Book Review: Chew, Vol. 3: Just Desserts by John Layman

Chew, Vol. 3: Just Desserts by John Layman (2010
128 pages
Series: Chew #3
Goodreads Summary: Things are looking up for Tony Chu, the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats. He’s got a girlfriend. He’s got a partner he trusts. He even seems to be getting along with his jerk boss. But his ruthless ex-partner is still out there, operating outside of the law, intending to make good on his threats against Tony and everybody Tony cares about. It’s just a matter of time before their investigations collide, blood spills and, inevitably, body parts are eaten.

I started reading this series back in 2011 and absolutely loved it at the time.  But then I couldn’t get my hands on another copy at the library and eventually forgot about it.  Then I rediscovered it recently and decided to start reading it again, just in time too now that volume 7 is coming out in August!!

So this book continues the story of Tony Chu who can eat things (not necessarily food) and find out where it came from.  He uses this skill to help solve crimes and has lots of crazy adventures along the way.  I don’t want to reveal any spoilers about it if you haven’t read the first 2 books so I won’t say that much about it.

I really love this series as it’s so unique and is fast paced.  It’s a little violent and graphic but not overly so.  This individual book wasn’t as amazing as I remember the first two but that’s because I’m a bit rusty on the story.  But overall I’d highly recommend it to lovers of graphic novels as well as science fiction and good stories.

My Rating:  ★★★☆☆
