Chew Vol. 1
Chew Vol. 1: Taster's Choice | John Layman
58 posts | 116 read | 25 to read
Collects Chew Vol. 1 #1-5!
Tony Chu is a detective with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he's a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn't mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. He's been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases.

The art was good and the story sounded interesting but really it was too gross for my tastes.

MinDea I am with you on this one. My boyfriend really likes this series though. I found it to just be weird and gross. 2y

Finally finished the last 3 Chew graphic novels, and thoroughly enjoyed how everything was wrapped up, but damn, those feels ...

I thought Chew was interesting, especially since the main character investigates illegal chicken. The Captain America volume was ok. I liked the story but I didn't like how the characters were portrayed.

MinDea I enjoyed Chew! 2y

The final installment of the series, and I‘m sad to reach the conclusion. They weren‘t kidding about all the major character deaths. But the heavy foreshadowing didn‘t make it any less brutal. Tony figures out the “secret recipe” to save the world, but at a great personal cost.

Tony goes head to head with his nemesis Savoy, in this penultimate installment. He tries not to get manipulated by Savoy‘s tactics, but in the surprise end this proves to be unavoidable. The chicken conspiracy, the fire writing in the sky, and Amelia‘s manuscript are all connected in some way, and Tony must play by Savoy‘s rules in order to get to the truth.

I felt the storyline of this one was treading water a bit. A rag tag group of FDA agents attempt to take down the Vampire without Tony. But we already know that only Tony can kill the Vampire, so it fails. Great art like the previous volumes though.

Decided to give this a shot. My boyfriend read it when I first got it sent to me from the wonderful @TricksyTails and he really liked it so I figured I'd read it tonight.

I actually really enjoyed it! A few dog scenes I could have done without, but what a unique and interesting story. Did not see the twists coming at all!

Thank you so much @TricksyTails for introducing us to this graphic novel!!!! 🤗💗

Agent Tony Chu, a detective for the FDA, has a special ability. He gets a psychic impression from whatever he ingests. Chu is on the case of the weird, funny, and absurd storyline that includes a ban on chicken following a bird flu pandemic that may or may not be a government conspiracy. I will definitely be continuing on with this series.

Eyelit Enjoy - you‘re in for a wild and weird ride! 2y

Starting the final volume of CHEW this morning. I don‘t really want to read it because a) I don‘t want the story to end and, b) I‘m afraid bad things will happen to more people. But I‘m diving in.

Clwojick Thank you so much for continuing to tag me in all your graphic novel adventures! I love seeing all these gorgeous covers ♥️ 2y

Pretty fun book. Tony gets visions from food, and he uses that ability to solve crimes. Reminded me a bit of iZombie, but grosser, since he is not a zombie. I will continue this series. Some clunky exposition at first, but overall I liked it.

I've been hearing good things about this series for years and I finally decided to give it a go. It's as enjoyable as it is unusual. It's quirky and a bit off kilter but it has a solid story with some intrigue and mystery, and the art is fantastic. I'm glad I grabbed the second volume this week. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was an interesting story, if you like your stories on the grotesque side. Sometimes I don‘t mind grotesque, and this was one of those times. This graphic novel is plot-driven, and the main character is not yet fully developed, but what a plot! Cannibalism, what may or may not be avian flu, murdered space aliens, a vampire, betrayal, and a cliffhanger that leaves you wondering what happens next... Interesting enough to keep me reading!

TricksyTails One of my favorites! So funny! 2y

The incorporation and obsession of food into the crime drama genre is creative and so perfectly weird. It's gross and fantastic and remarkably investing, and the constant contrast of extremes is a fun theme to explore.

Chew vol 1

Another #trainreading finished 👍 And I gotta say that I both enjoyed and was disgusted (not in a bad way, I think) by this volume 😅 The protagonist fricken injests crime scenes for insight - so of course it's gonna be not-yummy 🤢😆 hahahah 😂

I definitely want to read the next installment...but hopefully with a cup of ginger tea. That, or the actual train ride is making me nauseous 😞
