Not me, but I'm very happy it did. Its with big anticipation that I wait for every Chew volume to arrive and thus far I have not been disappointed. Sure it lost a bit of steam in the past 2 or 3 volumes, but it never got stale.
This time Layman and Guillory recaptured the original magic and even managed to one up the original story. Agent Chu recovers his mojo and then some in this 7th volume of one of the freshest and most original comics out there.
How is it?
Ever wonder what it would be like if Tony Chu ever got sick of being pushed around and decided to take control of everything and in the process became a major Badass? This is basically what happens in this story arc.
After the demise of Toni (Tony's sister) in the last volume, Tony's heart hardens and he stop staking bullshit. Be it from his family, his boss, his partner and even from his enemies. Regardless of what everyone says he decides to hunt the Vampire down and make him pay for killing his sister.
|Me Tarzan, you Chu!|
This book has a place in everyone's reading pile, wishlist or shelf. It continues to bring fresh and original stories and if quirky is your thing, then Chew is your book. This is probably one of the best TPB of the series thus far and things look promising for the future. Chew is a sure bet. get it, read it and you're (most probably) going to love it.
