Chew #27 – Second Helping Edition – This is why I love CHEW: Issue #27 was released in May 2011, after issue #15 and prior to issue #16. Yep, right in the middle! The Second Helping Edition is now released in order and context, jam packed with extras and supplemental material so even if you’ve already read it, you haven’t!
