Sweet Tooth Vol. 1: Out of the Woodsby Jeff Lemire
Following on the heels of THE NOBODY, his Vertigo graphic novel debut, writer/artist Jeff Lemire pens his very first ongoing series SWEET TOOTH. A cross between Bambi and Cormac McCarthy's The Road, SWEET TOOTH tells the story of Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children, has been raised in isolation following an inexplicable pandemic that struck a decade earlier. Now, with the death of his father he's left to fend for himself . . . until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd who promises to help him. Jepperd and Gus set out on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find 'The Preserve' a refuge for hybrids.
This unique and haunting new series is written and illustrated by Eisner-nominated creator Lemire (The Essex County Trilogy) and colored by fellow Eisner nominee Jose Villarubia.

From the wonderful writer of essex county comes a bleak apocalypse
I’ve heard nothing but good things about Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth. After finagling diving into via the first trade I see some of that but I’m not completely hooked yet. The world that Lemire introduces here is something I want to know more about. While intriguing the story was a little flat but I think it’ll speed up. Overall a decent start but I wished it wowed me.
I had heard lots of great things about this book, so I decided to give it shot. As I started reading I was really enjoying the story. I felt for the main character and his predicament. His savior really comes off as a true tough guy. Even though he is a tough guy, you can tell he is really struggling with some emotional conundrums. The artwork is wonderfully different, the raw energy pours off the page. I was a little disappointed when I got to the end of the book and it didn’t…end. I didn’t realize this was volume 1. So I was really looking forward to a conclusion so I am bit disappointed. I am not sure if my interest level was peaked enough to continue on to the next volumes. Reviewed by Chris for Book Sake.
Best Graphic Novel I've ever read. Not recommended for kids! Great story line and great artwork.
