frogs and chickens - "chogs" - who then breed with psychedlic frogs; the strange case of Judy Heinz-Campbell; and what the vampire collector has been up to...

Toni's much more outgoing and her adventures, while similar to Tony's, tend to be more successful as she's more capable than her cannibalistic brother. I love Tony but Toni's her own character which is gravy. Layman does a great job of giving her a rich backstory with numerous funny flashbacks so that by the end of the book, the effect is more gut-wrenching. But I don't want to spoil it for you.

This book is hilarious! "Chew" has always been a comedic series but "Space Cakes" is the funniest this series has been in a while. Remember that character from earlier, Poyo the Fighting Cock? Well all I can say is that Layman must've grown up watching "The Six Million Dollar Man" and thought, man I wish Steve Austin was a chicken, because Poyo basically becomes the Bionic Man, er, chicken! Poyo gets his own one-shot issue, "Secret Agent Poyo", and it's so funny, from the cover where he's wearing a tux, Bond-style, to the numerous add-ons and gadgets he's been grafted with. There's even a sequence in Hell where Poyo beats up the Devil!

By 365 Graphic Novels on 23 Feb. 2014
Format: Paperback
This is another visually stunning book. If Andy Warhol made comics they wouldn’t be half as good as this. Here is another amazingly bold piece of art. Everything is turned up to the max. The colours, the framing, the expressions and the magnificent lettering.

There are more of the same daring narrative techniques, ubiquitous in the Chew series, with ambitious prologues, confusing timelines, and dynamic flashbacks. There is only one thing missing. The story. And this isn’t some clever experiment either. With our lead character in a coma what we get are a series of extended gags and second tier ideas stretched beyond their means. Agent Poyo has his own story, Tony’s brother does too but most of time we follow Toni Chu, his sister.

This is definitely the weakest of all the books to date. With no compelling, or even coherent storyline to drive us forward it just feels like the advert break. Let’s hope we get Tony back soon and this series returns to its full potential. Only for the great art and lettering does this book deserve a Thumbs Up!

Volume 6 carries on with the oddness and adds more, managing to keep my interest fully. So glad I gave "Chew" a go.

Good quirky fun, anything with Poyo has to be good. Must say though I would have liked to see more of the herorine particularly in later offerings
Graphics and story line up to snuff.
