      *this one already had a kinda sorta review, so i am adding my form-letter review and pictures to the end, but i'm keeping the squawking at the top because i still feel this pain.*ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???i don't know how you comic book people do it, writing consistently interesting reviews of these things without getting either bogged down or burned out. i still haven't reviewed volumes 2-5 of this because i never know what to say and i'd rather keep reading 'em to see what happens next than [...]

      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 [...]

      Okay, something huge happened in this volume. I won't spoil it to you guys!Chew Chew Chew, why are you always fun to read? With six volumes, you have never failed to bore me and volume 6 may be the funniest of them all! And it may be the most lighthearted as well, given that Toni (Tony's twin sister) steps up the stage as the main character in this volume. Toni's personality is genuinely golden and lighthearted and I love the way she is utterly happy with her powers as compared with Tony's (not [...]

      Wow. Talk about taking things up a notch. Tony spends this volume in the hospital, recovering from the events of the previous volume. So his twin sister Toni takes over as protagonist, just for this book. It's a nice change. I like Tony well enough, but Toni is a much more fun character to follow. She's far more cheerful, far less long-suffering, and probably smarter and more capable than him. Following her around was a lot of fun. Which made the ending that much more of a kick to the stomach. I [...]

      Great fun to read.So brilliantly funny throughout and POYO! What a legend!Long live POYO!

      Tony's sister is weird. Not her extra-sensory power (which, as another food-related variant on the cibopathic brother, allows her to sense the future of anything that she consumes if it's still alive - such as her boss, whose shoulder she chomps after a.onal moment), but in how chipper and nearly oblivious she is to negative events and conversations around her. Almost as if she's immune to negativity - which would be an amazing superpower on its own.Poyo is an obvious favourite - he's made out t [...]

      With Chu convalescing in the hospital, (someone has thoughtfully brought him a "Sux 2 Be You" balloon bearing a frowny face), it's up to sister Toni to take up the slack.This volume is packed with good stuff, including an exploding meat suit (GaGa go boom!), toad-licking, a plague of livestock raining from the heavens, POYO! the "bionic" rooster strutting his stuff, and a real shocker of an ending.I'm completely taken with the so-ugly-they're-cute Chogs - (cross a chicken with a frog) - pictured [...]

    • Mel says:

      The worst one so far. The plot progression just doesn't exist in these middle volumes. Really disappointed with where it's gone. BUT I still like them and find them entertaining enough to continue on. Around The Year in 52 Books Challenge #47 - A book with a food or drink in the title

    • Allie says:

      I have surprisingly, yet wholeheartedly enjoyed this series, but this volume is my favourite so far. I laughed so much! One thing that makes this series even more enjoyable is that you can see signs/posters in the background, and they're hilarious. The following signs are from hospital scenes:Wash your stank hands!Hospital not responsible for any bad stuff. Ever. Don't sue us!!!Bed pans do not double as soup bowls or do they? ---MGMTHappy thoughts! You ain't dead yet!Sponge bath happy ending: $5 [...]

    • Bookishrealm says:

      goodness this is probably my favorite volume of Chew so far! Toni oh gosh. This definitely broke my heart! But I don't believe that we've seen the last of her well at least I hope not. I'm so happy that I decided to read this series again because I definitely have been missing out on its wonderful artwork and story line. There is so much to be explained and discovered and I can't wait to completely dive into it.

      I just finished Chew 5: Big League Chew yesterday, so this was very fresh jumping into #6. Just balls to the wall funny.Tony is recovering from his run in with his gf's crazy ex, so we shift to Toni, his twin sister, who becomes the main protagonist for the book.This is a fun shift, as we get to see a bit more about her and what she's about. This is now the 3rd (and 4th) time we see someone in bed with their supervisor (this time NASA, and it's not Colby!). We also see the return of a character [...]

    • Kaitlin says:

      It's been a fairly long time since I read Volume.5 in this series (over half a year!) and yet I got straight back into the action with this volume and I really enjoyed getting to meet Toni in more detail and see her powers and talents rather than focusing solely on Tony. This is a story where chicken is outlawed, people are frequently chopped up or have chunks bitten out of them, and there's a killer rooster I mean, what more is there to really say other than it's crazy but excellently entertain [...]

    • Say says:

      Information overload. But still an enjoyable read. Toni gets the spotlight but the ending is that for real? Really? Noooooooooo!!!!

    • Kate (infinitelynovel) says:

      I do not like how that endedbut most definitely my favourite volume of Chew to date.

    • Aldo Haegemans says:

      Best book in the series so far!They keep adding and building to the story, this felt like THAT moment where you think, This is everything it has been building to and we have only Just started! F A N T A S T I C!!!

    • Peter Derk says:

      This series just continues to impress me. It's so different from just about anything else out there. It's got the ability to go between wild fiction to real moments of pain. It runs the gamut of emotion, and at the same time it's a legitimately fun read.This volume focuses mostly on Tony Chu's sister, Antonia. I've been reading a lot of stuff online lately that questions female comic book characters, especially the way they appear and the way they dress. I have to say, Antonia is one of the bett [...]

    • Kurt says:

      Chew has kept its focus mostly on Tony Chu, a cibopathic government agent who tries to solve crimes and manage his love life in a chaotic world of food weirdoes (if you haven't read the first five volumes, then (1) this review probably won't make much sense, and (2) please do. You'll thank me.), but in the last volume, he took some hard hits, so this volume lets him rest a while as his twin sister Toni takes off on her own adventures. Toni has been a presence in the rest of the series, but she n [...]

    • Scott Foley says:

      I’ve been a huge fan of Chew since I ran across it in the public library soon after the first volume’s release. An intelligent, action-packed, wickedly funny epic, Chew is the story of Tony Chu, a cop who can basically see the past of anything he eats – and I do mean anything. By this sixth volume, Space Cakes, the cast of Chew has grown and evolved to the point that its main character, Tony, is actually comatose for most of the story while everyone else carries on, and that makes it no le [...]

    • Hilary says:

      I started in on this series after it had ended, and I am very happy I made that choice. It would've driven me a bit mad constantly waiting for the next issue. The series is addictive as it is funny and engaging. The artwork is fantastic, the palette vibrant, and the plot a series of twists and turns that is consistently catching me by surprise - not just with the big things, but also the little details. It's clearJohn Layman really knows what he's doing.This volume just It's difficult to go into [...]

    • Alan says:

      This is part of a spare time binge read (I have volumes 6,7,8 on top of the comics TBR stack), and Tony Chu is pretty much out of the picture in this one. His injuries from the previous volume having laid him up in the hospital. The focus shifts primarily to his sister Toni, and remember this is a world where some humans can do unusual things either with food or by eating food.Toni can predict the short-term future of someone when she bites them. She is also a special agent for NASA (yes that NA [...]

    • Lauren Stoolfire says:

      The sixth volume of John Layman's Chew is a bit of a change. It primarily follows Toni, Tony's twin sister, while Tony is recovering after the events of volume five. Toni is cibovoyant, meaning that she will get a vision of the future of anything living that she bite into or ingests. Toni is great and is incredibly likable, but things begin to turn pretty dark. Although we don't get to see much of Tony, this volume is still just as good as previous installments mostly due to the strength of Toni [...]

    • Khara says:

      Why is it that the Climatologist is always the bad guy? Huh? Even in comic books, wtf, Batman. This is me not talking about what I really want to be talking about about this book, because if I did, it's an uber spoiler. So, yeah. Climatologists, man

    • Michelle says:

      My favourite Chew volume of the 9 I've read! Toni is awesome. She should be the star of this series.

    • Charles says:

      This series continues to be nothing short of amazing. This volume manages to progress the plot of the story while not even using the protagonist. Great ending, and great use of side characters.

    • Anna says:

      OMG! Is that really happened? Please nooo! I'm so sad now :(

    • Sanaa says:

      [5 Stars] This was my favorite volume of the series so far. It was absolutely off the wall and fantastic! I love Toni, and particularly loved how this book focused on her.

    • Hassinger says:

      [WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS PROFANITY AND LOTS OF SPOILERS.]After the consistent quality of the first five volumes of Chew, Layman finally failed to top himself with his delivery of Space Cakes. There is essentially no difference between Space Cakes and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: sandwiched between all of the action-packed volumes of the series, we find one that is almost completely filler and misdirect, leading up to a very important death. I fully expect things to pick up again [...]

    • Kathrin says:

      Another good one, but we are losing one of our characters! 😭Good side Poyo 🐓is getting more action.

    • BMK says:

      This series is great. Funny, full of cool ideas and some decent twists.
