    My favorite of the volumes so far. I laughed out loud so many times. There was a lot of great moments. Only complaint... we needed more of POYO!

    The writing and the art pair perfectly. I laughed out loud a few times throughout this book and have become thoroughly charmed by the zany world they live in. Really love all the characters and the storyline. I’m so glad I started this.

    I did re-read the end of Volume 3 to remind myself of what was going on but this volume was definitely a fun one. Chew always has great humour and a high level of entertainment and this is no exception. A great continuation of the series and now I extra can't wait for the next volume!!

    Took a long time off after issue 30, and I'm glad I did—glad also that I came back. But I think the book worked a lot better as a result of letting the end of issue 30 sit for a while.

    Chew just gets better and better. The fourth volume of the Omnivore Edition, featuring Bad Apples and Family Recipe has the same quirky humour to which we've become accustomed and each chapter has its own short case for one of the main characters to work through. We also see parts of the longer story arcs come together, as Gallsaberries, the Avian Flu, the "Vampire", chicken baron Montero, the mysterious writing in the sky and NASA all start to be woven together that little bit more.

But what makes this volume stand out is the depth of feeling it generates as Tony Chu works through his grief for the death of his sister Toni while simultaneously trying to revive his relationship with his daughter, Olive. Layman's writing is fantastic and blends seamlessly with Guillory's artwork. Guillory has captured the characters emotions flawlessly bringing individuality and life to each. He also peppers the pages with jokes and visual cues that help readers put together events and their relative significance. The whole thing is just brilliant.

    So. The main story about the Cibopath Agent Chu in the FDA after the chicken apocalypse is brilliantly absurd and super fun! Main characters are well written and the plot line is more or less in constant development. Sadly the series as a whole is somewhat difficult to read due to psychedelic trips into nonsense. The first 40ish isues of Chew are just excellent ranging from 4 to 5 stars - but around vol 8 the absurdist side stories about devilish cyberneticly enhanced fda animal agents takes the So.

Vol 11 / issues 49-55 remedy the nonsensical a bit and land on 3 stars but the last 10 issues are also marred with sporadic detours away from the center story about Agent Chu into Hell ect and land on 2 stars.

    I am far too amused by these books, really. I did get a bit annoyed by all of the extra characters with special skills (and the corresponding really bizarre names for the skills), but I still really enjoy this series. I especially love the little extra humor hidden in the pictures. You really need to read the book, and then go back through it and just study all of the art. So much embedded humor in there.

    The amazingly funny and creative team of Layman and Guillory have done it again. Volume 4 of Chew is just as exciting and mysterious as all previous volumes. Get into this story now and you won't regret it. The Omnivore Editions are as cheaply priced and overly beautiful as you can get. Image Comics great production continues as these books are made to last. The amazingly funny and creative team of Layman and Guillory have done it again.

    It's starting to get weird for weird's sake and convoluted. The "food-abilities" are getting goofy and repetitive. "This guy can make weapons out of chocolate." "This guy can make weapons out of... uh, let's say, Jell-o." It's not as funny the third or fourth time. It's starting to get weird for weird's sake and convoluted.

    I like how Olive is bonding with Amelia. So really cool art done in other styles. Great extras at end.

    I read this series to the end, but found it to pall about half-way through. In the end the jokes were quite irritating.

    Usually, I love reading Chew. However, I was very disappointed to see that vol. 4 was full of transphobic jokes. Marginalized people are not a punchline.

    Man. When I wanted Chew, this is the volume I wanted. This had everything, the emotional pathos, the wacky bananas, the driving plot, Olive, Toni. God yes. I am so energized.

    Chu using all the drug stuff was a little slow, but the rest of the book was really great.

Now since this is the fourth collection, gathering issues #31-40, of the series, if you're new to the comic, I suggest you go back to the beginning ( Chew: The Omnivore Edition, Vol. 1). There's absolutely no sense in starting from here. I mean, even I had trouble of remembering all of the twists and turns that had happened so far, because it had been a while since I read the previous volume. And for the review, I'll just say that compared to the previous volumes, this one just has more of everything (view spoiler)[(except for Poyo, whose "absence" is noted quite hilariously at one point in the story) (hide spoiler)] , both in good and bad. At times there just seems to be too much to ingest (pun intended). But nevertheless, I'm still invested in the story and want to see where they end up with it. I hope it doesn't go on forever, because I'd rather see a thought-out strong ending, but we'll see.

    This volume of Chew was one of the best of the set so far. I had a lot of problems with "Major League Chew" since it felt pretty out of place in the larger storyline and like all of the chapters could be excised from the narrative and it would actually be a stronger book. Here, however, the hunt for the vampire deepens in both Savoy's and Tony's side, while slowly (really slowly, a bit too slowly) revealing clues as to what really happened with the bird flu epidemic (from all the way back in the This volume of Chew was one of the best of the set so far.

Here, however, the hunt for the vampire deepens in both Savoy's and Tony's side, while slowly (really slowly, a bit too slowly) revealing clues as to what really happened with the bird flu epidemic (from all the way back in the first issue) and the space stuff. What makes this side work more, like the latter half of Volume 3 and the parts before, was that Chew is starting to do more than just comedy and gore really well. There are real feelings here, and Toni's storyline is really moving, while not dropping even a tiny bit of the absurdity. I don't think I've ever felt like chomping on the severed toes of your loved ones could ever be so emotional and lovely, but hey, it's Chew. The pacing in this book was better, too, with the momentum towards the end really starting to kick in. If chapter 60 really is the end (as it's been suggested in tweets and odd flashes to the future in the book itself), we're getting ready for it. I didn't feel like the cliffhanger held up compared to the other books (the big ones for the ends of the 10-story arches in these omnivore books tend to be really something) but otherwise this was a great addition to the series.

    More Chew, more goodness. For those who don't know, Chew is about a special cop named Tony Chu who has the special power of experiencing the history about everything he eats. So, if he eats a piece of toast, he'll see where the wheat was grown, how it was produced. It gets substantially more unpleasant when he eats meat. Tony eventually joins the FDA, the most powerful government enforcing the chicken ban after a bunch of people died in a bird flu epidemic. This feels like a weaker entry into the More Chew, more goodness.

This feels like a weaker entry into the series, a kind of middle with no beginning or end. A lot of the book felt like it was moving set pieces in place for the finale. Even though it feels weaker than its predecessors, it still had a lot of the same zany humor and gross-out situations. Still recommend if people enjoyed the previous installments of Chew. P.S. See my previous reviews of the previous books for more about the series.

    I can't deny i love chew! The wierdness is just pure fun. It never takes itself to seriously and yet behind the strange, funny little referances (i especially like the hat from the song whip it) it has a really solid story line. I actully think the introduction of powers are just perfect and they come in such a great and varied quantity you wonder what Layman will do next. You can feel the climax of thos story is coming soon. In an interview i did with Layman last year he told us the Chew cartoo I can't deny i love chew! The wierdness is just pure fun.

    This was exactly what I hoped the previous volume of Chew would be like; huge twists, massive reveals and the story beginning to close off. Threads are collected, mysteries revealed, jokes are made, and the whole thing keeps getting weirder and more bizarre. As things are tied together and answers are teased, I am very excited to see where this ends up. Only twenty issues, or two more of these omnivore-editions, to go. I am both excited and sad that that the end is coming.

    I think I prefer these in the trade paperbacks to the Omnivore editions; the wackiness of the Chew world works better for me in slightly smaller doses, with a palate cleanser between. Those sewn-in ribbons for marking your place sure are handy, though. And I'm enjoying watching all the plot threads slowly come together; I'm starting to trust that the series might just wrap up as scheduled, and in a satisfying way.

    An upswing in storytelling, for me, in this series! Tony is on a mission of revenge for his sister, Toni, and he has his daughter, partner, heck everyone, helping him out! Lots of people with lots of weird "food powers" in these pages! And it appears that we are headed for a showdown with "the vampire"! Sweet! Gives the reader something to chew on..

    John Layman and Rob Guillory continues their incredible ron with Tony Chu, cibopathic detective extraordinaire. His ability to discern the past by ingesting or biting into food through psychic means leads him to more trouble including the death of his sister with a similar power except she sees the future. Weird food shit at its most creative here. Burp!

    Toni steals the show via her big toe, and reveals what NASA's been sitting on. (Pause while reviewer reaches for tissue box, finds it empty. Frak!) I love all the details in Guillory's panels. I had flashbacks of younger me pouring over the pages of Watchmen. Half-star bonus for Olive's Lying Cat shirt! And as usual, the "Meanwhile, Poyo!!!" spreads blew me away. Fan-freakin-tastic.

    This is still one of my favorite comic / graphic novel reads of all time. The story and artwork is so perfectly matched, so imaginative, so off-the-wall crazy. There is nothing else like it. Every panel is a wonderland of hilarity. I just can't get enough. This is still one of my favorite comic / graphic novel reads of all time.
