From that description, as meager as it is, you should know this is a bad idea. As it turns out, an ambitiously bad idea, as
Savoy comes up with a way to force Tony to see his side of things, or so he thinks. This flawed plan goes bad immediately, and while they have to work together – kind of – to find a way out of it, Tony isn’t really swayed by Savoy’s arguments. And how could he be? Even if you ignored everything else Savoy has done to Tony, the fact that he cut off a piece of him and ate him is pretty unforgivable. Tony even reminds him of this, but Savoy is pompous enough to not see this as an impediment. After all, what’s an ear between frenemies?

Also, Paneer may have just discovered something about that weird alien writing in the sky. Or has he? Since we’re coming close to an end, I’m going to assume yes, but they’re teasing us.

Basically this issue is a filler, setting up the final battle we know has to come, but it’s an action packed filler, introducing a new food based power that may or may not come up again before this series wraps.

The art remains as solid as ever, with some dynamic action and well rendered backgrounds. The art’s as fun as the story, which is always a great thing.

So, Chew is nearing the end, and I’m already starting to miss it. *sniff* Don’t go, Chew! What will I do without you?
